If Taylor Swift cries after winning an award, but the moment isn't televised, did it really happen? Only Swift knows, because 2015's superhero of the year already won a 2016 Grammy Award before tonight's live show even began. Swift snagged an award, for Best Pop Vocal Album, before the official ceremony, along with the likes of Louis C.K. (Best Comedy Album), Alabama Shakes (Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical), and Joni Mitchell (Best Album Notes).
As much fun as it would have been to watch Kanye West storm Jimmy Carter on stage, the 39th President of the United States is just one of many previously announced winners who won't be accepting their awards on live TV. Still, a win is a win, which is why we're updating the complete list of all Grammy Award winners right here throughout the night. Watch this space!
