UPDATE: It’s a wrap! Head here for all the highlights, winners, hits and misses of The 2016 Grammy Awards.

The 58th Annual Grammy Awards are officially underway, with a raft of awards having been dished out before the official broadcast ceremony kicks off at midday AEDT.

(UPDATE 12.00PM: The televised ceremony has begun, See the list of new winners from the televised ceremony updated below.)

Bluesfest 2016 headliner Kendrick Lamar lead this year’s pack of nominees, and has so far scooped four of his total 11 nominations, including the awards for Best Rap Song (Alright), Best Rap Performance (Alright) and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (These Walls).

Taylor Swift has also already bagged two of her seven Grammy nods, taking out Best Pop Vocal Album for 1989 and Best Music Video for Bad Blood (which also counts as a win for Kendrick).

News of T-Swizzle’s latter award win apparently prompted some excitement backstage, where Tay was chilling with BFF Selena Gomez:

Sorry Justin Bieber bashers, the Biebs has also bagged a win with his mates Skrillex and Diplo in the Best Dance Recording category for Where Are Ü Now, while Skrill and Dip also took out Best Dance/Electronic Album for Skrillex And Diplo Present Jack Ü.

While The Weeknd has snagged two of his seven gongs so far, including Best R&B Performance for Earned It from 50 Shades Of Grey and Best Urban Contemporary Album for Beauty Behind The Madness.

While Muse have taken out the Best Rock Album Grammy for their new LP, Drones and Ghost has won Best Metal Performance.

Ed Sheeran has claimed all the love in the Best Pop Solo Performance category for his song Thinking Out Loud, while Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have taken out the Pop Duo/Group Performance field for their mega-hit Uptown Funk.

Other Grammy winners so far include Buddy Guy for Best Blues Album, Ricky Martin for Best Latin Pop Album, D’Angelo and the Vanguard for Best R&B Album, and Alabama Shakes have snagged three trophies: one for Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical) and one Best Alternative Music Album (Sound & Colour) and another for Best Rock Song (Don’t Wanna Fight).

While Amy Winehouse documentary Amy, directed by Asif Kapadia, has taken out the award for Best Music Film.

Plenty of Aussies were honoured with nominations at this year’s Grammy Awards, including Melbourne troubadour Courtney Barnett, Perth psych-rockers Tame Impala, Melbourne future-soul heroes Hiatus Kaiyote and veteran country music veteran Keith Urban.

Unfortunately, the latter three have already lost out in their respective categories – Tame to Alabama Shakes, Keith to Chris Stapleton and Hiatus Kaiyote to The Weeknd.

We’ll keep you updated when C-Barn’s Best New Artist category get announced.

Meanwhile, there are also plenty of super-exciting performances to come as the official broadcast goes live, including a supergroup tribute to late Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, another all-star jam featuring Travis Barker, Pitfall and Robin Thicke, Lady Gaga performing a David Bowie tribute and a potential song from Drake (although he’d have us believe otherwise).

During the Grammy Awards pre-gala, Beck joined forces with Dave Grohl and other surviving members of Nirvana to cover David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World in tribute to the late Starman.
