Winner’s Circle: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are Grammys Royals


So long Lupita. See you later Leonardo. Tonight, it was all about the melodious moments and catchy choruses that made 2013 sound a little bit sweeter. Though mouths were agape during Beyoncé’s come-hither “Drunk in Love,” and Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons reigned as the best performers of the night, it was Macklemore Ryan Lewis, Recording Academy favorites, who surfaced as victors, sealing their fates as Best New Artist, and 2014’s most promising act.
