The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards were on last night and all the awards have been handed out. Do you think the winners deserved their awards?

Some say that Billie Eilish shouldn't have taken home as many awards as she did (five out of the six she was nominated for), and some say that Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey were completely snubbed.

If you think about it, anyone who wasn't Billie Eilish kind of got snubbed. She won five awards. That's five categories of people who got nothing.

Let's talk about Billie Eilish for a quick second first. This mega superstar took home five out of her six nominations last night. She swept the four main categories and left everyone else in her dust.

Her wins included Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year. She also won Best Pop Vocal Album of the Year. At some point during the award show, people were sick of hearing her name (including Billie herself).

Ariana Grande's album thank u, next was well received by fans all over the world, so it was strange to see that she didn't pick up a single award.

Grande was nominated for five awards, Album of the Year (thank u, next), Record of the Year ("7 Rings"), Best Pop Solo Performance ("7 Rings"), Best Pop Duo/Group Performance ("Boyfriend"), and Best Pop Vocal Album (thank u, next).

All of which she lost to Eilish aside from Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, which went to "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Lana Del Rey was robbed in a similar way. Her album Norman F**king Rockwell! was also widely loved by fans, yet took home no awards.

However, Del Rey was only nominated for two awards. Album of the Year (Norman F**king Rockwell!) and Song of the Year ("Norman F**king Rockwell").

However, she took home neither of these awards because Eilish swiped both wins. It does seem unfair when one person wins all four major categories, they basically become the winner for the entire night.

When one person wins all the awards it's kind of like, "I guess no one else needed to show up." However, even when Billie won Album of the Year, she got on stage and told the world that it should have gone to Ariana Grande's thank u, next.

Did you think the Grammys were actually the Scammys? What about Billie Eilish, did she deserve all five of her awards, leaving no space for anyone else to win?

Billie Eilish's clean sweep left lots of other artists without wins, but at least Eilish is balling with her five new Grammys.
