The first of the “Big Four” Grammy Awards has been distributed, and it did not go to the frontrunner.
While Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” was the betting favorite for the victory, Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” has been officially declared the winner.
In terms of betting lines, “Thinking Out Loud” was oddsmakers’ #2 pick.
Earlier in the night, “Thinking Out Loud” earned Sheeran a victory for best pop solo performance. It is also up for Record Of The Year.
In addition to “Blank Space,” Sheeran’s tune beat out Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright,” Wiz Khalifa & Charlie Puth’s “See You Again,” and Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush.”
