"I have the utmost respect for her as an artist and a person", Santana added. "You are our light". I was completely rooting for her, I voted for her.

In the pre-telecast, Beyonce's younger sister, critical R&B darling Solange, won her first Grammy for best R&B performance (it was her first-ever nomination).
In response, Knowles tweeted out a link to Frank Ocean's Tumblr post that accused the Grammys of "cultural bias" when Taylor Swift beat Kendrick Lamar for Album of the Year in 2014.
