Kanye West has accused the Grammys of “disrespecting music artists” after Beck won the award for ‘Album of the Year’ instead of Beyoncé.

kanyeWhen Beck was accepting his award, Kanye West went towards the stage, but stopped before he said anything. Many people thought that this would be a repeat of 2009.

In 2009 Kanye West stormed the stage when Taylor Swift won an award. West shouted that Beyoncé should have won, not Taylor Swift.

This time, Kanye West decided not to storm the stage out of consideration for his daughter, North West. He wanted to set a good example for her.

After the event, Kanye told the world how angry he was that Beck had beaten Beyoncé. He said that Beck should have refused the award and given it to Beyoncé because she deserved it more.

Beck won two Grammy awards this year. The artist with the most was Sam Smith who won four awards. To see a list of the winners, click: http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-31277530
