Smith was rewarded for being the only solo artist to sell more than a million albums in both the UK and US in 2014.

Pharrell Williams, Beyonce and Rosanne Cash, daughter of country legend Johnny, won three awards each.

Beck won two, including best album. Other British winners included Clean Bandit with Jess Glynne and Aphex Twin.
