Sam Smith won the coveted Song of the Year award at the Grammys on Sunday. "I'm having a really good night," Smith said, after collecting his third award of the 2015 Grammys, following Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album for "In the Lonely Hour."

The nominees included Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass," Sia's "Chandelier," Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" and Hozier's "Take Me to Church."

Last month, "Stay With Me" came under fire when it was revealed that Sam Smith would pay royalties to Tom Petty for the song, due to its similarities to Petty's classic hit, "I Won't Back Down." Smith's camp called it a "complete coincidence," and Petty seemed to hold no hard feelings toward the singer.

Smith also performed at the Grammys with Mary J. Blige. It was great.
