All the MINOR Categories have been Awarded: Recap:

Queen Beyoncé became the first multiple winner of 2016, winning Best R&B Performance and Best R&B / Urban Song. She accpeted the Awards dignified and humble, thanking HUGO for all the promo and hard work. In her backstage interview she said: "I feel incredibly honored for winning my very first MSSA Awards. 2016 has been such a great for me and I'm so thankful for everything the Lord blessed me with."

BIG BUMMER: Alicia Keys wins "Best R&B / Urban Album", was the headline we could all read on Rolling Stone Magazine Online. The online portal claimed that it [HERE] wouldn't be half as good as Lemonade. "She was robbed", is what we can read in the comments sections. "Alicia Keys crafted one of the difinitive R&B albums of 2016 that showcases great depth in lyrical songwriting and self-expression, dressed in beautiful understated melodies and contemporary production", is what we can read on the MSSA Academy's decision letter. In her backstage interview Keys said: "I don't know why I've won this, I'd personally apologize to Beyoncé and hand her my Award, but then I'm also very proud of my album. I feel like I've been a MSSA Jury favourite for years now. I want to dedicate this Award to my lovely husband and kids."

Coldplay did not dominate 2016, but they did something right. Their biggest achievement of 2015/2016 is to record and release "Up & UP". Chris Martin said: "That one song saved our career!" And it did. Coldplay who were spotted hugging and celebrating their victories with Beyoncé and Jay Z, won two Awards for Best Music Video and Best Rock / Alternative Song. Noel Gallagher who plays guitar on the song, said: "Finally something I can agree with. The catering here is the pits."

Sensational: Il Volo from Italy are the mediterranean front runners, stealing 2 Awards from one of the nights most nominated artists: Marco Mengoni. The trio currently ranks as the night's biggest winners with 2 awards, tied with Coldplay and Beyoncé. When they grabbed the Award for Best Foreign language Vocal Performance and Best Live Vocal Performance of 2016 they improvised on their winning chanson: Nessun Dorma to a standing ovation in the room. Even Mengoni applauded his Italian table-mates.
