Lorde has won the 2014 Grammy award for Song of The Year with Royals, beating out the likes of Katy Perry (Roar), Pink (Just Give Me A Reason), Bruno Mars (Locked Out Of Heaven), Ben Haggerty (Same Love).

The very first Grammy Awards ceremony was conducted on May 4, 1959, and it was used to honor the musical accolades by performances from well known artists with the most popular of the achievements presented in a largely viewed TV ceremony.

The respective festivities began at the Hollywood Walk of Fame project during the 1950s. The committee at the Walk of Fame put together a list of notable recording industry individuals who may quality for one of its stars.

The Song of The Year award has been presented since 1958. It's one of the top four awards given out at the event. While this award goes to the person who composes the song, the Record of the Year is given to both the performer and production team.

It's presented to the songwriter that of a track that "must contain melody and lyrics and must be either a new song or a song first achieving prominence during the eligibility year. Songs containing prominent samples or interpolations are not eligible," according to Grammys description guide.
