“I” by Kendrick Lamar took home the Grammy for best rap song Sunday.

Lamar beat out “Anaconda” by Nicky Minaj, “Bound 2” by Kanye West, “We Dem Boyz” by Wiz Khalifa, and “0 to 100/The Catch Up” by Drake.

He also took home the award for best rap performance.

Taylor Swift almost seemed more excited than the rapper was.

“IM NOT CRYING IM NOT CRYING IM NOT CRYING,” she wrote on Twitter.

The 57th Annual Grammy Awards, hosted by LL Cool J for the fourth year in a row, are airing live on CBS.
