LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Get Lucky by Daft Punk has won record of the year at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

New Zealand singer Lorde's mega-hit Royals won song of the year, as music's biggest night drew towards its climax.

Accepting the award on stage with co-songwriter Joel Little, she said: "Thank you everyone who has let this song explode... it's been kind of mental."

She beat rival songs Just Give Me A Reason by Pink, Locked Out Of Heaven by Bruno Mars, Roar by Katy Perry and Same Love by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in the category.
