David Bowie not only won ALL five of the Grammys he was nominated for (Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Alternative Music Album, Best Recording Package, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical), but he also swept his two nominations at the Brit awards too!

David's Brits win for British Male Solo Artist was accepted by Michael C. Hall, whose speech was so lovely and poignant.

And a lovely surprise that David's son, Duncan Jones, accepted David's final Brits award for British Album of the Year with a speech so touching and a throwback to a humble beginning.

Like saving the best for last.

For those who may not know, "Kooks" is a song off Hunky Dory that David wrote for Duncan when he was a little boy. It was the one of very rare times that David shared with us a glimpse of his personal life through song. It's one of his best and most nostalgic songs he's ever done.

Duncan reminded us that we are kooks and should be very proud of that as his dad was so proud of us for being kooks. This one's for us, for David Bowie. Thank you for everything, Mr. Jones.
