Justin Timberlake, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis ‘Dominate’ Grammy R&B and Rap Winners

Move over Jay Z. Move over Kanye, Drake, Kendrick, Tamar Braxton and Fantasia. Grammy wins in major R&B and Rap categories went to Justin Timberlake and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis back to back at Sunday's 56th Grammy Awards.

The coveted awards were handed out back to back starting at the pre-telecast ceremony in Los Angeles, with Timberlake pulling wins in R&B and Music Video categories.

"The 20/20 Experience" singer's first win was in the Best R&B Song category for "Pusher Love Girl." A songwriters award, Timberlake shares Best R&B Song with James Fauntleroy, Jerome Harmon and Timothy Mosley (Timbaland).

Though it's technically not his award, visuals for his single "Suit and Tie," won in the Best Music Video category as well. "Suit & Tie" Grammys will go to David Fincher, video director; and Timory King, video producer.

With hits like "Thrift Shop," Macklemore and Ryan Lewis swept every single Rap/Hip-Hop category except for Rap/Sung Collaboration — a category they were not nominated in.

Earning a total of three awards during the pre-telecast, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis picked up Best Rap Performance ("Thrift Shop"), Best Rap Song ("Thrift Shop") and Best Rap Album ("The Heist").

The duo also won Best New Artist.
