Lorde's "Royals" won Song of the Year at the 56th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Because Song of the Year is awarded to songwriters, Lorde -- whose full name is Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor -- shares the accolade with producer Joel Little.

The song topped Pink and Nate Ruess' "Just Give Me a Reason," Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven," Katy Perry's "Roar" and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Same Love."

"Royals" spent nine consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song was also nominated for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.

Recent Song of the Year winners include Adele's "Rolling in the Deep," Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now," Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and Coldplay's "Viva la Vida."
