Beyonce made history last night (3-14) as she racked up her 28th win and became the most awarded female artist ever in the history of the Grammy Awards. Mid-way through the night she tied for the record as she shared a win with Meghan Thee Stallion for Best Rap Song, for “Savage,” but the big moment came about 15 minutes later, when her song “Black Parade” was announced as the Best R&B Performance. Looking surprised as she approached the stage, Beyonce said, “I’m so honored.” Overall, Beyonce has acquired 79 career nominations.
As the first performing act on stage, Harry Styles sang “Watermelon Sugar” for his first ever Grammy performance. He later won Best Pop Solo Performance for the that song. He wore black leather pants and an open leather jacket, with no shirt, showing off a few tattoos.
From an outside patio in Los Angeles, with the Staples Center as the back drop, host Trevor Noah kept the audience entertained between performances and acceptance speeches. The audience was made up of performers and nominees seated at small tables of 2 and 3. All wearing masks.
