Beyonce, who missed one of her awards, because she was stuck in traffic, made history as she picked up her 32nd career Grammy trophy and became the event’s most decorated artist ever. To a standing ovation, she said, “I’m trying not to get too emotional.” She picked up six out of nine of her evenings nominations, including for Best R&B Album for “Cuff It.”
Beyoncé surpassed Quincy Jones earlier in the night with her 29th win. And with her 32nd, she eclipsed conductor Georg Solti.
The coveted Album of the Year went to Harry Styles for Harry’s House. A grandma fan got to hand him the award, in return, he gave her a huge hug. He said, “This doesn’t happen to people like me very often. This is so, so nice.” He also won for Best Pop Vocal Album.
