It was Beyoncé’s Grammy show, and we just lived it: not only leading the pack with the most Grammy wins at four, the singer also became the female artist with the most Grammys ever with her 28th win (plus one for daughter Blue Ivy Carter). In other, non-Beyoncé news, Taylor Swift won Album of the Year and the Recording Academy awarded their darling Billie Eilish with the Record of the Year award. The Black Lives Matter movement was honored with a performance by Lil Baby and a film about Beyoncé’s “Black Parade,” and Megan Thee Stallion was left speechless by her Best New Artist win.
For performances, the Recording Academy served us DaBaby with some violins and wannabe Judge Judys, a seductive song from Silk Sonic and Mickey Guyton’s emotional first Grammys performance. Dua Lipa debuted new choreography, Taylor Swift brought us a woodsy folklore medley and Harry Styles also shook his butt in a feather boa. Megan Thee Stallion proved she (still) is that bitch with a dream performance of “Savage (Remix)” and a clean version of “WAP.”
