Beyonce Makes History By Winning 28th Grammy, Most Ever By Any Female Artist
Well, the Grammys may indeed have a secret committee that votes on all the top awards. And that committee apparently doesn’t like The Weeknd, but they do love them some Beyonce.
On Sunday night at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, Beyonce made history by winning her 28th Grammy.
She had nine nominations on the night, and she won for Best R&B Performance, and Best Rap Performance with Megan Thee Stallion. By winning her 28th award, she moved past the record perviously set by Alison Krauss.
As an artist I believe it’s my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect time and it’s been such a difficult time. I have been working my whole life … This is such a magical night.
Her husband, Jay-Z, won his 23rd Grammy last night, so between them, they have over 50 Grammys. No big deal, right?
Another artist who made history last night? Megan Thee Stallion. She became the first female rapper to win best rap song. She’s also only the fifth rap-based act to take home the award for best new artist.
Taylor Swift won the biggest award of the night, Album of the Year. It was her third time winning the award. She’s the first female artist to win album of the year three times. Billie Eilish picked up the award for record of the year, but she told everyone that Megan Thee Stallion deserved it more.
The theme of the night? Ladies. It was a powerful night for women in the music industry, as they dominated most categories.
Dua Lipa won best pop vocal album, and she had this to say…
I feel like there’s been a lot of female empowerment and lots of women winning awards tonight. And so it’s been absolutely amazing to just be alongside all that, to feel that energy.
