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.

A few stand-out awards included… Lizzo winning Record of The Year, for “About Damn Time,” Bonnie Raitt got Song of the Year for “Just Like That.” Adele picked up Best Pop Solo Performance for “Easy On Me.” And Samara Joy won Best New Artist.

Um, and I just want to thank all the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open before me so I could be here tonight. Sophie, especially, my friend who passed away two years ago who told me this would happen and always believed in me. Thank you so much for your inspiration, Sophie. I adore you, and your inspiration will forever be in my music. Madonna for fighting for lgbtq rights. So much. I don’t think I could be here without Madonna. My mother. I grew up next to a highway in nowhere, Germany. And my mother believed me that I was a girl, and I wouldn’t be here without her. And her support. Applause And everyone who believed in me to this point, I love you so much. The recording academy, thank you. This is a huge moment for me. Sam, thank you, you’re a true angel and hero in my life.

I want to thank — applause That’s right. I want to thank my fans for trusting me with these words, you know? Yeah. You know, as artists, we all entertainers. Stupid. And we say things to provoke thoughts and feelings and emotions. So making this record — this is one of my toughest records to make. And it allowed me to do that and allowed me to share other people’s experiences. Going back and thinking back where I started with rap, how far I came, I would like to thank the culture for allowing me to evolve in order to make a song.

  • “Yeah. I’m extremely moved by this award. I want to say thank you to the recording academy and the black musi collective for this honor. I know everybody in here probably knows this already, but this is the 50th anniversary of hip-hop. Cheers and applause Make some noise for hip-hop. Yeah. And where would I be without it? Where would a lot of people in here be without hip hop to be honest? Hip-hop became a life line for me as a teenager growing up in Compton. And it started with a song called “The adventures of grandmaster flash on the wheels of steel.” Scratching and mixing on the turn tables had me hooked and became the entry point to a 40-year career of doing something that I really love. What up, AP? Yeah. And much of what I love is involved with collaboration, assembling a team of talented artists, engineers and musicians with gifts different from mine and who shine in ways that I don’t has been both inspiring and crucial to my success. And I’m extremely grateful to all of those who have comprised their team over the years. And I would not be here accepting this award without their contribution. Applause Yes. I’m also thankful to all the people who have been by my side, often through the difficult moments in my life that caused me to get to this point in my life, you know. Inspiration is one of my favorite words, and as a creative, it’s what I’m always in search of, and I hope to leave behind long after I’m gone. So, what I love about this award is that it uses my name to inspire the next generation of producers, artists, and entrepreneurs to reach for their greatness and demand that from everybody around you. Applause And never compromise your vision at all. Pursue quality over quantity. And remember that everything is important. That is one of my mottos, everything is important. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Cheers and applause” 2:16 OC…much appreciate it Cheers and applause

Thank you for honoring me to all the academy that surrounds me with so much support and appreciates the art of songwriting, as I do. I was so inspired for this song by the incredible story of the love and the grace and the generosity of someone that donates their beloved organs to help another person live. And this story was so simple and so beautiful for these times, and people have been responding to this song, partly because of how much I love, and we all love John Prine, and that was the inspiration for the music for this song, and telling a story from the inside. And I just — I don’t write a lot of songs, but I’m so proud that you appreciate this one and what this means for me and for the rest of the songwriters who I would not be up here tonight if it wasn’t for the art of the Grat soul-digging, hard-working people that put these songs and ideas to music.
