For music lovers, the night of the annual Grammy Awards is either a huge success or a sad letdown. 

The 63rd annual Grammy Awards took place on Sunday, outdoors and with no audience aside from the entertainers.

Tables were placed six feet apart with two chairs per table. All celebrities wore masks unless they gave speeches or announced. 

Most notably, history was made by Beyonce, as she took home four Grammys. That makes 28 Grammys total that Beyonce has won, which makes her the woman with the most Grammy wins in history. Beyonce surpassed Alison Krauss, who originally held the record at 27 Grammys total. 

The show opened with Harry Styles, which was the best decision of the night. He performed his song “Watermelon Sugar,” for which he later won a Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance. 

Quickly following, young singer Billie Eilish performed her Grammy nominated song, “Everything I Wanted.” This performance was beautiful and it was amazing to see all of the artists cheering each other on. She later went on to win Record of the year, which was the best decision for that category. The song is too raw and meaningful to receive anything less. 

Dernst Emile II and Tiara Thomas took home the Grammy for Song of the Year with their song “I Can’t Breathe.” This song is a powerful anthem for equality, specifically targeting the memory of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement. 

The highly anticipated Album of the Year award went to Taylor Swift for her eighth studio album, Folklore. For all Swift fans, this was a great moment.

The award for best new artist went to female rapper Megan Thee Stallion. Other nominees in this category included Phoebe Bridgers, Noah Cyrus, and Doja Cat. 

While some people referred to this year’s awards as “the Scammys,” the decisions made were not as bad as those from previous years, and most of the winners were well deserved.
