Grammy Awards 2021 : List of winners – Beyoncé wins 28 Grammys

One of the most famous events for the music industry, the Grammy awards started off with a smack. Trevor Noah hosted this music’s biggest night in Los Angeles. He jested around saying that it would be the largest outdoor event of 2021. He also added: “I know that you haven’t been able to go to a concert in a long time — neither have I. So tonight we’re bringing the concert to you,”.
In the 63rd edition of the Grammys, the event had no live audience, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Though the popular artists graced the red carpet. The ceremony was held outside with nominees sitting socially distant. Also, follow all the coronavirus protocols, and norms.
This Grammys became historic for Beyonce as she became the female artist with the most trophies. She surpassed the record held by singer Alison Krauss by winning 28 Grammys. The 28th win was for Best R&B Performance for Black Parade. Beyonce won her first trophy of the day for Best Music Video, Blue Ivy. She shared this with her eldest daughter, who was in the clip for “Brown Skin Girl.”
