    Another Grammy Awards ceremony is behind us, and it was as spectacular as it gets. Beyoncé became the most-awarded artist in the show’s history with a total of 32 accolades, while Harry Styles and Lizzo won album and record of the year, respectively.

    It was a big night for Beyoncé, who was nominated in nine categories this year, and managed to walk away with four awards: best dance/electronic recording (“Break My Soul”), best dance/electronic album (Renaissance), best traditional R&B performance (“Plastic Off the Sofa”) and best R&B song (“Cuff It”).

    The Big Four categories brought a few surprises our away, but Harry Styles’ triumph wasn’t so difficult to predict. He won album of the year with Harry’s House, while Lizzo picked up the trophy for the record of the year with “About Damn Time”.

    As for the shockers, Bonnie Raitt defeated the likes of Lizzo, Styles, and Taylor Swift to win song of the year with “Just Like That”. It was also pretty surprising to see Samara Joy beat the likes of Måneskin, Latto, and Anitta to be named the best new artist.

    The 65th Annual Grammy Awards took place on February 5, and the list of major winners also included Maverick City Music with four wins, and Brandi Carlile, Bonnie Raitt, Kirk Franklin, and Kendrick Lamar with three each.
