2021 Grammy Awards: Full Winners List

The 2021 Grammy Awards kicked off with a night full of performances!

Many of the evening’s awards were given out ahead of Sunday night’s music-filled show amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Trevor Noah hosted the 63rd Grammy Awards which are being held outside with nominees sitting at socially distant tables and following coronavirus restrictions.

Prior to the show, it was announced that Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter won her first-ever Grammy for her collaboration on her famous mama’s “Brown Skin Girl” music video. Blue earned the prestigious award for “Best Music Video” alongside Beyoncé, fellow collaborator Wizkid, and the video’s director Jenn Nkiru.

Megan Thee Stallion won the first in-person award of the night for Best New Artist. The “Body” rapper beat out an impressive group of breakout musicians, including Doja Cat, Phoebe Bridgers and Noah Cyrus. Megan looked shocked as her name was called, and she verged on tears as she took the stage to give her acceptance speech.

Beyoncé won her 28th Grammy Award on Sunday night and became the most award-winning female artist in the award show’s 63-year history.  The record was previously held by Alison Krauss who had 27 Grammy award wins.

Taylor Swift took home the Grammy for Best Album for her album “Folklore” and after thanking her collaborators, she let out a super sweet reveal about who gives the seal of approval on her work – Joe.

“Joe, who is the first person that I play every single song I write…I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine.”
