Beyonce’s historic win, Taylor Swift’s comeback that’s stronger than a ’90s trend, and some other event highlights got fans non-stop talking about the recently concluded Grammy Awards 2021.
COVID-19 might have negatively affected almost every aspect of our life, but not the worldwide celebration of music and the hard-working, talented individuals who continuously give us new masterpieces to listen to. In case you missed it, here are the best and most memorable moments in Grammy Awards 2021.
Dua Lipa Winning Best Pop Vocal Album
Dua Lipa stole the night with her live performance of “Don’t Start Now.” The 25-year-old also reached another career milestone when she won the Best Pop Album category for her album “Levitate,” beating Lady Gaga’s Chromatica, Justin Bieber’s Changes, TSwift’s Folklore, and Harry Style’s Fine Line.
Queen B’s Historic Win
Beyonce just made history when she scored her 28th Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance for her 2020 song “Black Parade.” This award sets the record for most GRAMMY’s won by any artist.
“I am so honored, I am so excited. Thank you guys,” a teary-eyed Beyoncé said during her acceptance speech. “As an artist, I believe it’s my job, and all of our jobs to reflect the times, and it’s been such a difficult time. So I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all of the beautiful black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world.”
Taylor Swift’s Folklore Fiesta
As if the first two are not enough to make you think that the 63rd Grammy Awards was turning out to be for our most beloved female artists of this generation, Taylor Swift also took home the Album of the Year award for her ‘Folklore’ album. She also went back to the GRAMMY stage after five years, performing three of the fan favorites in her award-winning latest album. Set in an enchanted forest, the singer-songwriter took the audience to a magical place as she serenaded them with ‘August,’ ‘Cardigan,’ and ‘Willow.’
Harry Styles’ First GRAMMY
Chalking up his first-ever GRAMMY is One-Direction-heartthrob-turned-soloist Harry Styles, who won Best Pop Solo Performance for his smash single ‘Watermelon Sugar.’ The British superstar bested his fellow nominees Justin Bieber (“Yummy”), Billie Eilish (“Everything I Wanted”), Doja Cat (“Say So”), Dua Lipa (“Don’t Start Now”), and Taylor Swift (“cardigan”).
Harry Styles also set the stage ablaze when he kicked off the ceremony with a collaborative live performance with Devonté Hynes.
BTS Shining Through the GRAMMY Ceiling
And last but definitely not the least, South Korean boy group BTS gave one of the best performances of the night. Although they, unfortunately, did not win the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Grammy award for which they were nomitated, the group’s energetic and vibrant live performance of ‘Dynamite’ serves as one of the major highlights of the prestigious event.
Also, for those of you who are not in the know, this performance is another historical moment in music history, as it was the first time a Kpop act got to perform their own song at the GRAMMY stage.
