Grammys could make history with Beyoncé, Bad Bunny wins
LOS ANGELES – Will Beyoncé emerge from that Grammy Awards as the most decorated artist of all time?
That’s one of the main storylines going into Sunday’s ceremony, where the superstar is the one leading candidate And needs four wins to make history.
Several of music’s biggest names, including Beyoncé, are in the Running for the highest awards of the evening – Harry Styles, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, ABBA and Lizzo are all among the nominees for Album of the Year. Adele joins them in the Record of the Year competition.
Host is Trevor Noah The show will be broadcast live from the Crypto.com Arena in downtown Los Angeles and begins at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on CBS and Paramount+. The show includes performances from Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Sam Smith, Lizzo as well special musical honors to the late musicians Takeoff, Loretta Lynn and Christine McVie.
But with 91 Grammy categories, most of the awards come during the Recording Academy livestream premiere party. During this show, Beyoncé overtook Hungarian-British composer Georg Solti as the artist with the most Grammys. (Solti won his record-breaking 31st Grammy in 1997.)
There could be many more firsts: if Bad Bunny wins Album of the Year for “Un Verano Sin Ti,” it would be the first time a Spanish-language album has won top honors. Taylor Swift, whose latest album Midnights didn’t qualify for this year’s Grammys, won her trophy for first song of the year for All Too Well. An Adele win for Song of the Year for her track “Easy on Me” would make her the most decorated artist in the category with three wins, the others coming for her mega hits “Hello” and “Rolling in the Deep”.
This year’s Grammys have too introduced several new categories, including one for video game music composition. And several non-musicians, like actress Viola Davis and Amanda Gorman, took home trophies. A Davis win in the Best Audiobook, Narration, and Storytelling Recording category would make her an EGOT — an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award-winning artist.
This year’s show marks a return to Los Angeles after initially being delayed by the pandemic forced the Grammys to move to Las Vegas last year. Noah also hosted the ceremony that saw Take Jon Batiste home with you album of the year
