Women on Top
Women singers including Beyonce and Taylor Swift reached new career heights during a ceremony on Sunday. The most prestigious awards went to four women, including Taylor Swift, who became the first performer to win the award for best album of the year three times. At the time, Beyonce, who received her 28th gramophone statuette, became the most acclaimed woman in Grammy history. Singer H.E.R. won the award for best song, and Billie Eilish won the award for best record of the year but told the audience that the award was earned by Best New Artist recognized Megan Thee Stallion.

This year, four different women singers received the main statuettes for the first time. Dua Lipa said she thinks there was a lot of empowerment for women tonight, a lot of women won awards. It was so awesome just to be next to all that, to feel that energy. Dua Lipa won the prize for best pop vocal album. Taylor Swift won the top prize for an album Folklore unexpectedly released during the quarantine. Previously, her albums called Fearless and 1989 were awarded as the best albums of the year.
Beyonce, who received 24 Grammy Awards during her career, won four more statuettes on Sunday: for Best Rhythm Blues Song Performance (Black Parade), Best Video (Brown Skin Girl), Best Rap Song Performance, and Best Rap Song (Savage) performed with Megan Thee Stallion. “As an artist, I think my job and that of all of us is to depict times, and it is a very difficult task,” Beyonce said on stage when Black Parade, released in the United States on Slave Liberation Day, was declared the best work of rhythm blues.
Ceremony and Curiosities
The Grammy Music Awards ceremony, which is usually very impressive, was simpler this year than any other major awards ceremony during the pandemic. In keeping with the constraints of the coronavirus era, which hit the music industry hard, everything was done online, combining “live” and pre-recorded performances. The postponed 63rd Grammy Ceremony took a place a year after the closure of large and small halls in the United States following the spread of a new virus.
During the ceremony, the award also went to Blue Ivy Carter, the 9-year-old daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z. She became the second youngest winner of this statue in history. The first award was given to Blue Ivy Carter for her collaboration in creating the best video of the year for the song Brown Skin Girl. Blue Ivy was one of the authors of the lyrics and worked well along with fer famous mother.
