Music is all we need in togetherness and in solitude. And here is the Music’s biggest night Grammys’ 63rd edition. It began with Megan Thee Stallion winning three trophies; Best New Artist Award, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for Savage.
‘I Can’t Breathe’ by H.E.R won one of the three big awards- Song of the Year. Political commentator and the television host Trevor Noah opened music’s biggest night from Los Angeles. The south African comedian kicked off the event joking that it would be the largest outdoor event of 2021 since the storming of the US Capitol in January. “I know that you haven’t been able to go to a concert in a long time – neither have I. So tonight we’re bringing the concert to you,” he said.
In terms of nominations, Beyonce lead the pack with nine, followed by Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and rapper Roddy Ricch, all with six. John Prine, the legend who died last year at the age of 73, received awards for Best Roots Performance and Best Roots Song from the Recording Academy.
