Beyoncé set a new record for most Grammy wins of all time Monday(Manila time) with her 32nd award.
The milestone came with the announcement of the award for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for Renaissance. It was her fourth win of the night.
Beyoncé thanked her family for loving and pushing her, as well as the queer community “for your love and for inventing the genre.”
She also won the second award of the night, for Best R&B Song for “CUFF IT,” as well as two preshow awards for Best Traditional R&B Performance for her song “Plastic Off the Sofa” and Best Dance/Electric Recording for “Break My Soul.” She wasn’t able to accept the second award in person because she was delayed by traffic.
Beyoncé led the night’s nods with nine.
Harry Styles off the 65th annual Grammy Awards, winning the first award of the night.
Accepting the statuette for Best Pop Vocal Album for Harry’s House, Styles called working on the album the “greatest joy I could’ve asked for.”
“This album, from start to finish, has been the greatest experience of my life,” Styles said.
He also won the biggest award of the night, Best Album for Harry’s House.
“On nights like tonight it’s obviously so important for us to remember that there’s no such thing as ‘best’ in music,” Styles said in accepting the award. “I don’t think any of us sit in the studio thinking what is going to get us one of these.”
Styles later performed his hit “As It Was,” atop a spinning stage similar to the one in the music video for the song. “As It Was” was also nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
Fellow Brit Adele won Best Pop Solo Performance for her song “Easy On Me.” She dedicated the award to her son, Angelo. The win extends her record for most wins in the category at four.
Singer Lizzo won Record of the Year for “About Damn Time.” She dedicated the honor to Prince, saying she vowed to make positive music after he died in 2016.
