WINNERS! Beyoncé, Taylor Swift set new records on historic Grammy night

It was a huge night for women at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday, with female artists sharing the love across the “Big Four” categories (Album, Record, and Song of the Year, plus Best New Artist), and Beyoncé and Taylor Swift setting new records and making Grammy herstory.

This year’s Best New Artist winner, Megan Thee Stallion, and Beyoncé hit a major milestone before the televised awards even commenced, during the pre-show Premiere Ceremony, when they became the first all-female collaboration to win Best Rap Performance for their mega-hit “Savage.” Later, when “Savage” also won Best Rap Song midway through the CBS telecast, host Trevor Noah declared, “Before you leave the stage, we want everybody to know that right now Grammy history has been made!”

Noah was understandably excited that Beyoncé had just tied Alison Krauss’s Grammy record, with 27 wins. But Noah spoke too soon, because a 28th Grammy loomed in Queen B’s very near future — when subsequent presenter Jimmy Jam announced that her political solo song “Black Parade” had won for Best R&B Performance. And with that, Beyoncé set a new record for the most Grammy wins ever by a female artist — and by any singer, male or female.

“Oh my God, I am so honored, I’m so excited,” Beyoncé gushed as she returned to the podium. “Thank you. 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, celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world. This is so overwhelming. I have been working my whole life, since nine years old. And I can’t believe this happened. It’s such a magical night, thank you so much. I know my daughter is watching. … Blue, congratulations, you won a Grammy tonight.”
