On March 14th, 2021, the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards show was held socially distanced, as well as virtually for the first time ever. With over a three-hour show and 83 categories to go through, this year’s GRAMMY Awards was an event to remember.

Kicking off the show was a tribute to Marvin Gaye’s 50th anniversary of his song “Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology)”.

The performance included over 15 artists coming together to celebrate the Grammy Hall of Fame song. The musical event also had performances done by some well-known artists like Cardi B, Harry Styles, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and many more. 

The first category presented was the classic “Record of the Year” award with famous nineteen-year-old artist, Billie Eilish taking the win for her album, Everything I Wanted.

Billie Eilish is most famous for specific songs such as Bad Guy, When The Party’s Over, and Ocean Eyes, just to name a few. Later in the night she also won for “Song Written for Visual Media” for the newest James Bond film, No Time To Die, ending her night with a total of 7 GRAMMY wins. Again, she is only nineteen. 

The next award for “Album of the Year” ended up going to the iconic love song songwriter Taylor Swift for one of her newest albums, Folklore. That album includes some killer songs such as cardigan, the 1, and exile.

Taylor Swift has been nominated for the GRAMMYs for multiple years now and has won quite a few awards. Within the past 11 years, Swift has managed to obtain over 30 nominations and 10 wins. 

Later on in the evening, there was an amazing performance by heartthrob Harry Styles with his hit song Watermelon Sugar. It was that exact same song that got him his very first GRAMMY for “Best Pop Solo Performance”. Styles just keeps proving to the world that he is more than Harry from One Direction. 

Some other winners that night include Megan Thee Stallion for “Best New Artist”, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” with the song Rain On Me, Dua Lipa with her album Future Nostalgia winning “Best Pop Vocal Album”, and old-timey Fiona Apple with her new song Shameika winning “Best Rock Performance”. 

To finish it off, they had the Queen B herself, Beyoncé, take home 4 awards including Best Music Video, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best R&B Performance. Beyoncé ended up breaking a record for most won GRAMMYs with 25 wins!
