The 62nd Grammys took place last week to recognize artists, singers, and musicians from around the world. If you missed the show, here are some highlights:
Billie Eilish had an amazing night.
She won a total of five Grammys, four of which are known as the Big Four: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, and Record of the Year. She is the first woman and only the second person ever to sweep the awards. The first time all four awards were won by a single artist was in 1981 by Christopher Cross.
It was a family affair!
Finneas O’Connell, Bille Eilish’s older brother, shared the award for Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year with his sister. He separately won for Best Producer, non-classical, as well as Best Engineered Album, non-classical.
Lizzo had the most!
At eight nominations, Lizzo was the artist to beat. She went home with three wins for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts,” Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best Urban Contemporary Album.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama Won!
Former First Lady Michelle Obama can also add Grammy winner to her resume. Obama won for Best Spoken Word Album for her book Becoming.
A Grammy Debut
BTS made their debut at the Grammys when they performed “Old Town Road” with Little Nas X.
Artists paid tribute to and honored basketball star Kobe Bryant who tragically died earlier that day from a helicopter crash, and to rapper Nipsey Hussle who was murdered outside of his clothing store earlier last year.
