Beyonce, Harry Styles win big at 65th Annual Grammy Awards

Show was full of big moments

Full of groundbreaking performances and history-making wins, the 65th Annual Grammy Awards was one of the biggest nights in music history. Beyonce, Harry Styles Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde were among the history-making artists at Sunday’s celebrated show.

Beyonce is now the most decorated Grammy artist in history. Her win for Best Dance/Electronic Album for Renaissance puts her Grammy total at 33, the most of all time. She surpasses classical conductor George Solti who previously held the most trophies with 31. Queen Bey’s record breaking 32nd trophy was awarded early in the night before the pop star was even in the building. Nile Rodgers accepted on her behalf to tell the story of “Cuff It.” However, Beyonce was able to accept her record-setting Grammy win for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for Renaissance.

Harry Styles closed out an epic night at the 2023 Grammys with winning Album of the Year for Harry’s House, his biggest career win to date. One of Styles’ biggest fans, a 78-year-old woman named Reina from Sudbury, Ontario, presented the award that resulted in a hug upon arriving on stage and fist bump after his closing remarks.

Taylor Swift took home the trophy for Best Music Video for “All Too Well: The Short Film.” She became the first artist to win the category with a sole directing credit for their own music video. Video co-producer Saul Germaine accepted on her behalf.

Dr. Dre was the recipient of the inaugural Dr. Dre Impact Award for his multitude of achievements through his multi-decade career.

Several awards were handed out during the Grammy Premiere Ceremony ahead of the show. Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde won their first-ever Grammys for their record breaking duet, “Never Wanted To Be That Girl.” They were the first women to win the award in the Best Country Duo or Group Performance category.
