It’s official: Beyoncé is now the most decorated artist in Grammy Awards history. After winning big at the 65th annual ceremony, Queen Bey has secured her place at the top with 32 awards and counting. She tied the record set by the late Hungarian-British conductor Georg Solti early in the night, and then broke it when she won Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for “Renaissance.”
The singer entered Sunday’s ceremony as the leading nominee including album, song and record of the year. She inched closer to gaining the title with two wins during the early Grammys ceremony. Before Sunday’s ceremony, Beyoncé and Quincy Jones were tied with 28 Grammy wins. She won for best dance-electronic music recording category for “Break My Soul,” traditional R&B performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa” and R&B song for “Cuff It,” which was written by several writers including Beyonce, The-Dream, Nile Rodgers, Raphael Saadiq.
But it wasn’t just Beyoncé making history at the Grammys. Viola Davis achieved the status of EGOT — a term for those who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony — after her win for best audio book, narration and storytelling recording. If Bad Bunny wins album of the year for “Un Verano Sin Ti,” it would be the first time a Spanish-language album has taken home the top honor. Taylor Swift, whose latest album “Midnights” wasn’t eligible for this year’s Grammys, could win her first song of the year trophy for “All Too Well.” An Adele win for song of the year for her track “Easy on Me” would make her the most decorated artist in the category with three wins.
At the 65th annual Grammy Awards, history was made and records were broken. Queen Bey is now the most decorated artist in the show’s history, and the night was filled with other firsts.
