With Midnights, Swift became the only artist in Grammy history to win the album of the year four times. Lana Del Rey, another nominee, joined her onstage. She said, “I would love to tell you this is the happiest moment of my life but I feel this happy when I’ve finished a song.” And she meant it. “Continue doing this is all I want to do.”
Celine Dion, who had lately halted performing due to stiff person syndrome, presented the award for album of the year. A standing ovation was bestowed upon her. “I truly mean it when I say that I’m happy to be here,” she declared.

The album Flowers was Cyrus’s first Grammy, and she took home two awards: record of the year and best pop solo performance. She spoke about how her life had been “beautiful yesterday” and how she hoped nothing would change. “I don’t think I’ve forgotten anyone but I might have forgotten underwear!” she whispered in the last breath.

greatest music created for visual media and greatest song of the year went to Eilish’s What Was I Made For? from Barbie. She exclaimed, “Damn, that’s stupid guys!” as she delivered her speech. It was an unbelievable roster of remarkable individuals… I’m just floored. It followed in the footsteps of Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On as the first movie soundtrack to take home the trophy. The best visual media collection soundtrack also went to Barbie.

Trevor Noah dubbed it “a year to remember,” as SZA took home three awards out of nine nominations. During her performance of a medley of her hits, she paid tribute to the source of Kill Bill’s inspiration with an exciting sequence. During her heartfelt acceptance speech for best R&B song, she stated, “I came really, really far and I can’t believe this is happening.” Her next remark was a joke: “I’m not an attractive crier.”

In addition to winning best R&B album, Victoria Monét was named best new artist. I simply want to express to everyone who has a dream that they should see this as a model,” she stated.

Handcuffed by officials from the Los Angeles Police Department, Killer Mike was led out of the arena after winning three Grammys, one of which was for best rap album during the pre-televised portion of the evening. The Hollywood Reporter states that it was for an unspecified misdemeanor charge from that evening. “Being dishonest about your age or what you’re doing is the only thing that limits your age,” Mike stated backstage before he was apprehended.”Okay, this is my 13th Grammy, which is my lucky number. I don’t know if I’ve ever told you that,” she quipped earlier in the night while accepting best pop vocal album. Additionally, Swift took advantage of the occasion to reveal that her eleventh studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, would be released on April 19th.

The Dr. Dre global impact award went to Jay-Z this year in recognition of his career and personal accomplishments. The Grammys, he said, have a checkered past when it comes to Black musicians. He emphasized that they wanted everyone to do it correctly. “Obviously it’s subjective because it’s music,” he continued, slamming the recording academy while defending Beyoncé. “I don’t want to shame this young woman, but she has more Grammys than anyone else, and she’s never won album of the year,” he added. That is ineffective even according to your own standards. Countless Grammys—that’s impressive. Record of the year went to Never. This is not going to work.

Dua Lipa sang a medley while a group of partially clothed men danced around her to start off the Los Angeles event. Noah praised her as “the best performers of a generation” and said that the Grammys are “the only concert that starts on time.”. Meryl Streep, who was seated next to her son-in-law and candidate Mark Ronson, and Swift both arrived late, interrupting his opening statement.

After not performing publicly since 2009, Tracy Chapman made a triumphant return in 2023 with the help of Luke Combs, who had previously covered her hit Fast Car. “Before I ever understood the concept of a favorite song, it was my favorite,” he remarked. This was “such a cool, full-circle moment,” he thought. Chris Stapleton won best country solo performance, and he came up short.

At the age of 80, Joni Mitchell made history by performing at the Grammys for the very first time. Among “the most influential and emotionally generous creators in human history,” Brandi Carlile proclaimed in her introduction. The prize for best folk album went to Mitchell as well.
A one-of-a-kind performance by U2, whom Noah deemed “one of the most groundbreaking and beloved bands of all time,” took place from the Sphere in Las Vegas.

Stevie Wonder presided over a memorial service honoring Tony Bennett, whom he described as “someone I admired for so long” during his time working on the For Once in My Life album. He complimented Bennett on “his love for art, his love for peace, his love for unity and his love for civil rights” and expressed his admiration for Bennett. “I will miss you forever,” he continued. Your love knows no bounds. Annie Lennox, Jon Batiste, and Fantasia Barrino performed during the lengthy In Memoriam segment, which also paid tribute to Sinead O’Connor, Clarence Avant, Wayne Kramer, and Burt Bacharach. When asked about her friend Tina Turner, Oprah Winfrey said, “She was a special kind of role model.”

“Artists for ceasefire, peace in the world.” Lennox declared following her performance. Boygenius felt the same way; they even donned pins on their clothes that demanded an end to the fighting. The group took home three trophies, one of which was for best rock song.

Defeating Bebe Rexha and fellow Australian Troye Sivan, Kylie Minogue won her second Grammy for best pop dance recording with Padam Padam. In a video post to Instagram, the singer enthusiastically replied.

Nighttime female winners also included Karol G for best urban music album, Laufey for best traditional pop vocal album, Coco Jones for best R&B performance, and Lainey Wilson for best country album..
