Awards season is in full swing and the next stop is the biggest night in music. The Grammys are always an exciting one, with plenty of fun fashion moments and incredibly performances. Despite a scaled down ceremony, plenty of music’s biggest stars came out and made it a night to remember. Here are all of our favorite moments.
When it comes to fashion, tonight was all about the ladies. Some of music’s biggest female stars had some lovely looks for the socially distanced carpet.
Although not at the ceremony, R&B duo Chloe X Halle were pictured in custom Louis Vuitton looks. Both dresses complimented each other well while still showcasing each girl’s personal style.
Another great look came from H.E.R, wearing a deep purple Dundas World velvet robe. Complete with a statement necklace and wide, wide, legged pants the singer looked chic and cool.
Megan Thee Stallion gave off the vibes of old Hollywood glamour in a bright orange Dolce & Gabanna gown with a high slit and a statement diamond necklace to tie the look together. Popstar Lizzo also went for a very glam look with a mint green satin dress from Balmain.
Billie Eilish, always a fashion icon, wore an oversized matching Gucci set. She was head to toe in the crazy pattern, with gloves, a mask, and a bucket hat to accessorize.
One of the best looks of the night comes from Dua Lipa in Versace. The chain metal gown was absolutely dazzling, giving off plenty of shine with a butterfly across the bodice.
The performances are without a doubt the selling point of the Grammys, and there were plenty to love from tonight’s ceremony. The show at times felt like a concert rather than an awards show, with multiple instances with artists performing back to back.
Harry Styles opened the show with his hit Watermelon Sugar, followed immediately by BIllie Eilish and HAIM. All 3 artists had a very different vibe which was a good way to set the tone for a night with a wide array of performers.
A few other standouts from the night were DaBaby and Dua Lipa. DaBaby performed Record of the Year nominated Rockstar first. With a violin and choir accompanying him he gave a fresh take on the hit song and didn’t miss a beat. Not long after, Dua took the stage and gave an electrifying performance complete with dance breaks, and three outfit changes.
Bruno Mars also made his return to the Grammys stage with Anderson .Paak as Silk Sonic, sining their new single Leave the Door Open. Complete with killer choreography and fun editing, it was one of the most vocally impressive performances of the night.
Pop superstar Taylor Swift joined the stacked list of performers with a medley of songs from folklore. Starting out laying on a mossy roof in a dreamy landscape, Swift finished the performance in front of a quaint cabin alongside collaborators Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner. The performance perfectly capture the escapism and idyllic nature of the folklore era.
Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B also did not disappoint. Megan started out with Savage with a glam 20s inspired outfit and backdrop. Cardi came in after, dancing on a stage with vibrant graphics all around her while she performed her new song Up. They wrapped up the performance with the viral hit WAP, accompanied by a gigantic stiletto and bed on stage.
With this particular ceremony being more performance heavy, there weren’t many awards given out on air. Those that were lucky enough to receive an award during the broadcast did get their recognition on a makeshift stage outside the Staples Center
The first award of the night went to Megan Thee Stallion for Best New Artist. Meg enjoyed her first ever Grammy win and walked away with multiple awards when all was said and done, including Best Rap Song for Savage.
Another first came for Harry Styles who beat out stars like Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift for Best Pop Solo Performance.
Song of the Year went to H.E.R for I Can’t Breathe, while Billie Eilish won Record of the Year with Everything I wanted. The other big award of the night, Album of the Year went to Taylor Swift’s folklore.
Finally, Beyoncé continued her reign with multiple awards, including Best R&B Performance. This particular Grammy actually made history, with Beyoncé breaking the record for most Grammys by a single artist.
