| LAST UPDATE 03/30/2021
It feels fitting that this year's Grammys fell during Women's History Month since the ladies of music totally ruled the night. From Beyoncé to Billie Eilish, here are the gals who won big time and broke records.
H.E.R.'s I Can't Breathe, which topped Billboard charts last summer, won Song of the Year. The Free singer was back in the limelight when her collaborative track with Robert Glasper and Meshell Ndegeocello, Better Than I Imagined, won Best R&B Song. Billie Eilish also went home with one award in each hand. The 19-year-old's Everything I Wanted was honored with Record of the Year. Eilish later received Best Song Written for Visual Media for her James Bond theme song, No Time to Die.
In her speech after winning Record of the Year, Billie gave a shout-out to one of the night's biggest winners: Megan Thee Stallion. "You deserve the world, I think about you constantly, I root for you always," she said. "Can we just cheer for Megan Thee Stallion, please?" Stallion swept the night, winning Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song for Savage featuring Beyoncé. Megan shared the mantra that inspires her work, and it's basically our life motto now: "What would Beyoncé do, but make it a little ratchet," she said.
Queen B broke the record for most Grammy wins by any singer when she won Best R&B Performance for Black Parade. "I wanted to uplift, encourage, and celebrate all the beautiful black kings and queens who have inspired me and the whole world," Beyonce said. It was an epic night for Bey's 9-year-old daughter, too. Blue Ivy won her first Grammy for Beyonce's Brown Skin Girl, which received Best Music Video.
Taylor Swift also made music history with Folklore as she became the first woman to win Album of the Year a whopping three times. In a rare public moment for their mostly private romance, Swift thanked her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, in her winning speech. "Joe, who is the first person that I play every single song that I write, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine," she said. Tay's beau wrote songs for Folklore under the pseudonym William Bowery - talk about relationship goals!
Dua Lipa, who was nominated in six categories, won Best Pop Vocal Album for Future Nostalgia and rocked the Grammy stage with an epic performance of Levitating and Don't Start Now. Power duo Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande won Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for Rain on Me. And, of course, the night was filled with some huge fashion moments. Check them out here.
