Beyoncé breaks the record for most Grammy wins – Chicago Tribune newstrendslive

Did it happen? It happened, Beyoncé became the most Grammy-awarded music artist of all time at the 65th annual Grammy Awards, presented in a ceremony Sunday night at the Arena in Los Angeles.

Before the telecast even began on CBS and streaming on Paramount+, Beyoncé had received two — all but about a dozen of the 2023 awards were handed out by the Recording Academy of the United States at a preshow event. Beyoncé went into the night as the top nominee, with nine, almost all from her 2002 album “Renaissance” and ahead of Kendrick Lamar with eight.

Early in the ceremony, before she had even arrived, she won a third for best R&B song. Then she won a fourth, her 32nd Grammy, for best dance/electronic music album for “Renaissance.” The former record holder was conductor Georg Solti, who received 31 in his career, according to the Recording Academy. Solti was a long-serving music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

There are still more big awards to come.

But first Bad Bunny kicked things off with a medley that brought the roof down and third-time host Trevor Noah delivered a roving opening monologue that introduced some of the most famous faces at the front of the house.

“My job is to be your eyes, your ears, I’ll be floating around this room — think of me like a Chinese spy balloon,” he said, giving shout-outs to Harry Styles, Lizzo and Taylor Swift.

Stevie Wonder sang three classic hits during the performance-heavy telecast, including “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” accompanied by the R&B group WanMor (brothers whose father is Wanya Morris of Boyz II Men).

Set designers went all out for Sam Smith and Kim Petras, singing their pop duo performance winner “Unholy” in a devilishly red and fire-filled stage. Earlier, Styles and Lizzo also had notable performances, Styles dressed in silver tinsel and singing “As It Was,” the lead single from his third LP, “Harry’s House,” which won for pop vocal album.

An extended in memoriam segment honored musicians who died in the past year, including country star Loretta Lynn — Kacey Musgraves sang “Coal Miner’s Daughter — as well as Fleetwood Mac songwriter Christine McVie and the 28-year-old rapper Takeoff, the youngest member of the hip hop trio Migos.

Viola Davis joined the rarefied EGOT club in preshow awards Sunday, winning a Grammy for an audiobook of her memoir “Finding Me.” Davis has now won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.

Wilco’s “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (20th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition)” picked up two awards, including for best historical album. Best engineered classical album went to “Bates: Philharmonia Fantastique — The Making of the Orchestra,” featuring the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
