The 66th Annual Grammy Awards took place on Sunday February 4, at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles with Trevor Noah as the show’s host. 

The show had a lot of firsts such as legendary singer Joni Mitchell performing on the Grammy stage for the first time at the age of 80. It also had a lot of surprises including the appearance of Celine Dion amid her ongoing health battles. We can’t forget about the amazing performances and tributes that took place either. 

Fantasia Barrino Pays Tribute To Tina Turner

During last night’s tribute to the legends that we lost, Stevie Wonder opened the segment with a tribute to the late Tony Bennett and performed a beautiful rendition of “For Once In My Life.” Soon after, Annie Lennox would do her part and perform Sinéad O’Connor’s hit “Nothing Compares To You.” Oprah Winfrey would take the stage to tell a story about her late friend, Tina Turner, before introducing Fantasia to perform one of Turner’s classic “Proud Mary.” 

Barrino was dressed in all gold as well as her background dancers and the other members of the band. Her performance was definitely one to remember. 

Burna Boy Brings Afrobeats To The Grammys For The First Time.

Afrobeats artist Burna Boy brought a taste of his culture to the Grammy Stage last night. The Nigerian singer performed a mashup of his songs “On Form”, “City Boys,” and “Sittin on Top of the World,” which he performed with Brandy and 21 Savage. 

Victoria Monèt, Coco Jones, Tyla & SZA All Won Grammys

There’s no doubt that the Grammys was for women. Singers Coco Jones, Tyla, and Victoria Monèt all won their first Grammys. Coco Jones took home the award for Best R&B Performance for her single “ICU”, Tyla won the award for Best African Music Performance. Victoria Monèt took home the Grammy for Best New Artist and shared that this win comes after a 15-year journey for her since moving to Los Angeles in 2009. 

SZA also won big. The singer who had the most nominations of the night, took home three awards for Best Progressive R&B Album for SOS, Best R&B Song for “Snooze” and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Ghost in the Machine.”

Jay-Z Calls Out The Grammys

During his acceptance speech after receiving the Dr.Dre Global Impact Award, Jay-Z decided to use that moment to criticize the Grammys in hope that they get it right one day. He went on to say that his wife, Beyoncè, has the most Grammy Wins ever but has yet to win Album of the year and told them to “make it make sense.” Watch his entire speech below.
