From James Corden rapping to Twenty One Pilots accepting their award in their underwear, this years 59th Grammy Awards was one to remember.
First off, it’s safe to say that Adele swept the floor, winning 5 Grammys including Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Album of the Year. The competition was stiff, being up against Beyoncé in 4 of the categories. While Beyoncé was beat out, Adele recognized and praised the artist for the impact her album had, at one point breaking her Grammy for Album of the Year in half, later giving a piece to Beyoncé. Beyoncé, taking home two Grammys herself, emotionally applauded the British artist for her appreciation

Another noticeable winner includes Chance the Rapper gaining 3 awards for Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Performance. This is monumental for the music industry. Chance is the first artist to win a Grammy without selling physical copies of his music or selling his music at all. The future of music-streaming is looking promising and Chance is a testament towards that.
David Bowie’s Backstair won Best Rock Song and Twenty One Pilots took home Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for Stressed Out.
A full list of winners can be found here.
While Beyoncé didn’t steal the awards section of the Grammys, she undoubtedly stole the show with her divine and heavenly performance. The hypnotizing visuals captured the audience. The queen herself wore an outfit only
she could pull off. Despite being pregnant (with twins!) Beyoncé still killed the choreography and the vocals were, as expected, stunning. Beyoncé and her baby bump definitely served up the best performance night.
Chance the Rapper’s gospel presentation of “How Great” took viewers to church. Lady Gaga and Metallica, an unusual duo, managed to bring down the house with a lot of head banging and crowd surfing. Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, and The Weeknd all kept their performances simple, but entertaining nonetheless.
Adele while tributing George Michael, stopped the show, proving that live television is still under her control. After getting back on key, she delivered a beautiful and flawless “Fastlove” tribute. There was also tributes to the Bee Gees and Prince later into the night.
While the Grammys had only dipped its toe into politics, A Tribe Called Quest brought a strong message to the forefront in their performance. Dressed in Black Panther attire, the rap group along with Best New Artist nomination, Anderson .Paak, delivered a powerful show, performing “Movin’ Backwards” and “We The People” ending it with a chant of “Resist! Resist! Resist! Resist!”
Staying on the topic of politics, Joy Villa sported a pro-Trump dress with “Make America Great Again” displayed down the side, definitely causing attention.
CeeLo Green was definitely the most tragic thing to happen this year at the Grammys. First, showing up to the red carpet dressed in all gold, from head to toe (literally) looking like an angry Ferrero Rocher candy wrapper. Then, after not winning any awards, left the show early flipping off the crowd as he sped away in his car.
Overall, the night was an upset for some artists and an unusual success for others. James Corden was a great host and definitely brought a sense of humor to the show that we all needed. Amped up with political charge and emotional speeches and performances, the 59th Grammys was one for the books.
