Last night, the 63rd annual Grammy Awards took place in LA.

Hosted by the one and only Trevor Noah, the night promised to provide us with the best of what the music industry has to offer in one star-studded night.

Even though the event was fully socially distanced, as most award ceremonies have been, it was filled with action.


And it's all because of one man. Trevor Noah.

But he didn't do it alone.

Stars such as Harry Styles, Beyonce, BTS, and Taylor Swift lined up to give us a night to remember.

Here's all the low-down, including all the drama surrounding Trevor Noah.

The event kicked off in true Grammy's fashion, as Harry Styles took center stage with his number 1 single, "Watermelon Sugar."


Dressed in a 2-piece leather suit and green feather boa, which was iconic enough already, the former One Direction member reminded the world that he's not just a pretty face with a nice British accent, although that seems to add to his powerful demeanor.

During his performance, he decided to play around with this idea of male sexuality.


Now, no one's going to forget the scandal involving Harry Styles and his famous Vogue cover where he opted to sport a dress, are they? The choice sparked a backlash from conservatives slamming the artist for straying from "gender norms."

However, that didn't put Styles off...

His Grammy performance outfit totally contrasted with his Vogue shoot, again, emphasizing the idea that men don't need to adhere to these rigid gender and sexuality norms in order to be perceived in a certain manner.

And alongside that, are we going to forget about those vocals and dance moves? Of course not.


Despite his performance already being a victory, Styles was also awarded with his first Grammy for Pop Solo Performance just as a lovely, little middle-finger to all the trolls online. How's that for a "manly man," eh?

​Styles wasn't the only one to make history yesterday either.


Megan Thee Stallion was a hot topic of the awards as she scooped up multiple awards while also leaving her mark on the industry by becoming the first female rapper in 2 decades to win Best New Artist.

Her breakout single "Savage" and her feature on the ever-so-famous hit single, "WAP" also bagged her 2 more awards.


The twenty-six-year-old was the winner in Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song too. This is just Megan's world and we're all just living in it. Period.

It didn't stop there in terms of female domination.


Taylor Swift made history as she became the first female artist to win Album of the Year 3 times. That's right, 3 times. The only other artists to have ever achieved such a momentous accolade are Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, and Stevie Wonder. But with Swift re-recording her previous albums, she's bound to steal the throne in that category for the next few years.

Next up, we have the winner of Record of the Year, Billie Eilish.


The now 7-time Grammy winner took home the awards for Song Written for Visual Media and the most prestigious award of the night, Record of the Year, with her hit single, "Everything I Wanted."

And being the gracious winner that she's always been, she dedicated her speech to Megan Thee Stallion, who she claimed "deserved" the award.


Eilish praised Stallion, telling her: "This is really embarrassing for me. Megan, girl... I was gonna write a speech about how you deserve this but then I was like, 'There's no way they're going to choose me,' I was like, 'It's hers.' You deserve this. You had a year that I think is unstoppable. You are a queen. I want to cry thinking about how much I love you. You're so beautiful. You're so talented."

You really do love to see it.

Other notable history-making appearances of the night included K-Pop group BTS.

7-piece Korean boy band, Bangtan Sonyeondan, became the first K-Pop group to perform one of their own nominated songs, "Dynamite" at the award show. Last year, we saw BTS assist Lil Nas X during "Old Town Road" and this year, they came as nominated guests as well as performers. We love the growth. Hopefully the future is bright for the group.

Now, would it be a historic night without the queen of the music industry?


Beyonce left her mark on the night after she officially became the female artist with the most Grammy awards to her name.

The singer now has a massive twenty-eight Grammys under her belt.


4 of those precious wins came last night as she was awarded Best Music Video, Best R&B Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance.

But she wasn't the only one...


Her daughter, Blue Ivy also got her first win alongside her mom and Wizkid for Best Music Video too!

All in all, the night played host to some incredible events... But we need to talk about one of them in particular.


Trevor Noah's jokes during his opening monologue.

He went in, that's for sure!


No topic was off limits. The royals, the pandemic, and even the Capitol Riots made it in there.

But while some people were thrilled...

Others weren't...

He didn't waste any time...


"Our impressive nominees will be sitting at those tables for their awards. So right now there is more tension in that tent than at a family reunion at Buckingham Palace."

He then moved onto the topic of the Capitol Riots:

The Daily Show host also made a quick crack about the Capitol riots, claiming that the Grammy Awards would be the "biggest outdoor event this year... besides the storming of the Capitol," despite earlier insisting that the show would "not be about politics."

For those of you that didn't get it... That's the joke.

Not to mention his joke about Harry Styles...

He then introduced the first performer of the night, Harry Styles, by joking he'll "steal your heart and your dress and he'll look damn good doing it." After the performance, he added it was hard to believe that "someone that talented and handsome [as Harry] is from the same place as Boris Johnson."

Where was the lie though?
