Grammys 2023: A Golden Night to Remember

Last night, the biggest names in music took to the Grammy stage to extend the magic the award show offers to both viewers and participants of the night. Hosted by Trevor Noah at the Arena in Los Angeles, the 3-and-a-half-hour ceremony included musical and visual delights to keep viewers entertained throughout the night. Performances by global superstars such as Harry Styles and Lizzo, as well as Hip-Hop legends like Missy Elliot and Jay-Z, took to the stage to celebrate music, community, and artistic merit through their crafts.


Starting the night off with a bang, Bad Bunny performed El Apagón” and Después de la Playa” with a group of dancers costumed in papier-mâché heads and colorful garments. Following the high-energy performance was a slew of artists showcasing the wide range of genres celebrated throughout the night, including The Blind Boys of Alabama, Brandi Carlile, Carlos Vives, and DJ Khaled.


Between these performances, many more surprises were in store, such as superstars presenting the nominations for each respective award and winner, like SZA awarding Best Musica Urbana Album and Dwayne The Rock” Johnson announcing the winner of Best Pop Solo Performance. Notably, before Dwayne Johnson presented the award to Adele, the two celebrities have been intending to formally meet each other; the award show provided a instantaneously viral moment, with “The Rock” declaring the winner by saying “Get up here best friend...!”.


Continuing the night of star-studded performances, six-time nominee Harry Styles performed his hit single As It Was” on a rotating stage, and five-time nominee Lizzo performed a medley of About Damn Time” and Special” alongside an all-womens choir. Sam Smith and Kim Petras also took the stage to perform their smash hit Unholy” in a sweeping wash of red and fire onstage.


Despite many nominations for a select few musicians, it appears that many musicians didnt leave empty-handed, with many artists going with at least one trophy in their hands. A big winner for the night was Beyoncé, who took home four awards and cemented herself as the artist with the most Grammy wins in history. Continuing the history-making story, Viola Davis also earned a Grammy for her audiobook, cementing her status as an EGOT (Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, and Tony awards) winner amongst the greats of entertainment.


However, Harry Styles took home the Best Pop Vocal Album award and the nights biggest award for Album of the Year for his album Harrys House.” The win surprised and divided many music fans, some claiming the award should have been given to Beyoncé for her album Renaissance” while others defended Styles triumph.


Whether one agrees or disagrees with the album of the year decision, its inarguable that the award show highlighted diversity within the arts and gave nods to all nominees deserving to be recognized and awarded.
