Grammy Awards 2021: Beyonce becomes most awarded female artiste in Grammy history

International MUSIC - 24 Mar 2021

American singer-songwriter Beyonce returned to the Grammys, pulling out all the sartorial stops for a surprise appearance during music's biggest night. The legendary musician earned the award for her chart-topping tune 'Black Parade', which she released last year in honour of Juneteenth. 

Music's biggest night is officially in full swing! Although the event looks a little different this time owing to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, that doesn't mean it's anything short of spectacular.

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards were delayed owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The annual show shifted from its original January 31 broadcast to March 14. Earlier a statement by the Recording Academy and CBS, which broadcasts the ceremony in the US, said the decision was reached “after thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artistes scheduled to appear.”

The ceremony honours musical artists, compositions, and albums across 84 categories.

Comedian and talk show host Trevor Noah is hosting this year's Grammys. It marks Noah's first time hosting the award ceremony. Though usually held at the Staples Center, this year's festivities are taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and the traditional venue of the awards — the Staples Center — will serve as the backdrop. 

The three-and-a-half hour long ceremony will have performances from Taylor Swift, BTS, Cardi B and Billie Eilish. Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa will also hit the stage at the event. Other performers include Chris Martin, John Mayer, Doja Cat, Maren Morris, DaBaby, HAIM, Lil Baby, Brandi Carlile, Roddy Ricch, Brittany Howard, Miranda Lambert, Mickey Guyton and Black Pumas.

Jacob Collier, Jhene Aiko, Lizzo and Ringo Starr will be the presenters at the main ceremony. Beyonce is leading the nominations with nine nods.
