Taylor Swift became the first female singer to win the album of the year three times, taking this year’s honor with “Folklore.” 

Beyoncé also set a new record for the most wins by a female artist and most wins by a singer, male or female, at the ceremony hosted by Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show.” However, it was Eilish who took the evening’s biggest win, following up 2020’s record of the year win for “Bad Guy” with a victory this year for “Everything I Wanted.”

Eilish, however, just wanted to give the honor to Megan Thee Stallion for “Savage,” the Houston rapper’s collaboration with Beyoncé. “This is really embarrassing for me…you deserve this,” Eilish told Megan Thee Stallion. “You had a year that was unstoppable. You are queen. I want to cry thinking about how much I love you. You are so beautiful. You are so talented. You deserve everything in the world.”

Meanwhile, Megan Thee Stallion still had a great weeknight, becoming the first female rapper to win the prestigious best new artist honor since Lauryn Hill in 1999. “Savage” won best rap song and best rap performance, and Beyoncé also took best R&B performance for “Black Parade” and best music video for “Brown Skin Girl.” Having achieved 28 Grammy wins overall, Beyoncé broke the record set by Alison Krauss.

“Brown Skin Girl” that featured Beyoncé’s 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, making her daughter the second youngest person to win a Grammy. “I’m so proud of you and I’m so proud to be your mommy,” said Beyoncé.

Dua Lipa’s “Future Nostalgia” was declared best pop vocal album. H.E.R. won song of the year for “I Can’t Breathe,” Miranda Lambert’s “Wildcard” was declared best country album, and Harry Styles wore a lavender feather boa to receive his pop solo performance award for “Watermelon Sugar.”
