The red carpet isn’t dead! Known as the biggest night in music, the 2021 Grammy Awards took place on the night of Sunday, March 14, and though, like all awards this season, the event took a different shape than usual––music’s brightest stars still stepped up to the red carpet with plenty of bold fashion looks.
Taking place mostly virtually with Trevor Noah as the host, and with some performances and red carpet appearances held at several locations, guests rose to the occasion and kept the Grammys spirit digitally alive.
Fans love to watch the most anticipated annual music awards event not only to see the biggest music artists in the world, but also to see what their favorite stars are rocking on the red carpet. So, it was the perfect evening to go all out, and for some, another opportunity to express their bold and unique style.
Aside from the sartorial slayage at the 2021 Grammys, viewers around the globe were in for a big treat as it was a big night on the winning front for many of their faves. Two Grammy icons made history yet again as Beyoncé won her 28th Grammy, becoming the most-awarded woman in Grammy history, while Taylor Swift became the first woman to win ‘Album of the Year’ three times.
Beyoncé’s ‘Savage’ collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion won ‘Best Rap Song’ and ‘Best Rap Performance,’ as she also took home ‘Best R&B Performance’ for ‘Black Parade’ and ‘Best Music Video’ for ‘Brown Skin Girl.’ The Ivy Park designer breaks country singer Alison Krauss record to hold the new title and also ties with Quincy Jones for the most wins by a non-classical musician. Only the late composer Georg Solti has more wins, with a total of 31 Grammy awards.
Blue Ivy Carter also won herself a Grammy award for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ which makes her the youngest recipient of the prestigious award, following in her mother’s footsteps.
It was also a good night for Black stars as Megan The Stallion took home multiple awards including the ‘Best New Artist’ award. Megan becomes the first female hip hop artist to win ‘Best New Artist’ since Lauryn Hill did it in 1999.
Nigeria’s very own Burna boy took home the award for ‘Best Global album’, making him the first Nigerian to win a Grammy award for an original body of work. Other Black winners at the 2021 Grammy Awards include John Legend, Wizkid for ‘Brown Skin Girl’, Kanye West, Mali Music, Jonathan McReynolds and more.
The night was also marked by major performances by some of the biggest artists of the moment. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion performed live for the first time their critically acclaimed song “WAP.” Both superstars of expectedly did the most on stage, with Megan starting out with her smash hit ‘Body’ before being joined by Cardi B.
Grammy nominees DaBaby and Dua Lipa also took the stage to perform their remix of ‘Levitating.’ Dua Lipa was a show-stopper all night long as she changed outfits multiple times during the show.
