Beyoncé breaks Grammys record, becomes most-decorated artist
With her fourth victory on Sunday, Beyoncé broke the previous record of 26 years held by the late Hungarian-British conductor Georg Solti to become the most decorated performer in the history of the show.
The superstar singer bagged 32 awards after she won for best R&B song for “Cuff It,” dance-electric music recording for “Break My Soul,” traditional R&B performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa” and dance-electric music for her seventh studio album “Renaissance,” which is also nominated for album of the year.

Beyoncé failed to tie Solti’s record, which stood since 1997, in time. She was in route to the ceremony, according to host Trevor Noah, but she was unable to attend in person because of traffic in Los Angeles. The song was composed by a number of people, including Raphael Saadiq, The-Dream, Beyonce, and Nile Rodgers.
At Beyonce’s table, which also included her husband Jay-Z and The-Dream, Noah gave her the trophy for the best R&B song when she eventually arrived. With five wins in that category, she continued to hold the record for the artist with the most victories.
Taylor Swift got up and started dancing next to her table as Bad Bunny’s joyful, upbeat performance at the Grammy Awards’ opening ceremony drew in a large portion of the audience.
In his introduction, Noah referred to Bunny as a “global force” and the most streamed and listened-to musician in the entire planet.
Beyoncé had two Grammy awards by the time the event began. Beyoncé was the most nominated artist for the year’s album, song, and record when the awards show began on Sunday. If she triumphs in one of those important categories, it will be her first victory since she won Song of the Year in 2010 for “Single Ladies.”
Styles won the main telecast’s first award for best pop vocal album for “Harry’s House.” The singer said recording the song was one of the “greatest experiences of my life. It’s been my greatest joy.”
Sam Smith and Kim Petras won best pop duo-group performance for their song “Unholy.” Petras said Smith wanted Petras to make the acceptance speech because “I’m the first transgender woman to win this award.”
“I want to thank all the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open for me so I could be here tonight,” said Petras, who made a reference to friend and Grammy-nominated musician Sophie, who died after an accidental fall in Athens, Greece in 2021. “You told me this would happen. I always believed in me. Thank you so much for your inspiration, Sophie. I adore you, and your inspiration will forever be in my music.”
