Here are all the winners from the Grammys 2021

Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Megan Thee Stallion are all up for multiple awards

The Grammys 2021 took place tonight (March 14) and saw stars from across the music world gather in Los Angeles.

Beyoncé took home the most awards at the ceremony, picking up four out of her nine nominations. In the process, she also broke the record for the most Grammy wins by a female artist or any singer, male or female.

Megan Thee Stallion followed closely behind her with three wins, including Best New Artist, while Billie Eilish took home two trophies, including Record Of The Year for ‘Everything I Wanted’.


Performances on the night came from Harry Styles, who kicked off the main ceremony with ‘Watermelon Sugar’, Taylor Swift, who gave a medley of songs from ‘folklore’ and evermore’, and BTS, who recreated the Grammys stage in Seoul.

The Grammys 2021 was preceded by controversy, with The Weeknd saying he will no longer allow his label to submit his music for consideration. The star was thought to be a shoo-in for multiple nominations for his album ‘After Hours’, but was not given any nods in the shortlists.

During the ceremony, Grammys boss Harvey Mason Jr asked stars to “work with us, not against us” in creating a new Recording Academy “we can all be proud of”.
