The annual Grammy Awards ceremony returned to its home court in Los Angeles Friday night in full force after two years of Covid-related setbacks. “We made it”, as the host, Trevor Noah, phrased it. We’ve returned! Beyoncé set records as she took home four awards, including best R&B song for “Cuff It,” giving her a career-high 32 Grammys. Bonnie Raitt won song of the year, and Lizzo’s surprise at winning record of the year for “About Damn Time” was evident. The best pop vocal album award went to Harry Styles for “Harry’s House,” while the best pop duo/group performance went to Sam Smith and Kim Petras for “Unholy.” Other prizes were presented live. “I just want to thank all the wonderful transgender icons before me that kicked these doors open so I could be here today,” Petras, a transgender woman, said upon receiving the award. The actress Viola Davis became the newest EGOT—the coveted acronym for the winner of an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony—when her memoir “Finding Me” won outstanding audiobook, narration, and narrative recording.
