The annual Grammy awards has just descended upon us, where the creme de la creme of acts are celebrated widely for their talents in recording, concepts, production, performance and more. The ceremony itself had some honourable moments, from Tyler, The Creator’s explosive live performance to Usher’s and FKA Twigs’ tribute to the legendary purple one, Prince. But all distractions aside, the Grammys are about the winners, so here we are, telling you all about them. Not only did some festival favourites completely clean up, but there’s a chance to catch them on stage this year…
Awards: Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, Song of the Year, Record of the Year
What a year this dark-pop sensation has had, from releasing a best-selling and critically acclaimed debut album to dominating festival stages across the globe, these Grammy Award wins are well deserved. Not only did she take five awards, she broke a record in being the youngest to ever do so. Her performance at this year’s event was met with rave reviews, too, as the stripped back live version of ‘When the Party's Over’ offered an alternative to her usual set. If you want to see her perform yourself, you can at this year’s Lollapalooza Paris.
Tyler, The Creator
Awards: Best Rap Album
Signalling his first Grammy win ever, Tyler, The Creator collected the prize for best rap album, beating the likes of J.Cole, Meek Mill, 21 Savage and more. But, is anybody really that surprised when his creation IGOR soundtracked the summers of not only hiphop fans but recent converts? Probably not. With such an iconic album release comes a string of in demand live dates, as Tyler returns to the UK for the first time in years, taking on Lovebox Festival, as well as taking over Barcelona for a headline set at Primavera Sound.
Awards: Best R&B Album, Best R&B Performance
Anderson .Paak is no stranger to winning awards for his unparalleled performances, having been honoured with the award for Best Rap Performance only last year, in 2020, .Paak claims first place in the R&B Performance category. Not only that, the rapper and singer won Best R&B Album for his smooth and funky Ventura. Catch him at this year’s Lovebox Festival.
Awards: Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best Pop Solo Performance
From challenging - and changing - the world’s beauty standards to stand out live renditions of her viral hits, it looks like the only logical next step for our pop queen Lizzo is world domination. While that’ll probably take a bit of time a few Grammy award wins will have to do for now. Not only collecting the prize for Best Urban Contemporary Album - the exceptional, flute playing dancer and singer also claimed awards for Best Traditional R&B Performance for ‘Jerome’ and Best Pop Solo Performance for her empowering smash hit ‘Truth Hurts’. See her perform yourself at this year’s Lovebox Festival.
