Here's What Happened at the Grammy Awards

In his opening monologue at the Grammy Awards Ceremony last night, host Trevor Noah pointed out how women dominated the nominations this year. They also ended up dominating the winner's list. It was a record-breaking night, as Taylor Swift won her fourth Album of the Year Grammy for Midnights, the only artist to ever achieve so many. Swift also won the award for Best Pop Vocal Album. The Song of the Year Award, which is for song writers, went to “What Was I Made For?” from the Barbie movie, written by Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell. Miley Cyrus took home her first two Grammys, for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, and Victoria Monét was named Best New Artist of the Year.

Besides the biggest winners, there was a lot of notable nostalgia in the ceremony. The Beatles won their first Grammy in 30 years. Billy Joel performed his first new original song in 17 years, "Turn the Lights Back On." U2 performed from inside the Las Vegas Sphere. And Joni Mitchell sang "Both Sides Now." In more contemporary events, Killer Mike won three rap awards and then was arrested for an altercation at the awards ceremony.
