Grammys 2021 winners Taylor Swift and Beyoncé’s historical moments
The Grammy Awards 2021 ceremony was recently broadcasted on Sunday, March 14. While some nominees didn’t manage to bag an award for themselves this year, a lot of others did, and everyone was over the moon by the time the ceremony came to an end. It also seems like the Grammys 2021 awards ceremony proved to be all about girl power!
Taylor Swift and Beyoncé made history this year with their noteworthy achievements. Taylor Swift became the first woman to receive Album of the Year award three times.
She bagged the award this time for her album, “Folklore”. The 31-year-old singer also previously won the Album of the Year award for her albums, “Fearless” and “1989”.
“We just want to thank the fans,” said Taylor Swift, referring to her win.
Ex-‘Destiny’s Child’ member Beyoncé stepped ahead of Alison Krauss to become the most embellished female act in the history of Grammy Awards.
Beyoncé received her 28th Grammy, successfully sweeping the categories of Best R&B performance for “Black Parade”, Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl”, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song for “Savage” with rapper Megan Thee Stallion.
“As an artist I believe it’s my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect time and it’s been such a difficult time,” said Beyoncé during her acceptance speech for Best R&B Performance. “I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all the beautiful Black kings and queens that continue to inspire me,” she added.
Although Beyoncé didn’t perform this time, Taylor Swift engrossed the audience with her performance of “Cardigan” and “August” from her album ‘Folklore’ and “Willow” from ‘Evermore’.

Jay-Z, who co-wrote “Savage,” won Best Rap Song, and also their 9-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, won the Best Music Video, with her mother, making her the youngest person to win a Grammy in the ceremony’s history since the past 62 years.
