64th Annual GRAMMY Awards
Key GRAMMY Week events will be announced closer to the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
The 2021 Grammy Awards were unlike any we’ve ever witnessed. Instead of a packed Staples Center, a very limited number of rotating attendees were gathered in an outdoor tent across the street from the stadium. Host Trevor Noah did a good job moving the event from performance to performance, which began with songs from The Black Pumas, HAIM, and Grammy darling Billie Eilish.
Just a year after Billie made history at the 62nd Grammy Awards by becoming the youngest artist to win all four major categories, she returned for a victory lap, winning Record of the Year for “everything i wanted.” At this point, it’s a surprise when Eilish doesn’t win. In case the Record of the Year win wasn’t enough, Eilish also took home the gold for “No Time to Die,” competing in the Best Song Written For Visual Media Category. Though the James Bond film isn’t out yet, Eilish’s hit is already a cultural touchstone.
Taylor Swift gave a riveting performance in an enchanted cabin alongside Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner of The National. The trio performed three songs, including “cardigan” and “august” from folklore and “willow” from evermore. Later in the evening, Taylor took home her 11th Grammy when she won Album of The Year for folklore.
