admin By admin

As reported by the Associated Press, the initial accolade, presented by host and songwriter Justin Tranter, was the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Award, won by SZA and Phoebe Bridgers for their collaboration on “Ghost in the Machine.”

Taylor Swift, the pop superstar, achieved yet another milestone in the music industry on Sunday by winning the Grammy Award for Album of the Year for an unprecedented fourth time. This achievement adds to a growing list of honours dominated by women at the Grammy Awards.

Coco Jones, a rising star, emerged victorious in the highly competitive category for best R&B performance at the Grammys, claiming the award for her song “ICU.” The stiff competition included SZA’s “Kill Bill” and Victoria Monét’s “How Does It Make You Feel.” SZA secured her second win of the evening by taking home the best progressive R&B album award for “S.O.S.”

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift made a significant announcement during the Grammys on Sunday, using her 13th Grammy win to reveal details about her upcoming album. The new album, titled “Tortured Poets Department,” is set to be released on April 19, AP reported.

The announcement followed U2 frontman Bono presenting Swift with the award for Best Pop Vocal Album for her album “Midnights.”

“I know that the way that the Recording Academy voted is a direct reflection of the passion of the fans,” she said in her speech. “So I want to say thank you to the fans by telling you a secret that I’ve been keeping from you for the last two years which is that my brand new album comes out April 19. It’s called ‘The Tortured Poets Department.’ I’m gonna go and post the cover right now backstage.”

Grammy Awards on Sunday showcased a triumph for female artists as pop sensation Taylor Swift, R&B artist SZA, and pop singer Miley Cyrus emerged as winners. Women dominated this year’s top honours in the music industry, highlighting their significant contributions and achievements.

In 2024, the Grammy Awards introduced three new categories, with the first one, Best Pop Dance Recording, presented shortly thereafter. The award went to Kylie Minogue for “Padam Padam,” marking her first win in 18 years. Prior to the main broadcast, approximately 80 Grammys were awarded, including the recognition of Regional Mexican star Peso Pluma, who secured his first Grammy for Best Música Mexicana Album with “Genesis,” his debut and sole nomination.

Dozens of stars began arriving early, with Dua Lipa and Monét among the stunning looks on the arrivals carpet.

Michelle Obama secured a Grammy in the category of Best Audio Book, Narration, and Storytelling Recording for her work on “The Light We Carry: Overcoming In Uncertain Times,” triumphing over notable contenders such as Meryl Streep, William Shatner, Rick Rubin, and Sen. Bernie Sanders. Interestingly, upon the initial announcement of nominations in this category, some fans expressed surprise that Prince Harry’s memoir “Spare” did not receive recognition.

Where to watch

The main Grammy Awards show is scheduled to be broadcast live on CBS and Paramount, starting at 8 p.m. Eastern. Viewers with Paramount and Showtime subscriptions have the option to watch it both live and on demand. However, for Paramount Essential subscribers, streaming of the ceremony will be available only the following day.

The Nominees

SZA leads the Grammy nominations with nine, closely followed by Monét and Bridgers with seven each. Bridgers’ band, boygenius, has six nominations, matching Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, St. Vincent, Jon Batiste, and producer Jack Antonoff.

This year presents historic opportunities: No Black woman has won Album of the Year since 1999, but SZA or Janelle Monae could change that narrative.
