Despite a pandemic, the Grammy Awards went full steam ahead this year to bring iconic award speeches, fashion moments and, most importantly, amazing musical performances.
With masks, social distancing and many guests opting to arrive virtually instead, it was an awards night like no other. The awards were hosted by Trevor Noah across different areas to keep in line with COVID-19 guidelines; the award presentations took place outside while the stage indoors hosted the performances.
As OK! previously reported, Beyoncé made history when she won the 27th and 28th Grammys of her career while Megan Thee Stallion had a huge night as well. Stallion was named Best New Artist of The Year and took home Best Rap Song with Beyoncé... not to mention her huge shoutout from Billie Eilish at the end of the ceremony.
After a busy year filled with new releases and rerecording old favorites, Taylor Swift won Album of the Year for folklore, which made her the first woman to win that award three times. Meanwhile, Harry Styles won his first ever Grammy for "Watermelon Sugar."
Stallion also made jaws drop with Cardi B when they performed "WAP," but it wasn’t the only eye-catching performance of the night.

Talk about an entrance! Post Malone's performance of "Hollywood's Bleeding" began with an eerie hooded choir, who then circled the 25-year-old as he sang. The "rockstar" hitmaker was up for three Grammys this year, but went home empty-handed.
Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion
Post Malone went viral for his reaction to Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's performance of "WAP," after the pair danced around a giant stiletto heel during the NSFW track.
Dua Lipa & DaBaby
Dua Lipa and DaBaby shared the stage for a dreamy-pink mashup of "Levitating" and "Don't Start Now." DaBaby was joined by masked back-up dancers after Dua Lipa's intro before she rejoined the performance.
Swift brought her folklore aesthetic to the Grammys when she laid on a make-shift hillside to sing "cardigan," before she grabbed a guitar to play "august" and "willow."
Before Styles took home Best Pop Solo Performance for "Watermelon Sugar," he opened the night with a stripped-back rendition of the track, donning an all-leather suit without a shirt and a feather boa.
Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak made their Silk Sonic debut at the Grammys with their performance of "Leave The Door Open." The "Marry You" crooner took on a supporting role as .Paak stole the show with the '70s-themed bop.
Bad Bunny & Jhay Cortez
Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez gave an electrifying rendition of "Dákiti."
Rocker Poppy tore up the stage with "EAT"
