The Grammys. One of the best achievements an artist strives for. The award represents hard work and immense talent. On April 3, world-loved singers performed, strutted the red carpet, and received Grammys.

For Best Album, the more popular nominees were Happier Than Ever by Billie Ellish, Sour by Olivia Rodrigo, and Evermore by Taylor Swift. However, the overall winner was We Are by Jon Batiste.
Doja Cat and SZA won the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Grammy for their performance of “Kiss Me More,” which is one of Doja Cat’s most popular songs.
Rising pop star Olivia Rodrigo won a Grammy for Best New Artist. Rodrigo was thrilled as she is only 19 years old. Rodrigo also took home two more Grammys, one for Best Pop Solo Performance, for “drivers license,” and another, Best Pop Vocal Album, for her album Sour.
Rodrigo also opened the Grammys, performing a jaw-dropping show of her hit song, “drivers license.”
Another jaw-dropping moment at the Grammys was when duo Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak won four Grammys all for one song. Their song, “Leave the Door Open” won Record of the Year, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Performance, and Song of the Year.
Billie Ellish would have been the first artist to win a milestone, being the first person to win for three years in a row. She would have also been the first artist to win a Grammy three times unaccompanied.
Tony Bennett would have also broken a Grammy record. If he had won his song with Lady Gaga, “I Get a Kick Out of You,” Bennett would have been the oldest person to receive a Grammy.
Even though they didn’t win, both artists were happy for Mars and Paak.
Chris Stapleton, a country artist, is another who won multiple Grammys. Stapleton walked home with three awards, a massive accomplishment. He won Best Country Album for his album Starting Over, Best Country Solo Performance for “You Should Probably Leave,” and his third one being for Best Country Song, “Cold.”
Artists are now working on new albums, hoping to win multiple Grammys next year.
