Queen Bey is in a class of her own.
WASHINGTON – Beyonce has done it again.
The singer took home the top honor at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards and was named the most decorated artist in the show’s history.
The singer, who now has 32 awards, surpassed the record held by the late Hungarian-British conductor Georg Solti. Solti, who has 31 Grammys, has held the record since 1997.
Host Trevor Noah explained that Beyonce had set the record earlier in the night but was unable to accept the award in person due to Los Angeles traffic.
Once Beyoncé made it, she broke records by winning Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for “Renaissance.”
The singer made a guest appearance at Sunday’s event. Leading nominee Including album, song and record of the year.
During the inaugural Grammys ceremony, Beyoncé came close to capturing the title with two wins. Before Sunday’s ceremony, Beyoncé and Quincy Jones were tied with 28 Grammy wins.
They won in the Best Dance-Electronic Music Recording category for “Break My Soul”, Traditional R&B Performance for “Plastic of the Couch” and R&B Song for “Cuff It”, which Beyoncé, The Dream, Niles won. It was written by many authors including Rogers, Raphael Sadiq.

The actress gave an emotional speech and emphatically said “I’m just EGOt” after marching on stage to collect her award.
“Oh, my God,” she said. “I wrote this book to honor 6-year-old Viola, to honor her, her life, her joy, her trauma, everything,” Davis said. A journey.”

Taylor Swift, whose latest album “Midnights” was not eligible for this year’s Grammys, could win her first song of the year trophy for “All Too Well.” Adele’s Song of the Year win for her track “Easy On Me” would make her the most decorated artist in the category with three wins, the others for her mega-hits “Hello” and “Rolling in the Deep.” Will come.
