Biggest: Beyoncé is the most decorated music artist ever with a record 32 Grammy Awards throughout her career, after being the biggest winner at the music industry's top ceremony held tonight (Monday) in Los Angeles.

Beyoncé picked up four awards at the 65th Grammy ceremony, adding up to a historic career total of 32 statuettes, thanks to the successful album "Renaissance", which was released last summer and became an instant hit even though for the first time she did not release music videos to promote it.

In doing so, she broke the previous record of the late Hungarian-Jewish classical orchestra conductor, Georg Solti.

"I'm trying not to get too excited, I'm trying to accept this evening, I want to thank God, my parents who love and push me forward, my husband and children and also the gay community for the love and for inventing the music genre (dance), thank you very much Grammy" , Beyoncé said in her speech, that last week she announced a tour in Europe and the USA.

Beyoncé won awards in the dance and R&B category, for the first single "Break My Soul" and the song "Cuff It", which was released as a single after becoming a trend on TikTok, and for the album in the dance/electronica category.

The audience rose to their feet in her honor, including Adele who, as I recall, stole the show in 2017 and won the most awards at the ceremony that year.

The British singer came this time with seven nominations and settled for one win in the pop category for the song "Easy On Me".

Harry Styles won the most prestigious award at the Grammys for album of the year for "Harry's House" as well as in the pop album category and performed at the ceremony "As It Was", his hit that was chosen by many 2022 summaries for song of the year, while wearing a glittering silver pantsuit with fringes.

In the audience he was cheered by Taylor Swift, who in their youth were rumored to be in a relationship.

Swift won a Grammy for Best Video Clip for the short film version of the song "All Too Well," which she also directed.

Lizo won recording of the year for "About Damn Time" and dedicated the win to the singer Prince, who, according to her, made her believe in herself and the need to produce positive music for the world again, and to Beyoncé who "changed her life" and she called her "the singer of all of our lives".

Veteran blues singer Bonnie Raitt won the Grammy for Song of the Year for "Just Like That."

Sam Smith and the trans singer Kim Peters won the Grammy for pop performance by a duo for their hit "Unholy", and the win was dedicated to all those who supported the fight for LGBTQ rights, led by Madonna, who later performed a live and provocative performance of the song. Among the many performers at the lengthy ceremony were Bud Bunny, Stevie Wonder and Sheryl Crow.

The ceremony was hosted by the South African comedian Trevor Noah, this time for the third time in a row and only a few weeks after he retired from presenting the light night "The Daily Show".

The broadcast was held regularly for the first time since 2019, when three years ago the disaster of the sudden death of basketball star Kobe Bryant just hours before the start of the ceremony in Los Angeles forced the organizers to combine tributes to his memory with the heavy mourning that fell on Los Angeles.

In the last two years, it was the restrictions of the corona virus that led to the postponement of the ceremony for two months until the morbidity figures calmed down, and last year the event was moved to Las Vegas without any choice.

The big moment before the main ceremony this time was actress Viola Davis winning a Grammy for narrating her autobiographical book "Finding Me", making her only the 18th EGOT bride in history.

This refers to the group of few artists who have won all four of the leading awards of the entertainment industries: Oscar (film), Emmy (television), Tony (theatre) and Grammy (music).

The ceremony was attended by, among others, Jennifer Lopez with Ben Affleck, Dwayne Johnson who came as a surprise to Adele, who previously said that she longed to meet him, and the first lady of the United States, Jill Biden, who presented a musical activism award to the Iranian protest artist Shervin Hajipour. Who Left out is Will Smith, almost a year after the violent incident at the 2022 Oscars, who was supposed to take part in the string to mark 50 years of hip-hop but "didn't come in the end because he's shooting a movie," explained the musician Questlab.
