US singer Beyoncé has set the record for most Grammys of all time with 32 awards.
The 41-year-old superstar also won the Best Dance/Electronic Album category for her album »Renaissance« at the major music award ceremony on Sunday evening (local time) in Los Angeles.
She overtook the British-Hungarian conductor Georg Solti, who had already died, with 31 prizes.
“I try not to be too emotional.
I'm just trying to accept this night," Beyoncé said, visibly touched.
With tens of millions of records sold and seven studio albums, all of which reached number one in the US, Beyoncé is one of the most successful musicians in the world - and one of the richest.
She has already set several records in the charts.
After a six-year break, she released her seventh studio album »Renaissance« in the summer.
The 65th Grammy Music Awards were presented on Monday night in Los Angeles.
The gala was again moderated by comedian Trevor Noah.
According to the organizer, Grammys should be awarded in 91 categories this year.
Actress Viola Davis also made headlines at the ceremony.
She was honored with a Grammy for the audio book of her autobiography "Finding Me" - and thus achieved the so-called EGOT status.
She is now officially one of 18 artists to have won all four major US entertainment trophies: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

There is also a German among this year's Grammy winners: Cologne-born singer Kim Petras and British singer Sam Smith were honored for their club hit "Unholy" - they won the trophy for best pop duo.
This makes the German the first trans person in the history of the Grammys to be honored in this category.
