Beyoncé missed her Grammy award because she was stuck in traffic 1:16
Beyoncé was already a queen, but now she's the queen of the Grammys.
Bey just became the most awarded artist in Grammy history, with a record 32 wins.
The award that made her break her record was best dance/electronic album, which she won for her celebrated album "Renaissance."
The crowd rose to its feet to celebrate Beyoncé's victory.
She thanked her late uncle Johnny, whose name she mentions in the famous song "Heated," as well as her husband and her three children.
She also recognized the LGBTQ artists who inspired and directly contributed to "Renaissance."
“I would like to thank the
community for their love and for inventing the genre,” he said.

Beyoncé, the best of all time
Grammy host Trevor Noah said Bey's win also settled another issue: “We can finally end the GOAT (greatest of all time) debate;
that's it, it's Beyoncé,” he said.
Beyoncé had the album of the summer with "Renaissance," an effervescent ode to the New York disco and ballroom scene of the 1970s and 1980s, a community founded by black, gay and trans people.
Four songs from "Renaissance" were nominated for Grammy Awards this year, and "Break My Soul" earned nominations for song and record of the year.
Earlier on Sunday, Beyoncé won Grammy Awards for Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best Dance/Electronic Recording for "Plastic Off the Sofa" and "Break My Soul," respectively.
He won at least one award in absentia: Noah told the audience that Bey was stuck in traffic on the way to the ceremony, so legendary guitarist Nile Rodgers accepted the award for best R&B performance, for "Cuff It." , in her name.
Beyoncé has amassed 88 Grammy nominations throughout her career.
She was already the most awarded female artist before Sunday's milestone.
Conductor Georg Solti previously held the record for the most Grammy Awards won by a single artist.
