Beyonce broke the all time record for the most wins ever with 32 wins. She made history as she surpassed late orchestral conductor Sir Georg Solti who had won 31 in total.
During her speech she got emotional and as she expressed her gratitude toward her loved ones as she said: ‘Thank you so much. I’m trying not to be too emotional. And I’m trying to just receive this night. I want to thank god for protecting me. Thank you, god. I’d like to thank my uncle Jonny, who’s not here. But he’s here in spirit.’
Beyonce had dedicated her album Renaissance to her late gay uncle Johnny as she called him her ‘godmother’ and ‘the first person to expose me to a lot of the music and culture that serve as inspiration for this album.’
But the biggest prize of the night went to Harry Style who got the top honour as he won the Album Of The Year award.
The 29-year-old British singer won for his album Harry’s House and was shocked as he accepted the top prize. ‘Um, man. I’ve been so, so inspired by every artist in this category with me. At a lot of different times in my life, I listened to everyone in this category when I’m alone. And I think like on nights like tonight, it’s obviously so important for us to remember that there is no such thing as bests in music. ‘I don’t think any of us sit in the studio thinking making decisions based on what is going to get us one of these. This is really, really kind. I’m so, so grateful. I’m going to pass it over to my collaborators who are — I’m just so this doesn’t happen to people like me very often. And this is so, so nice. Thank you very, very much.’
