The 2023 Grammy Awards took place on Sunday (February 6, IST). The star-studded event at Arena in Los Angeles was attended by Lizzo, Steve Lacy, Luke Combs, Mary J. Blige, Harry Styles, Sam Smith and many others. A fantastic performance by Bad Bunny that featured dancers dressed in traditional garb and pyrotechnics kicked off the evening. Harry Styles performed his track, As It Was, at the event while the song, Unholy, was performed by Sam Smith and Kim Petras.

In addition, the ceremony also paid tributes to three deceased icons: Takeoff, a Migos rapper who was shot and killed in November, Christine McVie, a Fleetwood Mac singer who died in October, and Loretta Lynn, who passed away in October. 

Viola Davis became only the third Black woman in history to receive the coveted EGOT status. The Grammys also featured a lineup of musicians to honour hip-hop's 50th anniversary, drawing enthusiastic applause from the audience.

With 32 Grammys, Beyonce surpassed all previous records. She not only won Best Dance/Electronic Album for Renaissance but also Best R&B Song for Cuff it. Conversely, Kendrick Lamar had a number of significant victories for the evening. The first transgender woman to win a Grammy, Kim Petras, made history. Lizzo left with the Record of the Year award. Bengaluru-based musician Ricky Kej won his third Grammy at the event.
