The 65th Annual Grammy Awards took place in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 5, and everyone from Beyoncé to Kendrick Lamar, Adele, and Harry Styles was in attendance for music’s biggest night. And as expected, the night was filled with highs, lows, and major surprises.
Hosted by Trevor Noah, 2023’s Grammys included memorable performances from Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Steve Lacy, and more. Most notably, Quavo delivered a tribute to Takeoff alongside contemporary gospel collective Maverick City. Jay-Z also returned to the main stage, performing his entire four-minute verse of “God Did” with DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, John Legend, and Lil Wayne.
There were some big wins, too. Beyoncé became the most decorated artist in Grammys history with 32 wins. But the night wasn’t perfect. The Grammys have always been flawed, especially when it comes to fairly recognizing artists in hip-hop. Many fans were disappointed with the winners of major categories like Album of the Year and Record of the Year. But what is a Grammy night if there are no snubs?
Below, we break down the good (yay), bad (nay), and most surprising moments of the night.
