Find out who walked away with the most awards at the 65th annual Grammys.

It’s been quite a year for Beyonce, who went into the 65th annual Grammy Awards with the most nominations with nine, bringing her career total to a record 88 — tying her with her husband, Jay-Z. After Sunday night’s show, Beyonce claimed the record for most Grammy wins by an artist with 33.

Her album Renaissance was up for Album of the Year alongside Adele’s 30, Bad Bunny’s Verano Sin Ti, ABBA’s first album in 40 years Voyage, Mary J. Blige’s Good Morning Gorgeous, Harry Styles’ Harry’s House, Lizzo’s Special, Brandi Carlile’s In These Silent Days, and Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres

Trevor Noah returned for his third year as the show’s host, saying, “Sometimes when you’re doing a live award show, you can focus so much on the production of it that you forget what’s happening right in front of your eyes, (that) some of the greatest talents of a generation are performing live in front of you. (…) It’s just this live volcano that’s erupting in front of our eyes, and it’s beautiful to be a part of.”

Notably, Taylor Swift’s Midnights, one of the biggest albums of 2022, was released after the cutoff point per the Recording Academy’s guidelines and will have to wait until next year to receive nominations. Still, her “All Too Well (10-Minute Version) (The Short Film)” has received nods for the 2023 edition, including Song of the Year. 

Absent from this year’s nominees include Drake and The Weeknd, who had both asked that their names be removed from consideration. Drake still received a nod for his work alongside Tems in Future’s “Wait for U,” which was up for Best Melodic Rap Performance.
