Beyoncé made history on Sunday by becoming the most winning artist in Grammy Awards history.

The singer won her 32nd Grammy Award after taking home Best Dance/Electronic Album. The award means Beyoncé has passed conductor Georg Solti, who previously held the record for most Grammy Awards prior to Sunday with 31.

His last Grammy victory came at the 40th Grammy Awards in 1998.

Before the broadcast even started, Beyoncé picked up her 29th and 30th wins in Best Dance/Electronic Recording and Best Traditional R&B Performance for two songs from her album, ‘Renaissance’.

Her 31st Grammy Awards victory came early in the broadcast when she won Best R&B Song for ‘Cuff It’.

“I’m trying not to be too emotional and I’m trying to just receive this night,” she said after breaking the record.

“I want to thank God for protecting me… I’d like to thank my uncle Johnny, who’s not here, but he’s here in spirit.”

She then went on to thank her parents, husband and three children before concluding: “I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing this genre.”

Beyoncé was late to Grammy Awards

Beyoncé wasn’t even at the Grammy Awards when she won her 31st trophy because she was stuck in a traffic jam outside the arena.

As a result, Terius Nash and Nile Rodgers took to the stage to accept the award on her behalf.

Nash thanked the crowd before host Trevor Noah offered an explanation to those in attendance and those watching at home.

“So for real, Beyoncé is on her way. The upside of hosting the Grammys in LA is that everyone can be here, the downside of hosting the Grammys in LA is the traffic,” Noah explained.

Prior to the news that Beyoncé was late to the show, Lizzo was seen trying to catch a glimpse of the star during Noah’s opening monologue.

Beyoncé came up short in the big categories

After winning big early on, Beyoncé was still up for some of the biggest categories of the night, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

In the end she failed to win any of the three, with the awards going to Harry Styles, Lizzo and Bonnie Raitt respectively.
