2023 Grammy Awards winners and losers: Beyoncé, Harry Styles, Lizzo, Chris Brown
The 65th Grammy Awards wrapped up on Sunday with Beyoncé making history but still going home lacking one elusive trophy. Here’s a look at who won and lost.
Even though Beyoncé took home four awards on Sunday, becoming the winningest artist in Grammy history, she still went home empty-handed. Once again, she was passed over for Album of the Year, for which she’s been nominated four times.
However, she wasn’t the only artist to get passed over at the 65th Grammy Awards which returned to Los Angeles after covid forced the ceremony to be held in Las Vegas. Here’s a look at other surprises from the music industry’s premier award ceremony.
Check out the full list of winners for the 2023 Grammys
Album of the Year escapes Beyoncé once again
Queen Bey first lost to Taylor Swift in 2010, Beck in 2015 and Adele in 2017 for Album of the Year. This year she had to watch as Harry Styles snatched the grand prize from her clutches with his ‘Harry’s House’.
She was also passed over for Song of the Year, that one was a bit of a shocker, going to Bonnie Raitt. The legendary 73-year-old musical artist was in the running with serious big-name competition, so congratulations on her win for ‘Just like that’.
Lizzo: “Beyoncé you are the artist of our lives”
Beyoncé as well had to applaud Lizzo when she took the award for Artist of the Year. But Lizzo during her acceptance speech gave the singer she credits with changing her life when she skipped fifth grade to go see her concert a recognition not on the formal list for the night, Beyoncé “you clearly are the artist of our lives.”
Beyoncé had nine nominations for the night and in the end took home four, making her the artist with the most gramophone trophies to her name in the history of the Grammys. But one other surprise upset for the night was Muni Long for Best R&B Performance with ‘Hrs & Hrs’ denying Queen Bey a potential fifth win for the night.
An undignified loss by Chris Brown
Not everyone was as dignified as the diva who has yet to claim a Grammy Album of the Year nor the Queen of Hip-Hop who one would think would’ve been a shoo-in. When Robert Glasper was announced as the winner for Best R&B Album for his album ‘Black Radio III’ it got an off-the-cuff reaction from Chris Brown on Instagram.
The 33-year-old rapper, who wasn’t in attendance at the 65th Grammy Awards ceremony, posted a screenshot captioned with “BRO WHO THE F–K IS THIS?” of his Google search for the Houston artist whose work “bridges several different musical and artistic genres.” Brown has since erased his posts expressing his disbelief at losing.
