Female Artists Absolutely Slayed This Year's Grammy Awards

The ladies of the music industry well and truly showed us who runs the world as they swept the floor with a series of well-deserved wins at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.

The event, which was pushed back from its January date due to Covid-19, was held in and around the Los Angeles Convention Centre instead of its usual location at the Staples Centre.

Not only did a slew of female artists absolutely kill it when it came to wins and epic performances, but a number of records were also broken by some of our favourites, too.

Among the winners of the evening was Megan Thee Stallion, who took home best new artist and best rap performance for her 'Savage' remix with Beyoncé.

She also made her-story in becoming the first female rapper to win best rap song.

"It's been a hell of a year, but we made it," Megan Thee Stallion said when accepting best new artist.

Music royalty Taylor Swift and Beyoncé also made Grammys history at this year's ceremony, with Swift becoming the first female performer to win the award for album of the year three times for folklore, while Queen B celebrated her 28th win, making her the most decorated woman in Grammy history.

"As an artist, I believe it's my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect time and it's been such a difficult time," Beyoncé said onstage as she won best R&B performance for 'Black Parade'.

"I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all the beautiful black kings and queens who have inspired me and the whole world.

"I have been working my whole life ... This is such a magical night," she added.

It looks like talent runs in the blood, too, with B and Jay-Z's 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter winning best music video alongside her mother for 'Brown Skin Girl', making pop royalty's eldest child the second youngest act to win a Grammy in the show's 63-year history.

Dua Lipa, who won best pop vocal album, said backstage that it was 'amazing' to see her fellow female artists winning big in 2021.

"I feel like there's been a lot of female empowerment and lots of women winning awards tonight. And so it's been absolutely amazing to just be alongside all that, to feel that energy," she said.

Billie Eilish managed to nab her second consecutive record of the year honour, saying to the audience that she believed Megan Thee Stallion deserved the award instead.

"You deserve the world, I think about you constantly, I root for you always," she said.

"Can we just cheer for Megan Thee Stallion, please?"

H.E.R also took home song of the year for the Black Lives Matter anthem 'I Can't Breathe'.

"We wrote this song over FaceTime," H.E.R. said, accepting the award, adding: "And I didn't imagine that my fear and that my pain would turn into impact and that it would possibly turn into change."
