A historic evening for Beyoncé.

The American superstar became, Sunday, February 5, in Los Angeles, the most awarded artist in the history of the Grammy Awards, with four new trophies, bringing the total of his awards to 32.

Despite his many victories, the 41-year-old superstar has never won the trophy for best album since the start of his career, which again eluded him this year, returning to British singer Harry Styles.

By winning the title of best dance or electronic album with "Renaissance", Beyoncé exceeded the record of 31 awards previously held by the late conductor Georg Solti.

"I try not to be too moved", she launched, thanking in turn her parents, her "beautiful husband" Jay-Z, her "three beautiful children" and "the queer community" who support her. always supported.

However, a major reward still eludes him: as in 2017 with "Lemonade", which has become a classic, "Renaissance", his latest house and dance opus, failed to obtain the prize for best album.

Supreme award for the British Harry Styles

On the glowing stage of the Crypto.com Arena, it was pop sensation Harry Styles who took the prize, thanks to "Harry's House", which also won him the Grammy for best pop vocal album.

Dressed all in sparkly fringe, he performed his hit "As It Was" at a night that was packed with stars, from Jay-Z to Kendrick Lamar and Dr Dre, to Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Lizzo and Mary J. Blige.

In another surprise, blues, folk and country veteran Bonnie Raitt, 73, won song of the year with "Just Like That", an award presented to her by US First Lady Jill Biden.

Lizzo won recording of the year for 'About Damn Time', while British star Adele had to settle for best pop solo performance.

In 2017, the "Hello" singer crushed her competitors in the main categories, winning five awards with her album "25", to the detriment of Beyoncé, whose album "Lemonade", had to settle for the Grammy Award for "best album of contemporary urban music".

The Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, which hands out the awards, had once again been accused of relegating artists of color to the background.

The evening, hosted by South African comedian Trevor Noah, opened with a performance by the prince of Puerto Rican reggaeton Bad Bunny, one of the most commercially successful artists in the world in 2022. Nominated in three categories, he won a gramophone.
