This Past Grammys marked the 66th Annual Awards Ceremony. It was a night of jaw dropping performances and heartfelt speeches.

Taylor Swift took home a Grammy for her album “Midnights” . She made history by becoming the artist with the most awards for album of the year. Her friend, Lana del Rey, was Taylor’s plus one and joined her on stage. Lana del Rey was also nominated for Album of the Year and Best Alternative Musical Album for “Did you know that there’s a tunnel under ocean Blvd”, which many people think she should have won. 

“Taylor Swift announcing the new album obviously… yeah I wish that Lana got an award”, said Katelyn Mitchell, sophomore. 

The biggest highlight of the Grammys is Taylor Swift announcing her 11th studio album. “The Tortured Poets Department” to be released on April 19, 2024, featuring 16 new tracks including collabs with American Rapper, Post Malone, and indie rock band, Florence and the Machine.  

Another star of the night was Miley Cyrus. Miley wowed the Grammys with her big hair and gold flapper, egyptian goddess inspired dress. She won her first two Grammys, being Best Pop Solo Performance and Record of the Year for “Flowers”. 

That wasn’t the only stunning performance though. SZA sang “Snooze” and “Kill Bill” before running back onstage to receive her award for best R&B song and Best Progressive R&B album. Other performances included “What Was I Made for?” by Billie Eilish from the Barbie movie, “Guts and Vampire” by Olivia Rodrigo and “Training Season” and “Houdini” by Dua Lipa

“I heard SZA won and that’s all I needed to know…did she (Taylor Swift) deserve it? Maybe not as much as SZA… I do think that SZA ate down her outfit!” said August Love, sophomore. 

Lastly was an adorable speech from Boygenius. Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, and Phoebe Bridgers ran on stage in matching white tuxedos and melted the audience’s hearts. The band won their first three Grammys for best rock song, best rock performance and best alternative album. 

From Miley Cyrus to Billie Eilish or SZA and Taylor Swift, women dominated the Grammys this year. It was great to see so many queer and women and women of color claim awards.
