California: The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards took place this year under the shadow of major tumult at the Recording Academy.
It also began just hours after news broke that NBA legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles.
Despite the somber mood, the stars showed up for a night of performances, Grammy Moments and of course the distribution of the awards themselves. Alicia Keys was reprised her role as sunny host, with performances from Ariana Grande, Rosalía, Demi Lovato and many more.
Billie Eilish swept the top awards of the evening: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist, with her brother and producer Finneas joining her for many of those, and winning a solo award himself for Producer of the Year (Non-Classical). Lizzo and Lil Nas didn’t go home empty-handed, though. Lizzo took home three Grammys, and Lil Nas X, two.
The Grammys were hosted by 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys.
