On March 14, the 63rd annual Grammy awards took place, but they were not the typical award ceremony we were used to seeing. Despite the fact that there was a global pandemic shutting down the world, they made the ceremony possible by keeping it outside with limited people inviting nominees only. 

   

Some of the more noteworthy awards included “Everything I Wanted” by Billie Eilish for Record of the Year and “Folklore” by Taylor Swift took Album of the Year. Song of the year was “I Can’t Breathe” by Dernst Emile II, beating out songs “The Box” and “Circles.” 

 

There were also a few unpopular awards according to the public. “People will die knowing that ‘Savage’ by Megan Thee Stallion won rap song of the year for 2021, and that doesn’t sit right with me,” said senior Cam Rooney. 

 

Cam brings up solid points though considering the fact that the Grammys have never been voted for by the people but only by anonymous critics that speak for everyone. 

 

Grammy performances included Cardi B, Dababy, Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Lil Baby, Post Malone, and Doja Cat. Despite the pandemic, the Grammys were nothing short of what watchers would typically expect, with well-rounded popular performers and awards for America’s greatest recording artists.
