The 2023 Grammy Awards wrapped up at 8:30 pm, on Feb. 5. Various artists took home awards from the coveted show, earning not only a trophy, but a spot in musical history.

Before the awards began, host and comedian Trevor Noah opened the show with a quick introduction by introducing Adele and The Rock. 

 “Adele, meet The Rock; The Rock, meet Adele. All right, you get acquainted,” Noah said, before continuing the ceremony. 

Taylor Swift was among the winners, taking home a historical win in the Best Music Video category for her 10-minute short film “All Too Well.” She became the first artist to do so with sole credits for the video. 

Viola Davis earned not only a Grammy, but EGOT status, meaning she has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony; she is the third Black woman in history to do so. 

“I wrote this book to honor the 6-year-old Viola — to honor her life, her joy, her trauma, her everything,” Davis said in her acceptance speech. “And it has been such a journey. I just EGOT!”

Harry Styles won the category many in the industry call “the big one,” Album of the Year, for his third solo LP, “Harry’s House. Styles also won the award for Best Pop Vocal Album, taking home two Grammys this award season. 

Kim Petras became the first transgender woman to win an award for Best Pop Duo/Group, a historic win that she expanded on in her acceptance speech. 

I want to thank all the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open for me so I could be here tonight,” Petras said onstage. 

Kendrick Lamar was nominated for eight Grammy awards and won three in the following categories: Rap Album, Song, Rap Song, Record, Rap Performance, Music Video, Album and Melodic Rap Performance.

“First and foremost I want to thank my family, for giving me the courage to have such vulnerability on this album,” Lamar said.
