The Grammys took place on January 26th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Red carpet was studded by celebrities from all different types of music. The night to celebrate music was saddened by the loss of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi from a helicopter crash. Many celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra had little details to commemorate him such as a number 24 on their nails. The event celebrated his life with both Lizzo and Alicia Keys announcing him before beginning their set of songs.

The event opened up with Lizzo’s amazing vocals and an orchestra behind her and quickly changed to her famous hit, Truth Hurts, and began playing her flute in her brilliant way. After performing, she won Best Pop Solo Performance for Truth Hurts in which she appeared shocked.

The big winner of the night, however, was Billie Eilish who swept the four biggest prizes at the Grammy Awards — best new artist, record of the year, album of the year and song of the year. She also took home best pop vocal album, for a total of five Grammys. This was a history making night for the 18 year old and she is only getting started.
