NEW YORK — It may be a night to the history books for Taylor Swift and Beyoncé in Sunday’s Grammy Awards — for both good and bad motives.
Swift could eventually become the first girl to win the show’s top trophy, record of this year, three occasions. Her first surprise record of 2020 — that the folky, alternative experience”folklore” — is competing for the top honour, an award she won in 2010 for”Fearless,” her breakthrough which helped establish her as a bona fide pop star even though she sang country songs.
Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra and Paul Simon are a few of the male actors who’ve won record of the year three times. Producers or engineers also have won the award three times, such as Phil Ramone, Ryan Tedder, David Foster, Bob Ludwig, Serban Ghenea and many others.
The only man to win the trophy four occasions is dominating engineer Tom Coyne, who expired in 2017.
Beyoncé hasn’t won record of the year during her career — she is not up for the honour this season since she did not launch a job through the eligibility period — she is the most nominated action. Together with 24 wins and nine nominations this season, she can transcend Alison Krauss’ 27 wins and be the most decorated woman in Grammys history.
Beyoncé’s”Black Parade” scored nominations for example song and record of this year also as finest R&B tune and best R&B functionality, while her guest appearance on Megan Thee Stallion’s”Savage” earned bids for album of the year, best rap performance and greatest rap song.
Beyoncé retains the record for most Grammy nominations for a female behave, together with 79. She also Paul McCartney tie for second place among all Grammy nominees, just behind Quincy Jones and Jay-Z, who’ve made 80 nods each.
The royal household of audio could walk off with a range of wins to get their house. Jay-Z co-wrote”Black Parade” and”Savage,” making him nominations for tune of the year, greatest R&B song and best rap tune. He’s won 22 Grammys during his career.
Ivy Carter provides a vocal performance on the tune and looks in the movie; she’s also recorded as a co-writer of this tune with Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
Ivy Carter, 9, may eventually become the next youngest man to ever win a Grammy. Leah Peasall was when The Peasall Sisters won record of the year in the 2002 series for their look to the T Bone Burnett-produced”O Brother, Where Art Thou?” soundtrack.
While Beyoncé might have a historical night, history can repeat itself and she might be closed from winning a top award — a frequent event for R&B and rap artists during Grammy history. Of her 24 wins, just one was for one of those large four Grammys, tune of this year.
Jay-Z hasn’t won a top awardwinning, and he and his wife unite a listing of largely Black actors who’ve been limited to wins at the rap and R&B groups, such as Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Eminem, Drake, Missy Elliott, Mary J. Blige and much more.
This season The Weeknd was the person who was snubbed. Despite getting the largest hit of 2020 using”Blinding Lights” and also a top-selling, multi-hit record, he did not make any nominations. He has won three Grammys up to now — just at the R&B classes — but he has pledged to boycott the Grammys since he does not agree with the way the Recording Academy chooses its own winners.
Though rap has become the most popular genre now, no rap books scored a nomination for the best award this season. A rap song wasn’t given song of this year or recording of this year before Childish Gambino made background in 2019 with”This Is America.”
Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion’s”Savage” may turn into the next hip-hop tune to acquire album of this year.
Megan Thee Stallion may become the first female rapper to acquire best rap tune. The Houston rapper, together with D Smoke, Chika and Doja Cat, could become the first time rap-based action to acquire best new artist. Their competition includes Phoebe Bridgers, Noah Cyrus, Kaytranada and Ingrid Andress, that would turn out to be only the fourth action from state music to triumph.
Other girls who might make history Sunday comprise Grace Potter, that has the prospect of becoming the first female actor to win greatest rock album in over 2 years, along with sister trio HAIM, the very first all-female stone band nominated for record of the year.
Although 84 awards will be handed out — approximately 10 throughout the live telecast along with the remainder throughout the pre-ceremony — audiences are probably seeing for its performances.
Trevor Noah will sponsor the series, which airs at 8 pm Eastern on CBS and Paramount+. The Grammys were initially scheduled for Jan. 31 but had been pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
