Dua Lipa won Best Pop Vocal Album for Future Nostalgia at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards. This marks her second career GRAMMY win and first win of the evening.

Beyoncé was also part of another historic moment – when Megan Thee Stallion became the first female artist to bag the best rap song award.

BTS took over the 2021 GRAMMYs stage as they closed out the show their inescapable feel-good hit, “Dynamite”.

The song’s title is indicative of the boy band’s career trajectory, carving out a place in history when “Dynamite” became the first chart-topper by an all-South Korean act. All seven members rose to the celebratory occasion as they transformed Seoul, Korea into a spot-on replica of downtown Los Angeles since they couldn’t attend the ceremony.

Hosted by Trevor Noah, the show kicked off with three back-to-back performances from Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Haim, who performed from a circle of stages that recalled the set-up of Jools Holland’s BBC TV show.

Styles raised the curtain with his hit single Watermelon Sugar, sporting a lime green feather boa and an open-chested leather jacket.

The majority of the ceremony was held in a marquee outside the LA Convention Center, with nominees sitting at socially-distanced tables.
