After building the suspense, announcing the nominations, and the criticism, Grammys 2021 have finally happened. The awards night took place on the evening of March 14 (March 15 in India), and it surely was a starry affair. From marvellous performances to the global favourites bagging the Grammy titles, the night had so much going on. The awards honoured musical artistes, compositions, and albums across 84 categories, and comedian and talk show host Trevor Noah hosted the ceremony this year.

The ceremony was initially planned for January but the delay caused by the pandemic did not diminish the enthusiasm for the Grammy Awards 2021. The night started on a high note, with Harry Styles opening the ceremony with his performance. This was followed by a musical concourse put up by artists like Taylor Swift, Cardi B, Bad Bunny, Post Malone, Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, Miranda Lambert, and Megan Thee Stallion. Beyoncé was the leading contender with nine nominations, and she created history by taking away her 28th Grammy Award, and broke the record for the most Grammy wins ever by a female artiste and most Grammy wins ever by a singer. 

Styles also won his first ever Grammy for Watermelon Sugar, while Eilish and her brother Finneas won the best song written for visual media Grammy award for their James Bond theme song from the unreleased Bond Movie, titled No Time to Die. It is for the first time in the history of the Grammys that a track from an unreleased film bagged the award.
