Last night in Los Angeles, the 65th Annual Grammy Awards returned to the Arena for the first time in three years. Hosted for the third time in a row by comedian and now-former host of The Daily Show Trevor Noah, the Recording Academy celebrated pivotal musical institutions and cultures while crowning the next generations and opening up the record books.

The historic moment of the night arrived during the presentation of Best Dance/Electronic Recording, of all places. James Corden had the honor of bestowing Beyoncé with her 32nd Grammy, making her the record-holder for most wins as she edged out conductor Georg Solti.

That win, however, along with decisive victories by Lizzo for Record Of The Year (“About Damn Time”) and a shocking Bonnie Raitt victory for Song Of The Year (“Just Like That”) set up a series of dominos that would topple the Album Of The Year trophy into Harry Styles‘ lap for his chart-busting smash-hit album Harry’s House.

Many both online and in attendance weren’t happy about the Beyoncé AOTY snub—the latest in a long line of disappointments from the Academy, even for the person with the most Grammys in history. During Styles’ apathetic acceptance speech, the former One Directioner seemed to be running on empty all night, shouts of “get off the stage” and “Beyoncé should’ve won” rang out from the crowd, with The Case for Cancel Culture author Ernest Owens even tweeting a video of himself yelling the latter while Styles was at the podium.

But there was also a lot to be happy about in the 2023 Grammy Awards. Though the Recording Academy has had a tangled history of giving hip-hop the recognition it deserves, the governing body made the right move by instead passing the mic to Questlove and The Roots to curate a celebration of the genre’s 50th anniversary. The high point of the evening across the board, the medley celebrating half a century of rap featured over two dozen songs connecting DJ Kool Herc‘s 1973 “Back to School Jam” all the way to current stars Lil Uzi Vert and GloRilla in about 13 minutes.

With The Roots as the backing band and LL Cool J as host, the tribute began with Grandmaster Flash and moved through the decades, including cameos from Run-DMCDJ Jazzy JeffSalt-N-PepaPublic Enemy‘s Flava Flav and Chuck DScarfaceIce-TMethod Man, Queen LatifahOutKast‘s Big BoiToo $hort, Missy Elliott, a breathless verse from “Look at Me Now” by Busta RhymesLil Baby, GloRilla, and ending with Lil Uzi Vert. The only thing to rival the seemingly never-ending stream of talent appearing onstage was regular cuts to Jay-Z rapping along through the decades and having a ball in the audience for everyone at home.

There was still more celebration in store, as Stevie WonderSmokey Robinson, and Chris Stapleton led a tribute to Motown Records founder Berry Gordy and Robinson himself, both recognized as MusiCares Persons of the Year. With Wonder leading the way and tuxedo-clad boy band WanMor shimmying to “The Way You Do The Things You Do”, the infectious Motown grooves captured artists throughout the Arena from Taylor Swift to Flava Flav. Smokey shared vocals with Stevie on “Tears of a Clown” before Stapleton crossed over from country to R&B to deliver a blistering guitar solo on the closing “Higher Ground” while adding his pipes to the savory vocal lyrical stew.

Next to The Roots’ tribute to hip-hop, the grandest cultural celebration was actually the opening performance as Bad Bunny brought Puerto Rico to Los Angeles. Leading off with the biggest star of the show and arguably one of the biggest in the world, Bad Bunny processed through the aisles trailed by plena dancers and musicians.

As cabezudos—figures with giant heads common at Puerto Rican celebrations—mingled in the crowd, Bad Bunny seamlessly transitioned from “El Apagón” to the bombastic mambo of “Después De La Playa”. The grandiose opening would prove a preview of things to come as the Academy celebrated the diverse array of cultures that make up the modern musical ecosystem.

While the Grammys, and award shows in general, are often a garish night of industry back-patting, Sunday’s event had an air of inclusivity that actually gave the presentation meaning at points. Kim Petras made history as the first transgender woman to take home Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and immediately proceeded to melt conservative Twitter with an “Unholy” performance of the track alongside her collaborator and LGBTQ+ icon Sam Smith.

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” Petras said backstage of the viral performance. “So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live, because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim.”

You can’t talk about positivity without talking about Lizzo. As Noah, who finally found his groove the third time around, put it, “She’s like if dopamine was a person.” After an inspiring, gospel-infused performance of “Special”, hopefully Lizzo feels that we all do hear her though.

Amidst these celebrations and milestones, the Recording Academy also shone its light on the stars of tomorrow. Introduced by his old boss from the bar he used to bounce at in Boone, NC, rising country star Luke Combs made his Grammy debut with his performance of “Going, Going, Gone”. The singer-songwriter who only two years ago came under fire for his past appearances with a Confederate flag went 0-3 on awards last night, but showed up polished and poised for future Grammy appearances.

“Bad Habit” singer/guitarist Steve Lacy also made his Grammy debut with a performance of his hit single featuring bassist Thundercat. While the track from Gemini Rights—which took home Best Progressive R&B Album—became a radio staple over the summer, the Internet guitarist went beyond the single to show off his vocal range with some ad-libbing, as well as giving Cat the space to do his thing on an instrumental breakdown.

As the Recording Academy welcomed these faces, it also said goodbye to those it lost. A multi-faceted In Memoriam segment began with Kacey Musgraves performing “Coal Miner’s Daughter” on Loretta Lynn‘s guitar. The segment was broken up stylistically, with a portion devoted to instrumentalists soundtracked by the music of Jeff Beck. Quavo led an emotional tribute to slain Migos rapper Takeoff with a choir-assisted performance of “Without You”. A brief tribute to David Crosby then led into the crescendo of the memorial as Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, and Mick Fleetwood honored Christine McVie with Fleetwood Mac‘s “Songbird”.

And of course, there were the awards themselves. Lots of familiar faces took home trophies on Sunday, with Brandi Carlile (the ceremony’s second-most nominated artist behind Beyoncé) taking home three Grammys for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song (“Broken Horses”) and Best Americana Album (In These Silent Days). Kendrick Lamar‘s Mr. Morale And The Big Steppers was crowned Best Rap Album while Robert Glasper‘s Black Radio III was named Best R&B Album.

Newly-retired Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne scored wins for Best Rock Album (Patient Number 9) and Best Metal Performance (“Degradation Rules”). Nonagenarian icon Willie Nelson nabbed Best Country Album (A Beautiful Time) and Best Country Solo Performance for his tribute to Jerry Jeff Walker (“Live Forever”).

Newcomer Molly Tuttle took home Best Bluegrass Album (Crooked Tree) while Snarky Puppy kept its perfect streak alive by winning Best Contemporary Instrumental Album (Empire Win), the band’s fifth career win out of five nominations. Further on down the list, the Grateful Dead‘s In and Out of the Garden: Madison Square Garden ’81 ’82 ’83 archival release was dubbed Best Boxed Set or Limited Edition Package.
