Must List

Everything you missed from the 2024 Grammy Awards

Last night, celebs graced the red carpet (and the arena in Los Angeles) to celebrate the Grammy Awards, aka the biggest night in music. And, tbh, it's kinda got us in our female empowerment feels, bc all of the televised awards were won by women!

If you weren't able to tune in, we've got your back with *everything* you missed (think: amaze performances, gorgeous outfits and, ofc, a few surprises!).

SZA slayed her Grammy performance and took home 3 awards 


One of the best parts about the Grammys is watching all of our fave artists play in an arena packed with our other fave artists. SZA performed "Snooze" in a long black trenchcoat and wide-brimmed hat before jumping into the action-packed scene of "Kill Bill." (Srsly, a dancer holding a sword jumped onto Phoebe Bridger's table before running to the stage and joining the other dancers, also holding swords.) 

In addition to the literally killer performance, SZA was the most nominated artist of the night with nine noms! She ended up taking three awards home for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best R&B Song and Best Urban Contemporary Album. 

Billie Eilish made us cry during the "What Was I Made For?" performance


We are forever obsessed with both Barbie and Billie, so this performance was a highlight of the night. Billie sang the hit song alongside her brother Finneas. Billie wore a green dress with a pink scarf over her head (the outfit was actually a replica of the 1965 Poodle Parade Babie doll!). And the entire audience gave her a standing ovation.

"What Was I Made For?" won Song of the Year as well as Song Written for Visual Media. We think the Oscars need to learn a thing or two from the Grammys. 

Olivia Rodrigo performed "Vampire" 


Oliva Rodrigo stunned the audience with a captivating performance of her hit single "Vampire," complete with fake blood running down her face and a spooky backdrop. Olivia nailed those high notes wearing a long red dress. 

Our fave homeschooled girl was nominated for six categories including Album of the Year for her sophomore album GUTS.

Victoria Monét wins the coveted Best New Artist Award


This year's nominees for Best New Artists were an impressive group of artists across multiple genres—Noah Kahan, Gracie Abrams and Ice Spice were all in the running. In the end, Victoria Monét pulled out the win. She accepted her award in a beautiful brown corset dress and a gold snake necklace. You may know her from the song "On My Mama" or her collaboration with Ariana Grande "MONOPOLY." 

Victoria's album Jaguar II also won two awards for Best R&B Album and Best Engineered Album.

Taylor Swift became the first person in history to win 4 Album of the Year Awards 


Taylor Swift made history once again at last night's Grammys. She accepted the Album of the Year award for her 10th album Midnights, becoming the first person ever to win four Album of the Year awards. (She even surpassed music legends Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Frank Sinatra with this honor.) 

Aaaaaand if you haven't heard about it by now...Taylor announced that she's releasing a brand new album on April 19 called The Tortured Poets Department. After we spent the last week convinced that she would announce reputation (Taylor's Version), Taylor kept us on our toes by announcing this totally new project. So for the next three months, we'll be trying to guess what the vibes are for this upcoming album. Will there be collabs? Music videos? A whole new era for the Eras Tour? We'll just have to wait and see!
