The 64th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was held on April 3 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Hosted by Trevor Noah, the evening featured a star-studded red carpet and plenty of amazing moments to remember.

Originally scheduled to take place in January at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, the Grammys were postponed due to the COVID-19 surge – only adding to the event’s anticipation.

This year’s show kicked off at 3:30pm EST with its “Premiere Ceremony,” hosted by Levar Burton. During the pre-telecast, many of the evening’s awards were given out and we saw some of our favorite artists receive their first Grammy, and others added to their long list of achievements.

Jon Batiste won the “Best Music Video” award for his song “Freedom,” Tyler, the Creator took home the Grammy for “Best Rap Album,” Don Cheadle grabbed the “Best Spoken Word Album” for his oration of Carry On: Reflections For A New Generation From John Lewis, and H.E.R. won “Best Traditional R&B Performance” for her song “Fight For You” from the soundtrack of Judas and the Black Messiah.

The “Premiere Ceremony” also saw Jazmine Sullivan and Lucky Daye won their first Grammy awards for “Best R&B Performance” (which she shared with Silk Sonic) and “Best Progressive R&B Album,” respectively. In what was a beautiful moment, Summer of Soul won the Grammy for “Best Music Film,” and the parties involved were able to make an amazing speech and truly celebrate their achievement.

At 8:00 pm, the main event began. With Noah as its master of ceremonies, the evening featured performances from Lil Nas X, Jon Batiste, H.E.R., Nas, John Legend, Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom, Jr. and more. This year’s awards show was surely one to remember.

Below is a list of some of the biggest and best moments from the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.
