Nella notte americana si sono tenuti i Grammy Awards 2021, gli annuali riconoscimenti musicali.

Una cerimonia sobria, in parte virtuale e in parte in presenza, che ha visto un dominio al femminile nelle categorie principali: da Billie Eilish (premiata per il Record of the Year con everything i wanted) a Taylor Swift (vincitrice dell’album dell’anno con folklore) fino a Beyoncé che, portandosi a casa ben 4 premi, è entrata nella storia dei Grammy con 28 riconoscimenti in carriera.

Tra presentatori d’eccezione e performance live, poi, la serata ha visto trionfare anche Dua Lipa nella categoria Best Pop Vocal Album per il suo Future Nostalgia, Fiona Apple come Best Rock Performance e Best Alternative Album per Fetch the Bolt Cutters e KAYTRANADA come Best Dance Recording e Best Dance/Electronic Album grazie al disco BUBBA.
