This year Grammy’s were great despite COVID-19 limitations. Here are the best memes and tweets of the night.
After many COVID-19 related postponements and reworkings, the Grammys aired last night and went off without a hitch. In fact, it was one of the smoothest awards shows to be produced in the COVID era, one that worked especially hard to prevent us from feeling like we were watching a video conference.
Pandemic limitations resulted in a show that was tighter and more intimate, with no live audience to perform for. instead, this year’s awards show had performers share the stage and cheer each other on. Among the night’s highlights, it’s important to note that all major awards were won by women and that the Academy tried to highlight the injustices present in the music industry and the weight of the past year.
Other highlights include: the spotlight of musical venues across the country that have taken a hard blow due to COVID-19; references to Black Lives Matter protests; Megan Thee Stallion being a clear winner in everything; Beyoncé breaking Grammy records; Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s performance of a censored version of WAP; and lots of memes. (If you missed the show, here’s a complete list of winners and nominees.)
Here are some of the best of the night:
