15 Mar 2021: Beyoncé becomes the most awarded female artist in Grammys history

American singer-songwriter Beyoncé has scripted history at the Grammys after winning the best R&B performance for Black Parade. She has now become the most awarded female artist in Grammys history with a total of 28 wins.

She surpassed country singer Alison Krauss, who had previously held the record with 27 wins.

Beyoncé snagged four out of the nine nominations to break the record.

Speech: She reflected on a difficult year

After winning the best R&B performance for Black Parade, Beyoncé reflected on the difficult time the world has had.

"As an artist, I believe it's my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect the time and it's been such a difficult time," she said.

She went on to say that she created the song to honor the world's 'beautiful Black kings and queens.'

Mother-daughter: Beyoncé's nine-year-old daughter Blue Ivy won a Grammy too

Beyoncé's daughter Blue Ivy Carter also created history, alongside her mother, with their Brown Skin Girl win.

She became the second-youngest person to win the award at the age of 9.

Leah Peasall holds the record for youngest Grammys winner, as she was merely 8 when she picked the honor for her work in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou?.

Fact: LeAnn Rimes is the youngest individual winner

To note, American singer LeAnn Rimes is the youngest individual Grammys winner. She won her first two awards in 1997 when she was 14.

Taylor Swift: Taylor Swift also left her mark

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift has created Grammys history too, by winning the 'Album of the Year' for the third time, which only Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, and Paul Simon have done as performers in the past.

Her album Folklore helped Swift win.

Swift, who performed at the ceremony, had previously won the honor for her albums Fearless and 1989.

Major winners: Rapper Meghan Thee Stallion won two Grammys

Besides Beyoncé and Swift, here are some other big wins of the night:

Megan Thee Stallion was named the 'Best New Artist' at the ceremony.

Billie Eilish won 'Record of the Year' for Everything I Wanted.

H.E.R.'s I Can't Breathe won 'Song of the Year.'

Dua Lipa won the 'Best Pop Vocal Album' for Future Nostalgia.
