2023 Grammy wrap-up and your burning questions answered

Blah, blah, blah Beyonce. Blah, blah, blah Harry Styles. A full list of winners here. Now some other pieces of news from last night’s awards show.

Taylor Hawkins wasn’t included in the show’s in memoriam segment. Why?

Because he was included last year. The Grammys were delayed until March because of COVID confusion, so the show ran a few days after he died.

Wait. Nirvana showed up?

Most of them. Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear reunited to accept a special merit award.

Beyonce was late. Was she being a diva?

She set some sort of Grammy record for the most wins ever–but she was late to show up to the Grammys at Crypto.com Arena. She says she was stuck in traffic and not being a diva.

Fans are “confused” by Madonna’s “new face.” What does that mean?

That doesn’t look like the Madonna I remember, either.

Who all appeared in the hip-hop tribute?

Here’s a full list.
