The Grammy Awards 2024 may be in the books now but our excitement isn’t. Music’s biggest night was truly historical this year with legends stepping onto the stage after decades. Thrilling performances amped up melophiles and sizzling red carpet looks caught the light. Stars who clinched the golden gramophones made the audience laugh, cry and smile with their acceptance speeches.
The 66th Annual Grammy Awards witnessed heart-stopping moments through and through. Here goes the lowdown on the big night that honored music.
And the Award Goes to…Taylor Swift!
Taylor Swift had the best night of her life at the Grammys 2024. The singing star walked home breaking the record of having the most number of Grammys for Album of The Year of any artist. Taylor began the evening by winning the award for Best Pop Vocal Album for her studio album Midnights. At that moment, it was her 13th win at the Grammys.
13 also happens to be her lucky number, so she couldn’t stop herself from commemorating the milestone with another Grammy award. Only this time, it was one of her biggest achievements. Taylor is the only singer who has won 4 Album of The Year Grammys, leaving behind some big names of the music industry: Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon.
Ladies Had All the Fun, and the Awards!
Women dominated the Grammys 2024 profoundly. The majority of the nominees, performers and winners at the awards night were women. The opening act featured an energetic performance from Dua Lipa on her debut song ‘Training Season’. Everyone in the crowd had goosebumps when she danced her heart out on ‘Go on Girl, Give Us Nothing’. Miley Cyrus took up from there as Maria Carey gave the 31-year-old superstar her first ever Grammy for ‘Flowers’.
There were a lot of firsts at the Grammy Awards 2024. Boygenius clinched their first Grammys by winning three of the six Rock categories. Music legend Joni Mitchell stunned everyone with her first performance on the Grammys stage. And of course, Taylor Swift became the first ever artist to be awarded Album of The Year for the fourth time.
Many female artists scored major wins at the awards night, from Taylor Swift to Billie Eillish. The ladies who shined bright at Grammys 2024 also included Victoria Monét (Best R&B Album, Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical and Best New Artist), SZA (Best R&B Song), Tyla (Best African Music Performance) and Lainey Wilson (Best Country Album) among others.
Legends Returning to the Stage
The 66th Annual Grammy Awards marked the comebacks of music legends Tracy Chapman, Billy Joel and Joni Mitchell. When Tracy Chapman joined Luke Combs on stage, we knew she’d get a standing ovation naturally. The singing legend traded off verses from her 1988 classic hit ‘Fast Car’ with the country star. This was her first televised performance after almost a decade and her first appearance on the Grammys stage in 20 years.
Billy Joel also performed on the Grammys stage for the first time in more than two decades. The Piano Man’s debut live performance of ‘Turn the Lights Back On’ mesmerized the audience to the nines. As for Mitchell, the 80-year-old superstar’s touching rendition of ‘Both Sides Now’ filled our hearts with joy.
The Grammy Awards 2024 were even graced by Celine Dion. Everyone rose to their feet and gave a long applause when the Canadian singer took the stage to present the Album of The Year Award to Swift.
Red Carpet Fashion Rose to New Heights
Celebrity red carpet jewelry was right on key at the Grammys 2024. As the stars of the music industry walked on the red carpet, we couldn’t stop ourselves from drooling over their awe-inspiring diamond jewelry and statement pieces.
Below, see a few of the most striking looks from the Grammy Awards 2024.
Miley Cyrus pulled out all the stops to emerge as the most badass fashionista at the Grammys 2024. The hitmaker who finally got a Grammy after years of success sported not one but five different looks on Sunday night. Miley chose a see-through mesh dress for her first look as she stepped on the red carpet. She wore her gold metal mesh dress with matching metal panties and gold heels.
She showed off another sexy look when she took the stage to accept her first award. This time It was a black jumpsuit accessorized with an 18-karat yellow gold bone cuff.
The singer gave a wonderful performance on her Grammy-winning song ‘Flowers’ shortly after receiving her award. Miley rocked the stage dressed in a vintage Bob Mackie fringed bodysuit. Her beautiful moves and princess-cut long drop diamond earrings played with our heartbeats dramatically.
Miley’s drop diamond earrings also existed in perfect harmony with her fourth outfit: a lace bodysuit with a sweetheart neckline and fringe details. She quickly changed her outfit for one last time before coming to the stage to receive her second Grammy. For her final look, she donned a one-shoulder Gucci gown.
She ended her speech with a snappy wisecrack on decking out multiple times. The audience burst out when she said “I don’t think I forgot anyone, but I might’ve forgotten underwear..bye!”.
Monét came dressed for success at the Grammy Awards 2024. Attired in an Atelier Versace gown, the Jaguar II star was honored with three Grammys on Sunday night. We couldn’t take our eyes off her smiley face and the natural diamond necklace that sparkled on her neck.
The style icon’s statement necklace glorified her presence at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards. Dion paired her floor-sweeping Valentino gown with a long coat. Her bling included diamond earrings in platinum, diamond rings, bracelets and a stunning diamond necklace.
Los Angeles’s Crypto.com Arena dazzled on music’s night of the nights when the Barbie singer walked on the red carpet. Dua covered her beauty in a shaggy metallic chainmail gown featuring a bold V neckline and hip cutouts. The most exciting jewel that she wore was a sapphire and diamond necklace.
The platinum and 18K yellow gold piece featured an orange sapphire of over 23 carats, Umba, padparadscha and orange sapphires, rubellites and diamonds. The artistry of the necklace upped the ante. Its contours looked like two fishes sharing a kiss. The three-time Grammy award winner also wore a platinum and 18K yellow gold ring with a Sri Lankan sapphire of over 7 carats and diamonds.
The ‘Dance the Night’ star certainly followed Miley’s footsteps as she had three outfit changes at the Grammy Awards 2024. A revealing strappy leather dress and a black long-sleeved gown comprised her other two looks.
Though Rodrigo didn’t win any trophies this year, she won everyone’s hearts with her smile. The pop star chose her white dress from the 90s archives. Her vintage Versace gown was earlier modeled by Linda Evangelista in 1995. Rodrigo wore mismatched white gold earrings fashioned with rubies and diamonds at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.
The most famous recording artist of the present times quite literally had all the time in the world to take our breath away at the Grammys 2024. The star of the night, Taylor wore the hottest statement piece on the red carpet: a watch choker. The necklace featured a vintage Concord watch embellished with diamonds and framed by four other diamond necklaces. Any guesses what was the time set on the record-breaker’s watch? Yes, midnight! Her jewelry was the talk of the town throughout her presence at the Grammy Awards 2024.
As the host of the show rightly said “There’s a band that has already won today called boygenius, it’s three women. That’s how good a year it is for women.” This year’s Grammys was certainly dedicated to industrious women who redefined music and won awards that were long considered male dominated. Several young female artists showed us that we should make every effort to achieve our dreams.
The ladies also showed us that the best way to attract success is to dress for it. So, do your hair, put on your favorite dress and believe in yourself. As for your sparkle, GemsNY has your back. 😊
