After months of delay, the 2021 Grammys finally pushed through this Monday (Sunday evening in Los Angeles), with performances by BTS, Harry Styles, Megan Thee Stallion, and Taylor Swift. Despite major snubs—like The Weeknd, whose most recent record After Hours has been one of the biggest and most critically-acclaimed albums of the past year—the awards show soldiered on with nominations being led by Beyoncé (nine in total, winning four and making her the female artist with the most Grammys). Taylor Swift also made history by becoming the first woman to win Album of the Year three times. 


Check out the list of winners in the major categories below—how did your fave artists do?
