Here's Who Took Home Awards

As The Shade Room previously reported, the 66th Annual Grammy Awards intended to include “various updates” to make the ceremony “more fair, transparent and accurate.” One of those updates included adding a Best African Music Performance award category.

South African artist Tyla would kick off the evening by taking home this award for her single ‘Water.’ Check out her Grammy look and speech below.



From there, Killer Mike swept the rap categories by taking home Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance.

However, the rapper’s evening and Grammy wins were unfortunately marred by him being taken away in handcuffs amid the award ceremony.

At the time, the cause of the rapper’s arrest remained unclear. But hours later, reports surfaced that the rapper was detained due to an alleged physical altercation with a security guard.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has since corresponded with the rapper, who says he’s all “good” following the incident.

“Over zealous security, but I am good,” he said reportedly via text.”I’m good! Three Grammys good!”


Victoria Monét would take home the Grammy for Best R&B Album with her project, ‘Jaguar II.’

Meanwhile, Lil Durk and J. Cole would take home the Grammy for Best Melodic Rap Performance with ‘All My Life.’

Coco Jones won Best R&B Performance with her single ‘ICU.’


In addition, SZA also took home the Grammy for Best R&B Song with her hit record ‘Snooze.’

Check out the singer’s emotional acceptance speech below.

Victoria Monét would also take home the Grammy for Best New Artist. According to, Monét is now the oldest solo artist to win the accolade. She reportedly is 34 years old, and the record was previously held by Sheryl Crow, who took home the award at 33 years old in 1994, per

Here's Who Shut Down The Stage

The night kicked off with a sizzling performance from SZA, who performed various singles from her recent album, ‘SOS.’ Additionally, the project also took home the Grammy for Best Progressive R&B Album.

Fantasia would later take to the stage with an exuberant performance of the late Tina Tuner’s 1971 single, ‘Proud Mary.’

The 39-year-old’s performance elicited overwhelming reactions.

Instagram user @_theqlife wrote.
“Fantasia performed this song during her American Idol audition and is now performing it at the Grammys in honor of Tina Turner. You can’t help but be inspired by her story! #LEGENDARY 🔥”
While Instagram user @kissmyaggie added.
