Germany, March 15: The 63rd edition of the Grammys was historic for Beyonce, who is now the artist with the most trophies.

She now has 28 Grammys, beating singer Alison Krauss’ record – the 28th win went to best R&B performance for Black Parade.

The three big Grammys went to last year’s big winner, Billie Eilish (record of the year for All I Wanted), Taylor Swift (album of the year for folk music), and H.E.R. (Song of the year for I Can’t Breathe).
