From Joni Mitchell’s performance to Taylor Swift’s new album release, here are the top five Grammy Awards 2024 moments.

The 2024 Grammy Awards were a star-studded event that took place at the Arena in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Monday morning in India). The biggest night in music history was filled with touching speeches, unexpected announcements, and first-time victories! These are a few of the show’s greatest moments.

For Flower, Miley Cyrus received her first-ever Grammy for best pop solo performance. Mariah Carey, who Miley had asked to stand next to her during her emotional acceptance speech, gave her the award. She declared, “This MC is going to stand by this MC—this is just too iconic.” “I just won my first Grammy!” the singer exclaimed in the middle of the song “Flowers,” which she later performed.

Taylor Swift has a great attention to detail. The pop singer stunned the audience by revealing, in her acceptance speech following her 13th Grammy win for best pop vocal album, that her highly anticipated new album would be released on April 19. “I would like to express my gratitude to the Recording Academy members for their vote. However, I am aware that the Recording Academy’s vote is a clear representation of the ardor of the public,” Swift remarked.

After Tracy Chapman and Luke Combs performed Fast Car at the Grammy Awards, they were met with a standing ovation. The song was written and performed by Tracy in 1988. The song experienced a second comeback after Luke recorded a new version of it in April of last year. A lot of people on X responded very positively to Tracy’s performance. “Tracy Chapman sounds as beautiful as she did the day this song released,” one person commented. Whoa. What a mythology.” Another said, “I started crying when I saw Tracy Chapman receive this standing ovation. In this industry, Black queer women in music are too frequently ignored. It was moving to watch her receive her flowers in this manner.”

In her fifty-year career, Joni Mitchell gave her first-ever Grammy Awards performance. A very touching rendition of Both Sides Now was given by Joni, who won the 2002 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award. Several musicians, including Blake Mills, Lucius, Brandi Carlisle, Sista Strings, Jacob Collier, and Allison Russell, supported her on stage. Additionally, she took home the Grammy for Joni Mitchell at Newport’s Best Folk Album.
