LOS ANGELES — Former “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah led viewers through the 2023 Grammys in its star-studded return to Los Angeles on Sunday.

After the pandemic upended the previous two ceremonies, and last year’s event relocated to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the awards show took over the Crypto.com Arena, its usual home, in front of a full, live audience.

The ceremony was packed with historic moments, from Beyoncé's big record-setting moment, to Kim Petras scoring a trailblazing win for queer history, to hip-hop getting its due with a 50th anniversary tribute.

Here are six standout moments from the Grammys’ return to L.A.

Beyoncé breaks record for most Grammys ever

It’s official: Beyoncé is the Grammy G.O.A.T.


With her win for dance/electronic music album (“Renaissance”), the singer set a new record for the most Grammy wins ever with 32 victories. The record was previously set by orchestra conductor Georg Solti. The audience gave Beyoncé a standing ovation after “Late Late Show” host James Corden presented the award.

“Thank you so much. I’m trying not to be too emotional,” the “Break My Soul” artist said during her tearful acceptance speech, pausing to take a deep breath and holding back tears. “I’m trying to just receive this night.”

She later thanked the queer community “for your love and for inventing this genre,” a nod to the indelible influence of house music on the album. Although her “Renaissance” was considered a front-runner for album of the year, Harry Styles took home the award for “Harry’s House.”
