Who Had The Best Music of The Year? Here Are The 63rd Grammy Award Winners

today15 March 2021

Background

Since its inception in 1959, the Grammy awards has become, arguably, the biggest celebration of music in the industry. Winning a Grammy can be seen as the epitome of making it in the industry. The annual ceremony is lavish to say the least, almost always featuring spectacular performances by the hottest artists of the time. The 63rd Grammy Awards, hosted by ‘The Daily Show’ host and comedian Trevor Noah, is no exception. Despite the hiccups (*ahem*over nomination choices*ahem*), there is no putting a stop to the night’s extravaganza! Now, who has been dubbed the “best” of 2020? To kick it off, at only 9 years old, Blue Ivy Carter – daughter of the King (Jay Z) and Queen (Beyoncé) themselves – became the second-youngest Grammy winner for her contributions to mom Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl” video.
