After getting postponed due to the rise of Omicron cases a while ago, The 64th Annual Grammy Awards is finally just a week away! The most prestigious award show will be lining up with a lot of musical greatness that we can't wait to see. Before going deep into the euphoria of it, let's dive back into the most historic moments in Grammys history!

Hamilton goes to Grammys
There's always a first time for everything; from the stage in Staples Center, Grammys gives us a fresh look inside Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City as a Broadway musical comes into the big screen with an electrifying opening performance of "Hamilton'' during the 2016 Grammy Awards. The track later went on to win Best Musical Theater Album and was accepted by the musical's playwright and composer, Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Adele Grammys Sweep
British singer Adele painted a history at the 54th Grammy Awards by snatching six awards, equaling Beyonce's record for the most Grammys won by a female artist in one night. Upon accepting her sixth Grammys, Adele gave a lovely speech and dedicated the awards to Beyoncé. She even split the gold gramophone-shaped trophy into two as she declared that her Album of The Year award belongs to Beyoncé.

BTS as the first Korean pop act to receive a nomination
To help fans overcome a restless time during the early pandemic, the seven-member Korean group BTS who recently took the world by storm, created an English single, "Dynamite." Through "Dynamite'', BTS received their first Grammy nomination under the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category in 2021. BTS members; RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook also posted a video reaction to their nomination announced on Twitter. This year, BTS is nominated for the same category. We wish you all the best, BTS!

Tribute to Kobe Bryant
The 2020 Grammys were held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California-home to the LA Lakers, where Kobe Bryant works his magic as an NBA player. Hours before the show, Kobe and his daughter, Gigi, were reported to die in a helicopter accident. It made the production team revamp the show at the last minute. Alicia Keys threw a tear-jerking speech as she said, "We're literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built." Along with Boyz II Men, she performs a tribute to Kobe with "It's Hard To Say Goodbye." Throughout the entire show, the production team had the idea to light on Kobe's jerseys to commemorate the loss of a hero.

2021: Year of the Woman
Last year, our queen Beyoncé managed to yet again break a Grammy record by bringing home four wins, which adds up to a total of 28 awards in her lifetime, and now holds the record for most Grammy wins by a female artist! Taylor Swift snatched the Album of The Year Awards with "Folklore." and Billie Eilish's "Everything I Wanted" was crowned as 2021's record of the year. Megan Thee Stallion received her first Grammys awards, too! 2021 is truly the year we get to see women in the music industry flourish, and we love to see it (more)! Go, women!

We are ready to welcome more upcoming precious moments in the 64th Annual Grammy Awards! Ready to stream live only on!
