Si è svolta all’insegna dei trionfi in rosa, con un tris di vittorie al femminile per.. Taylor Swift, premiata con “Folklore” come “album of the year”.. Billie Eilish, insignita del “record of the year” per “Everything I Wanted” e del titolo di “best song written for visual media” per la sua “No Time to Die”.. quindi Beyoncè, arrivata al record di ben 28 grammofoni complessivi conquistati, con gli ultimi riconoscimenti ottenuti per la “best R&B performance” e “best RAP performance”, rispettivamente con “Black Parade” e “Savage”.. ma soprattutto il “Best Music Video” raggiunto con la figlioletta Blue Ivy in “Brown Skin Girl”.. l’edizione 2021 dei “Grammys”, presentata la scorsa notte al loro 63esimo appuntamento sempre da Los Angeles in una cerimonia più contenuta a causa delle restrizioni da “coronavirus”.

Dal vivo si è esibito, nell’eccezionale opening su “Watermelon Sugar”, Harry Styles.. per una sera riunito nel contesto ravvicinato e più ovattato proprio alla Swift (che a sua volta ha fatto ascoltare “Cardigan”).. ed anche omaggiato per la stessa canzone introduttiva con la corona di “best pop solo performance”.. ma hanno avuto soddisfazioni anche.. Dua Lipa, on stage per la nuova “Levitating” e scelta come “best pop vocal album” per “Future Nostalgia”.. ed il duo, sempre di donne, Lady Gaga ed Ariana Grande, premiato con la “best performance pop” grazie al successo di “Rain On Me”.
