The Grammy Awards, described as “music’s biggest night,” commenced in Los Angeles, and Kylie Minogue experienced early success by winning her second Grammy.

Minogue received the award for Best Pop Dance Recording for “Padam Padam,” marking her first Grammy win in 18 years. Billie Eilish and Finneas also arrived early to collect their trophy for Best Song Written for Visual Media, awarded for their Barbie ballad “What Was I Made For.”

“This is shocking to me,” Eilish said. “I was expecting to turn right back around and leave.”

“I want to thank our parents, our dad, who worked as a construction worker at Mattel Corporation for much of our childhood to keep food on the table,” Finneas said.

The Beatles won the Grammy for Best Music Video for the animated clip for “I’m Only Sleeping.” The spotlight is expected to be on female nominees, with SZA leading the nominations with nine, followed by Victoria Monét and Bridgers with seven.

Bridgers’ band boygenius, along with Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, Brandy Clark, Batiste, and producer Jack Antonoff, have six nominations each. The soundtrack of the Barbie film, known for its box office success, earned 11 Grammy nominations, including four out of five slots in the Visual Media Song category.

The Grammy Awards present several historic opportunities: If SZA or Janelle Monae wins Album of the Year, it would mark the first time a Black woman has won since Lauryn Hill in 1999. Taylor Swift, if victorious, would break the record for the most wins in this category, with four.

Lana Del Rey and Miley Cyrus stand a chance to secure their first Grammy wins. Victoria Monét’s daughter, Hazel, could become the youngest Grammy winner if Monét wins Best Traditional R&B Performance.

Karol G might become the first female artist to win Best Música Urbana Album for “Mañana Será Bonito.” Jack Antonoff has the opportunity to tie Babyface for the most consecutive wins in the Producer of the Year, Non-Classical category with a third win in 2024.
