When Davis announced Cuff It won, Trevor Noah took to the stage to reveal why Beyonce isn’t there yet: she’s stuck in traffic.
‘Beyonce, thanks, y’all. All right, all right, all right. So, for real, Beyonce is on her way. But you know the upside of hosting the Gin L.A. is that everyoe can be here. The downside of hosting in L.A. Is the traffic. Beyonce is on her way,’ Noah said.
He added, ‘And just for reference, Beyonce has now equalled the record for most Grammys of an individual of all time.’
After two hit performances, Jennifer Lopez took to the stage to present the first award of the night, Best Vocal Pop Album.
Harry Styles won for his album Harry’s House, beating out ABBA’s Voyage, Adele, Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres and Lizzos’ Special.
Harry accepted the award with a brief speech, beginning ‘Thank you so much. This album, from start to finish, has been the greatest experience of my life.’
‘For making it with two of my best friends, to playing it for people has been the greatest joy I could have asked for. So, I want to thank rob, Jeffrey, Tommy Tom Tom Tyler, and everyone who inspired this album, everyone, all my friends who supported me through it. Thank you so much. I wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you so much,’ he concluded.

He went on to praise Beyonce, who, ‘took it up another level’ with her new album Renaissance, joking the lyrics to Break My Soul actually made him quit his own job.
He also praised Lizzo as the world’s most famous flute player, joking, she was, ‘the most famous flute player in the world since I’m sure there were others — but you know what I mean.’
He also introduced Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to hit singer Adele before the next performance.
