Here Are The 2023 Grammys Winners

Kevin Winter/Getty Images for The Recording Academy

It’s the 65th Annual Grammy Awards!

This year, music’s biggest night™ is being held at the Arena in Los Angeles. We’re here to run down all the winners as they’re awarded. After a tumultuous 2022 featuring several COVID-related postponements and some nomination gaffes, the lead-up to this award show has been a relatively quiet one.

But we’re still left with a burning questions: Will the Beyhive revolt if Beyoncé fails to pick up any of the Big Four awards? While she’s tied with her husband Jay-Z for the most Grammy nominations of all time (88!), she’s only won once in the all-genre major categories despite 13 nominations.

In the premiere ceremony, Spoon, Machine Gun Kelly, and Turnstile all failed to become first-time winners after managing to become first-time nominees. But Viola David managed to reach EGOT status with a win for Best Audio Book.

Tonight’s ceremony is once again being hosted by Trevor Noah. It will feature performances from Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Steve Lacy, Lizzo, Sam Smith and Kim Petras, Brandi Carlile, Stevie Wonder, and more. Tribute performances are planned for Loretta Lynn, Christine McVie, and Takeoff. And the Recording Academy has gotten together a large crew to celebrate the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, among them LL Cool J, Big Boi, Busta Rhymes, Spliff Star, De La Soul, and many, many more.

And occasionally between all that, awards will be handed out! Beyoncé leads this year’s pack of nominees with nine total, followed by Kendrick Lamar with eight, and seven apiece for Adele and Brandi Carlile. We ran down some surprises, snubs, and takeaways from this year’s nominations, and we decreed who should win and who will win tonight’s awards.

The bulk of the awards were handed out at the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony, which started at 3:30PM ET. The official broadcast begins at 8PM on CBS and Paramount+. On Saturday night, Nirvana, the Supremes, Nile Rodgers, and more received lifetime achievement awards at a Special Merits ceremony on Saturday night.

We’ll be updating this post all day as the results come in. Check below for the eventual winners in a selection of notable categories (the exhaustive list is at and come say hi in the comment section (or on our members-only Discord!) if you are watching along with us.
