Beyonce got tearful as she thanked her husband, children, and late gay uncle as she broke the all time record for most wins ever with 32 at the 65th Grammy Awards after arriving fashionably late to a night where Adele and Lizzo also won big but it was Harry Styles who shocked by scooping up the top honor.

The 41-year-old A-lister had missed her previous wins and even the star-studded red carpet but she did not miss the milestone moment where she took home her 32nd gold gramophone trophy at the gala event held at the Crypto.com Center in Los Angeles, California.

The stunner – who earned four trophies total – tried to stop her tears as she expressed her gratitude toward her loved ones as she said: ‘Thank you so much. I’m trying not to be too emotional. And I’m trying to just receive this night. I want to thank god for protecting me. Thank you, god. I’d like to thank my uncle Jonny, who’s not here. But he’s here in spirit.’

She looked gorgeous as ever as she sported a dazzling silver dress and finished her speech by saying: ‘I’d like to thank my parents, my father, my mother, for loving me and pushing me. I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children who are at home watching. 

‘I’d like to thank the queer community for your love. And for inventing this genre. God bless you. Thank you so much to the Grammys. Thank you.’

Beyonce had previously dedicated her album Renaissance to her late gay uncle Johnny as she called him her ‘godmother’ and ‘the first person to expose me to a lot of the music and culture that serve as inspiration for this album.’ 

Earlier in the night the 41-year-old A-lister was not in attendance at the event as she was announced as the winner of Best R&B Song bringing her to total of 31 wins and tying the original record.

Host Trevor Noah explained Beyonce’s absence as he said: ‘So, for real, Beyonce is on her way. But you know the upside of hosting the Grammys in L.A. Is that everyone can be here. The downside of hosting in L.A. Is the traffic.’ 

Music legend Nile Rodgers ended up accepting the honor on Beyonce’s behalf as he was one of the writers on the hit track alongside Nova Wav, Morten Ristorp, Raphael Saadiq and The-Dream.

The Queen Bey beat out stiff competition including: Jazmine Sullivan – Hurt Me So Good, Mary J. Blige – Good Morning Gorgeous, Muni Long – Hrs & Hrs, and PJ Morton – Please Don’t Walk Away.

Beyonce did eventually show up about half an hour later as host Trevor place her shiny new gold gramophone trophy on her table and said:  ‘Welcome back to the Grammys, everybody. You know, when you equal a record, there’s no way you get to hold your Grammy in your hand and celebrate that. 

‘And the queen is officially in ladies and gentlemen, Beyonce Knowles. Thank you so much. I was shocked to find out that traffic could stop you. I thought you traveled through space and time, but I’m glad that you could be with us right.’ She also earned two more even before the telecast began as she won Best Traditional R&B Performance for Plastic Off The Sofa and Best Dance/Electronic Recording for Break My Soul before the awards show aired live coast-to-coast. 

The wins put her at 31 Grammys throughout her storied career which leaves her tied with late orchestral conductor Sir Georg Solti, who won 31 in total before he passed in 1997, and one to earn the all-time record.

Despite a triumphant night, the Queen Bey was unable to secure a win in the elusive Album Of The Year category as she lost out once again on the biggest prize of the night to Harry Styles.

The 29-year-old British singer  won for his album Harry’s House as he beat an impressive field of ten total including ABBA – Voyage, Adele – 30, Bad Bunny – Un Verano Sin Ti, Beyoncé – Renaissance, Brandi Carlile – In These Silent Days, Coldplay – Music of the Spheres, Kendrick Lamar – Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, Lizzo – Special, and Mary J. Blige – Good Morning Gorgeous (Deluxe).

The pop star was shocked as he accepted the top prize and said: ‘Um, man. I’ve been so, so inspired by every artist in this category with me. At a lot of different times in my life, I listened to everyone in this category when I’m alone. And I think like on nights like tonight, it’s obviously so important for us to remember that there is no such thing as bests in music.

‘I don’t think any of us sit in the studio thinking making decisions based on what is going to get us one of these. This is really, really kind. I’m so, so grateful. I’m going to pass it over to my collaborators who are — I’m just so this doesn’t happen to people like me very often. And this is so, so nice. Thank you very, very much.’

Earlier in the night, Harry beat out heavy competition including Adele and Lizzo as he earned the first award of the night at the star-studded event. 

He earned Best Pop Vocal Album for his third solo album Harry’s House at the star-studded event.

The As It Was hitmaker beat out ABBA – Voyage, Adele – 30, Coldplay – Music of the Spheres, and Lizzo – Special.

Styles kept his acceptance speech short and sweet as he said: ‘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.’

Adele earned her one Grammy Award on the night in the Best Pop Solo Performance category for smash hit track Easy On Me.

The 34-year-old hitmaker triumphed over Bad Bunny – Moscow Mule, Doja Cat – Woman, Harry Styles – As It Was, Lizzo – About Damn Time, and Steve Lacy – Bad Habit.

She clearly did not expect to win as she said: ‘Oh, thank you. I really was just looking forward to coming tonight. I just want to dedicate this to my son Angelo.

I love a piano balad with it. Love you all. I love you. Good night!’

Lizzo was one of the biggest winners of the night as she earned the coveted Record Of The Year gong for smash hit About Damn Time.

The 34-year-old Minnesota native beat out a very impressive and packed field including ABBA – Don’t Shut Me Down, Adele – Easy on Me, Beyoncé – Break My Soul, Brandi Carlile Featuring Lucius – You and Me on the Rock, Doja Cat – Woman, Harry Styles – As It Was, Kendrick Lamar – The Heart Part 5, Mary J. Blige – Good Morning Gorgeous, and Steve Lacy – Bad Habit.

‘Okay. Now that I’m up here and I’m calm, I want to dedicate this award to Prince. When we lost prince, I decided to dedicate my life to making positive music. And I was like I don’t care if my positivity bother you, what’s wrong with you? And this was at a time when positive music and feel-good music wasn’t mainstream at that point,’ she said.

‘I felt very misunderstood. I felt on the outside looking in. But I stayed true to myself because I wanted to make the world a better place so I had to be that change to make the world better place,’ she said to applause.

‘And now I look around, and there’s all these songs that are about loving our bodies and feeling comfortable in our skin and feeling good! And I’m just so proud to be a part of it. Because in a world where there’s a lot of darkness and a lot of — I’d like to believe that not only can people do good, but we just are good.

The three-time Grammy-winning singer, 34, hit the stage in a busty black mini dress with sparkling crystals, metallic boots, and a chunky silver cross around her neck. 

She performed About Damn Time — which also won her the Record of the Year Grammy — and Special, the title track from her fourth studio album.

Lizzo — who earlier graced the red carpet in a dramatic orange Dolce & Gabbana dress with a plunging neckline — brought church vibes with her, as a choir assisted the singer in flexing her vocals for the crowd.

She also brought her trademark positivity, singing to the crowd: ‘In case nobody told you today / You’re special / In case nobody made you believe / You’re special / Well, I will always love you the same / You’re special.’

Another memorable performance of the night was Harry Styles, 29, who put on a very energetic performance of his hit song As It Was.

Olivia Wilde’s ex-boyfriend took the stage after winning for best pop vocal album for Harry’s House.

The British singer rocked out the crowd in a metallic fringe jumpsuit as he jumped around the stage on a huge turntable.

While Styles shimmered in his eye-popping outfit, the backup dancers that surrounded him were clad in regular street clothes.

Sam Smith, 30, and Kim Petras, 30, were introduced to the stage by Madonna, who prefaced their controversial performance by saying: ‘Are you ready for a little controversy?’ 

The Queen of Pop went on: ‘So, here’s what I’ve learned after four decades in music. If they call you shocking, scandalous, troublesome, problematic, provocative, or dangerous, you are definitely onto something.’ 

‘I’m here to give thanks to all the rebels out there forging a new path and taking the heat for all of it,’ she said, right before Smith and Petras took the stage for their hit duet song, ‘Unholy.’

Smith — who goes by they/them pronouns — then performed a choreographed routine in the middle of dancers clad in hellish red-outfits while the singer wore a devil horn top hat.

Busty: The three-time Grammy-winning singer, 34, hit the stage in a busty black mini dress with sparkling crystals, metallic boots, and a chunky silver cross around her neck
