Beyonce got emotional on stage as she was accepting her 32nd Grammy record-breaking award to ever get throughout her storied career. This made her surpass the late orchestra conductor, Sir Georg Solti who won 31 in total before he passed in 1997. 

Earlier that night, Beyonce was not in attendance at the event, as she was announced the winner of Best R&B Song, bringing her to a total of 31 wins. 

Music legend Nile Rodgers ended up accepting the honor on Beyonce's behalf as he was one of the writers of the hit tracks. Queen Bey was up against tight competition, which included: Jazmine Sullivan's - hurt me so good, Mary J - Blige's - good morning gorgeous, Muni long - hrs & hrs, and PJ Mortan's - Please don't walk away. 

Beyonce did eventually show up half an hour later as host Trevor placed her shiny new gold gramophone trophy on her table and said, ' Welcome back to the Grammys. He continued by saying, ' I was shocked traffic could stop you. I thought you traveled through space and time, but I'm glad you could be here with us right now.'

She also earned two more even before the show 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.  

She 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.'

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'.

Despite this victorious night, Queen Bey was unable to secure a win in the elusive Album Of The Year category as she lost out on one of the biggest prizes of the night to Harry Styles.

The 29-year-old British singer won for his album Harry's House as he beat his competitors who included: 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 the bests in music.
