Mr. Nimbus | 04/04/2022

Olivia Rodrigo, Silk Sonic and Jon Batiste were the big winners at the 2022 Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The 19-year-old pop sensation won Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album for her debut album Sour, and Best Pop Solo Performance for her debut single Drivers License.

R&B duo Silk Sonic, made up of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, won two of the night’s biggest prizes – Record of the Year and Song of the Year – for Leave the Door Open as well as Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song.

Batiste, who led this year’s nominations, was the biggest winner overall, taking home five accolades, including Album of the Year for We Are.

Foo Fighters also won multiple awards, including Best Rock Album for Medicine at Midnight, Best Rock Song for Waiting on a War, and Best Rock Performance for Making a Fire.

The band had been scheduled to perform at the event but pulled out following the recent death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins. The late musician was honoured with a tribute montage set to the band’s track My Hero.

Rodrigo, Silk Sonic and Batiste also performed during the evening, which also featured performances by Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, BTS, Justin Bieber, and Lil Nas X, among others.
