Beyoncé Breaks Record to Become Most Awarded Woman in Grammy History

Beyoncé won her 28th Grammy on Sunday — making her the most-awarded woman in the history of the awards.

The win places her just ahead of former record-holder Alison Krauss.

Classical conductor Sir George Solti still holds the all-time record with 31 Grammys.

She jumped from sixth place among all winners coming into the awards to second place during the prime-time telecast, accepting an award with Megan Thee Stallion for “Savage (Remix)” for best rap song and then one on her own for “Black Parade” for best R&B performance.

She’d won two more earlier in the day, in the pre-telecast premiere ceremony, for “Brown Skin Girl” for best music video and another award with Megan for “Savage.”

“I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world,” she said in accepting the R&B performance award for “Black Parade.”

To her daughter Blue Ivy, credited as a collaborator on the song, she said, “Congratulations, you won a Grammy tonight.”

“I’m honored that you asked me to be a part of the song,” Beyonce told Megan in brief acceptance remarks earlier as they jointly accepted for “Savage.”

That Beyonce and Jay-Z even appeared at the ceremony was a surprise, since she had turned down an opportunity to perform and the couple has sat out other recent Grammy telecasts.

The Grammys have always been a mixed bag for Beyonce, who is on a soon-to-be unparalleled run with the awards, but has only won one of the top all-genre awards once, when she picked up song of the year for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” in 2010.

Congrats Bey!
