Grammys 2023: Highlights, Speeches & Performances!
Music’s biggest names gathered at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles for the 65th annual Grammy Awards Sunday night. Here are the big moments that went down!
- Host Trevor Noah opened up the show by calling out the star-studded room! After spotting Adele, he approaches her table, talks about how she’s never met Dwayne Johnson, and then brings The Rock over for a sweet Grammy surprise!
- Stevie Wonder graced the Grammy stage for a Motown tribute that got everyone up on their feet! Smokey Robinson and Chris Stapleton joined in on the tribute.
- Beyoncé won the award for Best R&B Song for “Cuff It” but was not there to accept the award. Host Trevor Noah said she was en route to the Grammys but, unfortunately, stuck in that awful LA traffic.
- Beyoncé eventually made it and won Best Dance/Electronic album for Renaissance. With that win, Beyoncé became the Grammy’s most-awarded winner with 32. (See Additional Capsule for details).
- Madonna made a surprise appearance and talked about being provocative, controversial, and problematic and how it’s a good thing to be before introducing Sam Smith and Kim Petras for their performance of “Unholy.”
- During the In Memoriam segment, special musical tributes were given to Loretta Lynn, who died in October; Christine McVie, who died in November; and Takeoff from Migos rapper who was shot and killed in November.
- Legendary rapper and record producer Dr. Dre was honored with the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award. LL Cool J presented the award to Dre. After Dre accepted the honor, they slammed right into the Grammys’ tribute to 50 years of hip-hop which stole the show! (See Additional Capsule for details).
- A shocked Bonnie Raitt won Song of the Year for “Just Like That.” She accepted the award saying, ” I’m so surprised, I don’t know what to say. I don’t write a lot of songs but I’m so proud that you appreciate this one. I’m totally humbled.”
- Lizzo won Record of the Year for “About Damn Time.”
- Harry Styles took home Album of the Year for Harry’s House.
- Robert Glasper won Best R&B Album at Sunday’s Grammy Awards.
- Apparently, Chris Brown, who was also up for the award, decided to show ignorance and bitterness at the same time.
- Brown posted a series of Instagram Stories. One showed a photo of Glasper and said, “Y’all playing. Who da f–k is this?”
- Another story post said, “Who the f–k is Robert Glasper? I’ma keep kicking y’all a– respectfully.” He continued, “I gotta get my skills up…Ima start playing the harmonica.”
- Social media came for Chris’s disrespect for Glasper. One person wrote, “Instead of Chris Brown being nasty in his IG stories towards Robert Glasper he needs to be trying to set up a studio session with him, but I digress!”
- Another person wrote, “Chris Brown having no idea who Robert Glasper and proceeding to come for him perfectly explains why his music hasn’t grown or matured in 15 years.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger was involved in a traffic accident yesterday. He crashed into a woman riding a bike. But it wasn’t his fault, because she swerved into his lane to make a left turn. Luckily he wasn’t going fast at all. The bicyclist was transported to the hospital, and she’s going to be okay. Her bike’s going to be okay too . . . Arnold took it to a local bike shop to get fixed. Law enforcement sources said Arnold is in the clear, and no crime was committed. (TMZ)
Ridley Scott’s Gladiator sequel has landed a 2024 release date. The action movie will hit theaters Nov. 22, 2024 via Paramount. The project is a follow-up to Scott’s best picture-winning 2000 feature, which followed Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe), a former general who is forced into being a common gladiator under the rule of Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the patricidal self-appointed Emperor of Rome. According to previous reports, the sequel’s story will center on Lucius, the son of Lucilla, played by Connie Nielsen, and the nephew of Phoenix’s Commodus. The project is currently untitled. Paul Mescal, who recently earned an Oscar nomination for his role in the A24 feature Aftersun, is in negotiations to star. At the time of the release, Gladiator grossed $460 million at the box office and earned eleven Oscar nominations, winning five statutes, including best picture and best actor for Crowe. Also due out in November 2024 is Marvel film Fantastic Four, which is slated for Nov. 8. Gladiator Sequel Release Date Set for 2024 – The Hollywood Reporter
Red Hot Chili Peppers fans are disappointed with the band after their show last week in Australia. It seems like fans are upset that the band played a roughly two-hour show but didn’t perform their hits like “Under The Bridge” or “Suck My Kiss”. Fans commented that the Peppers’ concert was a “terrible show… Hundreds of people walked out early. Extremely boring set list had the crowd half asleep.” There were fans who defended the fan, though. One concertgoer wrote “Mad props to the persons slamming the boomer style sense of entitlement… Band releases new albums since you were a teenager and you’re disappointed that they play them and not that song you got drunk to that time?”
