The Big Winners at The Grammy Awards 2022

Jon Batiste, Silk Sonic, Olivia Rodrigo and others won many Grammys at the Grammys 2022 in Las Vegas on 3rd April.

Kanye West for Best Melodic Rap Performance for ‘Hurricane’ and Best Rap Song for ‘Jail,’ Tyler, The Creator for Best Rap Album for ‘Call Me If You Get Lost,’ and Olivia Rodrigo for Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Drivers License’ were among the early winners.

Batiste took up the most trophies of the night, with five, including Album of The Year for ‘We Are.’ Silk Sonic, who won four accolades for their song “Leave The Door Open,” including Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year, came in second. Rodrigo received three awards, including Best New Artist, while Kanye West, Tony Bennett, and Lady Gaga each received two.

Following the passing of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins on 25th March, a homage was paid to him. The Foo Fighters were supposed to perform during the event, but they’ve now dropped out and cancelled their planned tour.
