Alison Krauss may reign as the Queen of the Grammys with a whopping 27 wins over her 30-year career (the most of any female act), but – thanks to 4 nominations at the 62nd annual Grammys Awards (January 26) – another music Queen entered the night as a threat to that throne: Beyoncé .
Grabbing nods in BEST POP SOLO PERFORMANCE (“Spirit”), BEST POP VOCAL ALBUM (“The Lion King: The Gift”), BEST SONG WRITTEN FOR VISUAL MEDIA (“Spirit”), and BEST MUSIC FILM (“Homecoming”) categories, the 38-year-old – already the event’s most nominated female performer ever – stood to tie Krauss’ winning record if she took home each of the trophies she was up for at the 2020 ceremony.
However, much to the dismay of her faithful fan base (the #Beyhive), Bey fell short on the challenge as her last category has been called. All’s not lost, though.
Find out which award the ‘Formation’ singer’s adding to her mantle:
Although in Los Angeles Grammy weekend, the diva was not on hand to accept the BEST MUSIC FILM (“Homecoming”) award when it was presented during the ceremony’s pre-show telecast.
Marking the 24th Golden gramophone win of her career, the victory extends her lead among Pop and R&B female singers but still leaves her 3 shy of tying the all-time record among women.
However, as mentioned above, she still remains the event’s most nominated female act (with a whopping 70 career nods to her name as of time reported).
