“Historic” seems to be the theme of the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards.
In just the pre-show alone, the ceremony’s broken its record books wide open by handing out unprecedented awards to the likes of Tiffany Haddish, Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, Blue Ivy Carter (daughter of Beyonce), and more (as we’ve reported here). And if the recently reported wins are anything to judge by, they’re not stopping any time soon.
See how Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande have been granted access to GRAMMY history books inside:
One of many new categories introduced in 2012, the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance trophy has been collected by the likes of hitmakers Tony Bennett, Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams, and more in its short tenure.
Already a previous category winner alongside Bradley Cooper for their 2018 hit, ‘Shallow,’ Gaga returned in 2021 to nab another – this time for her chart-topping ‘Chromatica’ hit, ‘Rain On Me,’ with Ariana Grande.
The triumph makes the duo the first all-female act to win the fairly young award.
For Gaga, who is already one of the most decorated female acts in history, the new trophy marks the 12th GRAMMY she’s won to date. For Grande, it’s her second golden grammophone following a 2019 win in the Best Pop Vocal Album category for her ‘Sweetener’ project.
