Ratings: 2024 GRAMMYs Draw the Award Show’s Biggest Audience In 4 Years

Published: Thursday 8th Feb 2024 by Rashad

With the combined forces of SZA, Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, Fantasia, Burna Boy, Tracy Chapman, Olivia Rodrigo, and Billie Eilish on its performance roster, the superstars – alongside the other chart-toppers in the house like Beyonce and JAY-Z, Taylor Swift, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, and others – proved more than enough to boost Sunday’s GRAMMYs into some of its best viewership figures in years.

See what we mean inside.

Viewership: 17.09 Million

Beyond boasting a slew of historic highs and unprecedented wins, the 66th annual edition of music’s biggest night drew a viewing audience slightly north of 17 million, its highest ratings since garnering 18.7 million in 2020.

The 2024 figure – which doesn’t include streaming from Paramount+ – represents a 36% increase from last year’s ceremony also hosted by Trevor Noah.

    SZA’s power✨

    • Nina February 8, 2024

      Lie… 🥱 cause of legends like Mariah, Celine, Tracy Chapman, Join Mitchell, Billy Joel… etc. You can’t beat quality over hype! Time to cancel hip-hop culture by bring back music, art & melodies!

      • Tisha February 8, 2024

        And also a nice tribute to everyone! I thought it was well done!

        Trevor Noah is a good host! 👏

  2. Taylorism February 8, 2024

    Without Beyonce everything was fine… ratings UP! 🫶

    • Wedd February 8, 2024

      Beyonce was there last year and the ratings were low

    • Meg February 8, 2024

      She shouldnt be attending at all and this show would be like good old days!

  3. Lil Bey February 8, 2024

    Cause ppl tired of hip-hop and black ghetto music! That’s why!

  4. Fact February 8, 2024

    Minus that satanic ritual by Travis Scott and Jay-Zzz’s boring speech about his dumb wife this year Grammy would have been perfect 10!!

  5. Mrs Jackson February 8, 2024

    Anything without so much hip-hop/rap surely will make people glued to the television. Not everyone can relate to gangs, strip clubs, violence, underground 3rd world ghetto culture…I agree that limiting to the underground culture will make the audience interested in music and the show in general again.

    I’m not saying hip-hop doesn’t have its own niche but the Grammy should cater to the general public.


    Without Taylor… +10!


  7. Karan of Texan February 8, 2024

    Nominations also play an important to ratings. Thanks to Taylor…Miley!!

    That Billie girl omg, I’m not sure y’all 🤮 she can’t sing!

  8. Opsssssssss! February 8, 2024

    It proves America is getting tired of Flopyonce, also
    Jay, Kanye, Drake, Minaj, etc!!! Next is Taylor S*****…..just wait

  9. Werr February 8, 2024

    Well actually alot people tune in to see Fantasia Tina Turner tribute it peak 18 million around her tribute to Tina

    • Boringyonce February 8, 2024

      Fantasia nailed it. Bey is too much…of a $tripper vibe!! 🤣

  10. Keith February 8, 2024

    Good for NARAS and the producers of the show.

  11. Walahah February 8, 2024

    I enjoyed it. The best in years.
    Book Trevor Noah for at least 2 more years. 👏👏

  12. Hip hop is for a 10yo February 8, 2024

    Megan The Scallops has only sold over 5 million career album units in the US. Don’t invite a mental illness to an event if Grammy’s wants the audience..ha 💅

  13. Angela Cheng February 8, 2024

    Worst performance:

    Jay’s speech…..embarrassment even to an a**!

  14. Flower February 8, 2024

    The power of Miley!!!!!!

  15. Gaga February 8, 2024

    Easy formula. Bey wasnt nominated indeed was a good start sign. America is getting tired of her attitude and music in general. Plus, her payola awards and recognitions all smoke and mirrors. HYPE!!

  16. !!! February 8, 2024

    stop giving awards to the same artist….everything will be fine!

  17. Insuline February 8, 2024

    Time to recognize real musicians

  18. Beyoncé is definitely a billionaire idiot. And you? MUAH 💋 NO MONEY February 8, 2024

    Thank god no Meg
