A black woman.
Beyonce Giselle Knowles has received 62 Grammy nominations in her career. That’s more than any other female artist in the history of the Grammys. Out of those 62 nominations, she won 22 of them. This year she has 9 nominations. If Beyonce wins every single award tonight, she will break records.
A black woman will break records tonight! Beyonce could win three of the big four awards tonight — the ones she can win include record of the year, album of the year, and song of the year.
These awards will be all from her album Lemonade. This is a big deal because Lemonade celebrated the black experience. So for Beyonce to be honored for this album would be a really big win for Black History Month. As a black woman, Beyonce has faced much more scrutiny than her white counterparts. From people like Piers Morgan constantly attacking her to racist trolls coming after her, Beyonce has seen a lot of backlash as a black woman. She has worked twice as much as her white counterparts, so I would love to see Beyonce take all the wins tonight… not just for her, but for Black History Month.
