The ceremony celebrated 50 years of hip-hop. Spanning decades and regional subgenres, emcees like LL Cool J, Run DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Big Boi, GloRilla, Lil Baby and more rapped in the medley.

Viola Davis earned the rare and coveted EGOT status — becoming the third Black woman in history to achieve the honor. She earned her first Grammy for her performance of the audiobook for her memoir, “Finding Me.”

Kim Petras made Grammys history as the first transgender woman to win a Grammy in the best pop duo/group performance category. She received a standing ovation for the win, initiated by artist Sam Smith, who urged the crowd to cheer louder. Petras thanked Madonna and the late transgender music producer Sophie, who died in 2021 and was a close friend of the singer.

Seven-time GRAMMY winner Dr. Dre was the recipient of the inaugural Dr. Dre Global Impact Award for his multitude of achievements through his innovative, multi-decade career.

Dr. Dre was presented the award after a plethora of televised bona fides, and offered his thanks to the Recording Academy and Black Music Collective for the prestigious honor in light of the Recording Academy’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop.
