Beyonce Sets Grammys Record.

Beyoncè tied a Grammys record with her first win of the night at the Sunday evening awards show — and she wasn’t even there to see it happen.

According to Grammys host — and former host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” — Trevor Noah, the “Break My Soul” hitmaker was on her way to the venue still stuck in a Los Angeles traffic jam when she officially won the Grammy for Best R&B Song.

While celebrities and fans alike scanned the crowd for Beyoncè once her name had been announced, Terius Nash — a.k.a. The Dream — and Nile Rodgers came to the stage to accept the award on her behalf. Noah then offered an explanation.


“So for real, Beyoncè is on her way. The upside of hosting the Grammys in LA is that everyone can be here, the downside of hosting the Grammys in LA is the traffic,” Noah explained. “Beyoncè is on her way, and just for reference … Just for reference, Beyoncè has now equalled the record for most Grammys of any individual of all time. This is it, this is it.”

Noah later interrupted the show once Beyoncè arrived, announcing to everyone else that “the queen is officially in the building”She presented her award at her table. “I was shocked to find out that traffic could stop you,” Noah quipped, adding, “I thought you traveled through space and time, but I’m glad you could be with us.”


In addition to nabbing two awards in the pre-show ceremony — Best Dance/Electronic recording for “Break My Soul” and Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa” — Beyoncè took home her first award of the night for the song “Cuff It.”She won the Best Dance Album Category for her second win. “Renaissance,”Two things made her history: It marked her 32nd Grammy and broke the tie making her the most decorated artist of history. Also, it was the first time a black woman won the Best Dance Album category.

During her emotional acceptance speech, Beyoncè offered her thanks “to the queer community,”Thank you for your support of her music, and for “inventing this genre.”
