65th Annual Grammy Awards: Lizzo Wins ‘Record of the Year’ for ‘About Damn Time’
Lizzo earned her fourth win at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards after taking home “Record of the Year” for her smash record “About Damn Time.”
The songwriter was nominated for several trophies this evening, including “Best Pop Solo Performance,” “About Damn Time,” “Album of the Year,” and “Best Pop Vocal Album” for her LP Special. In her acceptance speech, she shouted out several artists who inspired her, including the late Prince. Earlier in the show, the chart-topping entertainer wowed viewers with an electrifying performance of “About Damn Time” and “Special.”
The milestone makes Lizzo the first Black woman to win “Record of the Year” since the late Whitney Houston in 1994 for her performance of “I Will Always Love You.”
This year’s ceremony was hosted by Primetime Emmy Award-winning actor and three-time host Trevor Noah, live from Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
