Lots of history was made at the Grammy Awards on March 14. Taylor Swift became the first woman in history to win Album of the Year three times, Megan Thee Stallion took home the first female win for Best Rap Song, and Beyoncé became the most-awarded woman in Grammy history – for starters.

For many years now, country and bluegrass sensation Alison Krauss has held the title of most Grammy Awarded singer, but on Sunday night (March 14), she was dethroned by Beyoncé.

Krauss has won 27 Grammys, her first being in 1991 for her song “I’ve Got That Old Feeling” and most recently in 2012 for Best Bluegrass Album for Paper Airplane. 

Beyoncé took home three trophies on Sunday night, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “Savage (Remix)” with Megan Thee Stallion, as well as Best Music video for “Brown Skin Girl,” pushing her number of total trophies to 28.

The most-awarded person in Grammy history is conductor Georg Solti with 31, followed by record producer Quincy Jones at 28, who Beyoncé tied. With her three wins, she becomes the most-awarded singer in Grammy history, as well as the most-awarded female.
