Women dominated at the 63rd Grammy Awards and won in the big four categories.

An early win for Megan Thee Stallion was followed by a surprise victory for H.E.R. before Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish also triumphed.

Beyonce made history of her own while Harry Styles made sure it was not a complete washout for the men.
