Grammy Winners and SXSW Beginners: With Trevor Noah presenting and while Bad Bunny, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion were performing, L.A. artists including Billie Eilish and Ice T’s Body Count walked away as winners. As ever, it was a night of celebration and some bemusement. Social media was jammed with stuffy people complaining about Megan Thee Stallion’s twerking, while Justin Bieber’s win in a country category confused many. Beyonce made history with the most wins by a female artist ever (28). See the full list of winers here.
