Céline Dion’s surprise appearance
Céline Dion made a surprise appearance to present Taylor Swift with her award for Album of the Year. The rare public appearance is in the midst of her battling Stiff-person syndrome, which she revealed she had in 2022.
“When I say that I’m happy to be here, I really mean it from my heart,” Dion said on stage.
“Those who have been blessed enough to be here, the Grammy Awards, must never take for granted the tremendous love and joy that music brings to our lives, and to people all around the world,” she continued.
Jay-Z calls out the Academy
Jay-Z called out the Grammys when he received the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award. His daughter Blue Ivy Carter was also by his side on stage.
“I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than everyone, but never won Album of the Year,” Jay-Z said, while referring to his wife Beyoncé.
Beyoncé has won 32 Grammys Awards, marking the most wins by any artist of all time.
“So, even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work,” he continued.
“Some of you will go home tonight and feel like you’ve been robbed, some of you may get robbed. Some of you don’t belong in the category,” he said, while adding that he jokes by telling the truth when he’s nervous..

Pop star Miley Cyrus brought her boyfriend, Liily drummer Maxx Morando, as her plus one to the Grammy and even shared some PDA.
The “Flowers” singer scored her first two Grammys for best pop solo performance and record of the year.
“This award is amazing, but I really hope that it doesn’t change anything, because my life was beautiful yesterday,” she said.
“Not everyone in the world will get a Grammy but everyone in this world is spectacular,” she continued.
