Grammys 2024: Dua Lipa opens show and SZA shines

 Dua Lipa opened the 2024 Grammy Awards with an athletic medley of her songs, including Dance the Night, which is up for song of the year. She was followed by Tracy Chapman, who made a rare appearance to join Luke Combs, who covered her song Fast Car last year. The winners so far include SZA, Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Swift, who used her speech to announce a new album. Swift could make history later if she scoops her fourth best album award.

R&B star SZA is the show's leading nominee with nine nods and had already won two awards in the Grammys pre-ceremony. She is currently tied on three wins with Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Frank Sinatra. Miley Cyrus won the first award of the night for best pop vocal performance for her song Flowers, which was her first Grammy.

The Grammys are the industry's most prestigious awards, with legends like Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, and U2, as well as chart names like Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Burna Boy, and Travis Scott. Meryl Streep even attended the show, supporting her son-in-law Mark Ronson, who was nominated for producing the Barbie soundtrack.

Only a handful of the 94 prizes are handed out in the live show, with the rest announced during a four-hour "premiere ceremony" in the afternoon. Boygenius, rapper Killer Mike, Kylie Minogue, Joni Mitchell, and South African singer Tyla all received awards at the awards.

Dua Lipa said that she still has to remind herself that her song is her butterfly, as it is playing everywhere she goes and people know it.
