NEW ANGELES : Women won every major Grammy at Sunday's history-making gala, a joyful night for music's biggest stars after a devastating year for the industry, - with -

With Beyonce, Megan Thee Stallion and Taylor Swift triumphing at the socially distanced event anchored by electrifying performances.

It was a monumental night for Beyonce, who broke the record for most career wins by a female artist with 28.

Swift became the first woman to win the coveted Album of the Year prize three times, this year for  ''folklore'' the first of her win quarantine releases.

And rap sensation Megan Thee Stallion charmed while accepting her three awards including Best New Artist - and disarmed viewers with a performance set the Los Angeles stage ablaze.

Megan and Queen Bay earned two awards together, for their remix of the rapper's smash hit ''Savage.'' The Houston teased with that track along with her single ''Boddy,'' before serving up a thirst trap of a duct that none other than Cardi B, both of them in metallic gear that left little to the imagination.

The night featured a host of impressive performances featuring Dua Lipa, DaBabuy, Swift, Bad Bunny and Record of the Year winner Billie Eilish, among others - a line up that kicked off with chest baring Harry Styles, who won his first ever award.

As an artist, I believe it's my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times. And it's been such a difficult time,'' Beyonce said., with her Jay-Z looking on, as she received her history-making reward.

''So I wanted to uplift, encourage, celebrate all of the beautiful BLACK queens and kings that continue to inspire me and the inspire the whole world.''

But it was Billie Eilish who took Record of the Year - a category in which Beyonce had two nominations, one with Megan Three Stallion - a moment that brought to mind Beyonce's controversial losses to Adele in 2017.

In accepting her second Record of the Year prize, the 19-year-old Eilish nodded to Megan, who she said had an ''untoppable'' years and deserved to win. [AFP]
