To say that it was Beyoncé's epic night at the Grammys would indeed be the understatement of the year because that's exactly how it went! The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards should have been renamed as The Beyoncé because the 39-year-old singer made Grammy history as the most awarded female artist of all time and by any artist, male or female, with an unprecedented 28 wins. At the Grammys 2021, Beyoncé took home the Grammy for Best R&B Performance for Black Parade, Best Music Video for Brown Skin Girl and Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for Savage (Remix), which was in collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, who also took home the Grammy for Best New Artist.

Looking nothing short of exquisite in a Schiaparelli Haute Couture custom black gathered leather mini dress with matching gloves and sheer tights along with huge gold drop earrings and black Jimmy Choo platforms, Beyoncé made sure to congratulate her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, 9, on becoming the second youngest person to take home a Grammy for Best Music Video along with her mommy. "Thank you guys so much. Oh my God. I am so honoured. I am so excited. Thank you, guys. Oh, God. 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," Beyoncé began her powerful acceptance speech.

"So, I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world. This is so overwhelming. I've been working my whole life, since nine years old and I can’t believe this happened. This is such a magical night. Thank you so much," she continued.

"I know my daughter is watching; two daughters and my son, y’all are all watching. Blue, Congratulations. She won a Grammy tonight. I'm so proud of you and I'm so honoured to be your mommy, all of your mommys. Y’all are my babies. And I'm so proud of y’all. I love you so much, my rock. Enjoy your night. Thank you," Beyoncé concluded giving a shoutout to her kids Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir Carter, 3, along with her husband Jay-Z.

On the other hand, while accepting the Grammy for Best Rap Song for Savage (Remix), Megan and Beyoncé couldn't stop showering each other with praises. "First of all... (points at Beyoncé as the latter praises, "So proud of you.") Okay because I told I'm going to bring my paper up here this time because I'm not going to forget to thank nobody and now Beyonce came up here. Really? First of all, I have to keep thanking God because, without God, none of us will be here today. I also want to say congratulations to everybody who was nominated because all of these songs were amazing. Music really helped a lot of us get through the pandemic. So, like I said, shoutout to everybody who's in here today because a lot of these songs really pushed us all the way through," Stallion began her acceptance speech.

"I definitely want to say thank you to Beyoncé. If you know me, you have to know that ever since I was little, I was like you know what, one day I'm going to grow up and I am going to be like the rap Beyoncé, that was definitely my goal. And I remember I went to the rodeo for the first time and I saw Destiny's Child perform and I was like, 'You know what? Yes, I'm about to go hard. I love her work ethic, I love the way she is, I love the way she carry herself.' And my mama would always be like 'Megan, what would Beyoncé do?' And I'm always like, 'You know what, what would Beyoncé do, but let me make it a little ratchet.' (laughs) So, thank you, Beyoncé for your encouraging words all the time. Thank you, Jay, for putting me on Rock Nation. Like, my life has changed since I became a part. Thank you Dez, I know you watching. And yeah, just thank you, Houston, we did it," the 26-year-old singer praised her dream collaborator before signing off from her 'girl power' interlaced winning speech. Megan looked stunning in a Dolce & Gabbana bold orange gown with a huge bow in the back and a thigh-high slit, pairing the gorgeous dress with Chopard diamond jewellery and diamond-studded heels. Both ladies sported face masks matching their gorgeous gowns.

"So proud of you. I just want to quickly give my love to Megan. I have so much respect for you and I'm honoured that you asked me to be a part of the song. And I just want to say, Houston, we love you! Thank you, Grammys," Beyoncé concluded. Interestingly, Megan and Beyonce became the first female artists to ever win the category for Best Rap Performance at the Grammys.
