See the 2024 Grammy winners & 2 powerful performances

The 66th annual Grammy Awards took place Sunday, Feb. 4, 2024. The evening broadcast included wins for big-name artists like Taylor Swift, SZA, Miley Cyrus, and Billie Eilish, as well as some truly moving performances.

Tracy Chapman joined Luke Combs to perform her song “Fast Car,” the first time she’s played it live in years (she hasn’t toured in over a decade). And wow they both sounded great, and seemed to truly honor and respect each other.

The Grammys website has now posted the “Fast Car” performance in full.

Annie Lennox led a moving tribute to Sinead O’Connor, Stevie Wonder honored Tony Bennett, and Joni Mitchell also performed – her first Grammy performance ever. She was joined by artists including Brandi Carlile, Lucius, and Allison Russell for rich, hauntingly powerful version of “Both Sides Now.”

Many of the awards were presented not during the network TV broadcast but during an afternoon event dubbed the “Premiere Ceremony.” Here, artists such as Russell, boygenius, Jason Isbell, Molly Tuttle, and Brandy Clark took the stage to accept awards in categories such as Best Americana Album, Best Bluegrass Album, and Best Alternative Music Performance.

Below are winners (marked in bold) and nominees in select categories from this year’s Grammy Awards. For the full list of this year’s categories, nominees, and winners, visit NPR.org
