The winners are in for the Grammy Awards 2022, and congratulations are in order for newcomer Olivia Rodrigo. The up-and-coming 19-year-old singer-songwriter is hailed as the Best New Artist this year. She was also awarded the Best Pop Vocal award for her breakout album Sour and won Best Pop Solo Performance for drivers license over Billie Eilish's Happier Than Ever and Ariana Grande's Positions.
Many great things are happening for the teenage hit sensation. In addition to her Grammys win, Olivia has also recently launched an original film with Disney+ called OLIVIA RODRIGO: driving home 2 u (a SOUR film).
Who else won at the Grammys 2022?
Jon Batiste won Album of the Year for We Are; beating Taylor Swift's Evermore among others. Meanwhile R&B duo Silk Sonic's Leave the Door Open won Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
More artists who got the coveted gilded gramophone trophy include Doja Cat and SZA for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Baby Keem for Best Rap Performance for Family Ties featuring Kendrick Lamar.
In contrast to the controversial Oscars 2022 ceremony, the Grammy Awards largely remain drama-free and was described by host Trevor Noah as a "concert where we give out awards". The event also included a message from Ukraine's president Zelensky. "Our musicians wear body armour instead of tuxedos. They sing to the wounded in hospitals, even to those who can’t hear them. But the music will break through anyway," he said.
Overall, it's one for the books!
