Our Favorite Queer Moments of the 2021 Grammy Awards
Queer women dominated this year's Grammy nominations, but how many won? Which of our favorite LGBTQ+ artists performed? Was that scissoring on CBS??? We answer those questions and more in this list of all our favorite queer moments from last night's Grammys ceremony.
Lady Gaga Makes History
Lady Gaga made history when she picked up her 12th career Grammy last night. She and Ariana Grande's "Rain on Me" became the first all-female song to win Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
Brandi Carlile Adds To Her Award Shelf
Carlile won Best Country Song with the rest of her bandmembers in The Highwomen for "Crowded Table." The Highwomen also include Natalie Hemby, Mren Morris, and Amanda Shires. This is her fourth Grammy award.
Megan and Cardi Scissor to 'WAP'
Meg and Cardi gave the sapphics what we wanted last night as they rolled around basically scissoring on a giant bed while performing "WAP." It was part of a Hot Girl Grammys for Megan Thee Stallion, who won Best New Artist, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance for "Savage" with Beyonce. This performance was WILD. It was like a lesbian fever dream. Thank you Megan, we love you.

Dressed in all black, Howard, who was nominated for five awards last night let her powerful voice free as she sang in tribute to artists members of the Recording Academy who had died this past year. She gave powerful performance of "You'll Never Walk Alone" right after Carlile stood on the stage and sang a tribute to singer-songwriter John Prine, who passed last year.
Chika Looks Great in Pastels
Rapper Chika, who was nominated for Best New Artist, showed up to the Grammys looking killer in pastel Nike. While she didn't take home any awards, she did get a shoutout from fellow Best New Artist nominee Phoebe Bridgers, and had one of our favorite looks of the night.
