Megan Thee Stallion & Other 2021 GRAMMY Awards Show Winners React On Social Media: "AHHHHHHHJHGJDKNBOOM"

Everyone from ICE-T to Megan Thee Stallion had something to say in the Twitterverse about their big wins at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards

GRAMMYs/Mar 16, 2021 - 02:45 am

Given that the 2021 GRAMMY Awards show was partly virtual, the winners' reactions looked a little different than usual. The Strokes were in a dimly lit basement. Tiffany Haddish was on the set of "Kids Say The Darndest Things." James Taylor slowly ascended on a ski lift. 

And many of them took to social media, with posts ranging from gracious to formal to keyboard-smashing glossolalia. Here are a handful of great Twitter responses from winners at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards.

The Strokes Spray Beers In Celebration

With pool cues in hand, three members of The Strokes waited several seconds in anticipation as the video lagged. When they learned in the Premiere Ceremony they had won Best Rock Album for 2020's The New Abnormal, the beer foam flew in shared jubilation, as captured in this Twitter post.

Ice-T Genuflects To A Fallen Hero

The "SVU" star's jaw dropped when he watched the results roll in on his MacBook screen: his hardcore band Body Count had won Best Metal Performance for "Bum-Rush." In the caption to his Twitter clip, he shouted out Riley Gale of the Texas metal band Power Trip, who died in 2020 at only 34.

Snarky Puppy Take A Collective Bow

The big, funky jazz band Snarky Puppy took home Best Contemporary Instrumental Album for Live at the Royal Albert Hall. They responded by tweeting some love for their fans, crew and the hallowed venue.

Kaytranada Is A Man Of Few Words

The electronic mastermind sums up his gratitude for winning Best Dance/Electronic Album in eight words.

James Taylor Hits The Slopes 

Looking dapper in a down jacket, the "Fire and Rain" star smiles broadly at his phone camera while on a ski lift. "What an embarrassment of riches to be here in the mountains," Taylor remarks before acknowledging his win for Best Traditional Pop Vocal album for American Standard.

Lady Gaga Toasts The Ceremony From Italy

 "So honored just to be nominated! Love you little monsters!" Gaga tweeted prior to winning Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Rain on Me."

We All Float On

Taylor Swift, Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner are the dapper winners of Album Of The Year for folklore.

Drumroll, Please…

It's only fitting that our Best New Artist, Megan Thee Stallion, should have the last words (?).

Allen Hughes' "The Defiant Ones" Wins Best Music Film | 2018 GRAMMY

Director Allen Hughes' four-part documentary takes home Best Music Film honors for its portrayal of the unlikely partnership that changed the music business

GRAMMYs/Jan 29, 2018 - 02:09 am

The team behind The Defiant Ones celebrated a big win for Best Music Film at the 60th GRAMMY Awards. The crew awarded include director Allen Hughes and producers Sarah Anthony, Fritzi Horstman, Broderick Johnson, Gene Kirkwood, Andrew Kosove, Laura Lancaster, Michael Lombardo, Jerry Longarzo, Doug Pray & Steven Williams.

In a year rife with quality music documentaries and series, the bar has been set high for this dynamic category. The Defiant Ones is a four-part HBO documentary telling the story of an unlikely duo taking the music business by storm seems better suited for fantastical pages of a comic book, but for engineer-turned-mogul Jimmy Iovine and super-producer Dr. Dre, it's all truth.The Defiant Ones recounts their histories, their tribulations and their wild success. These include first-hand accounts from those who were there in Iovine's early days, such as Bruce Springsteen and U2's Bono, as well as those on board when Dre and Iovine joined forces, such as Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

The competition was stiff as the category was filled with compelling films such as One More Time With Feeling, Two Trains Runnin', Soundbreaking, and Long Strange Trip.

DJ Khaled, Nipsey Hussle And John Legend Win Best Rap/Sung Performance For "Higher" | 2020 GRAMMYs

DJ Khaled, Nipsey Hussle and John Legend take home Best Rap/Sung Performance at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards

GRAMMYs/Jan 27, 2020 - 09:05 am

DJ Khaled, featuring Nipsey Hussle and John Legend, has won Best Rap/Sung Performance for "Higher" at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. The single was featured on DJ Khaled's 2019 album Father of Asahd and featured Hussle's vocals and Legend on the piano. DJ Khaled predicted the track would win a GRAMMY.

"I even told him, 'We're going to win a GRAMMY.' Because that's how I feel about my album," DJ Khaled told Billboard. "I really feel like not only is this my biggest, this is very special."

After the release of the song and music video -- which was filmed before Hussle's death in March -- DJ Khaled announced all proceeds from "Higher" will go to Hussle's children.

DJ Khaled and co. beat out fellow category nominees Lil Baby & Gunna ("Drip Too Hard"), Lil Nas X ("Panini"), Mustard featuring Roddy Ricch ("Ballin") and Young Thug featuring J. Cole & Travis Scott ("The London"). Hussle earned a second posthumous award at the 62nd GRAMMYs for Best Rap Performance for "Racks In The Middle." 

Along with Legend and DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, Kirk Franklin, Roddy Ricch and YG paid tribute to Hussle during the telecast, which concluded with "Higher."
