Beyoncé has been sitting pretty on the top of the music throne after breaking record after record at the Grammy Awards – and tonight’s ceremony may very well feature more of the same.
In the past couple of years alone, the 41-year-old has become the most-decorated female artist in the awards’ history and hit the all-time record for nominations for the annual ceremony.
Indeed, the hitmaker is tied with her own husband, rapper Jay-Z, with 88 nods in her career to date.
Now, fans might get to witness the singer become the most-decorated artist in Grammy history if she secures at least four of her nine nods at the ceremony, which has seen music stars flock to the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.

At present, Beyoncé has won 28 Grammys during her career. This achievement has made her a tie with super producer Quincy Jones as the second most-awarded artists.
The top spot is current held by late orchestral conductor Sir Georg Solti, who won 31 in total before he passed in 1997.
In order to grab the top spot, Queen Bey would need to pick up four of her nine nods, which are scattered across several different categories.
Her single, Be Alive, for the film King Richard is up for Best Song Written For Visual Media.

Meanwhile, her smash-hit album, Renaissance, is in the running for Best Dance/Electronic Album and the highly coveted Album of the Year gongs.
Her Renaissance track Break My Soul is a nominated for Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Dance/ Electronic Recording.
Elsewhere, album track Virgo’s Groove is up for Best R&B Performance, while Plastic Off the Sofa is up for Best Traditional R&B Performance.
If the rumors are to be believed, the Cuff It singer will be making a splash at the ceremony with a special comeback performance on the Grammys stage.
According to Variety magazine, the show producers are in talks with the singer to treat viewers to an onstage appearance.

Beyoncé released Renaissance, her seventh studio album, containing the hit track Break My Soul in July 2022.
In putting the album together, she enlisted the help of such artists as Drake, Pharrell Williams, The-Dream, Skrillex – and her husband Jay-Z.
The Ring The Alarm hitmaker previously remarked that she hoped the album would be a rejuvenating form of escape for people after the turbulence of 2020.
‘With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again,’ she dished last year.
‘I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible,’ she said in last year’s September Icon issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

‘I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies,’ she noted.
‘Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!’ Bey assured her public.
Renaissance is Beyoncé’s first solo studio album since her groundbreaking visual album Lemonade from 2016, in which she famously confronted the questions around her marriage to Jay-Z and his fidelity.
Since Lemonade, she has put out a collaborative album with Jay-Z, a live album and a pair of soundtrack-related companion pieces for Disney’s photorealistic remake of The Lion King, in which she voiced the love interest Nala.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been married since 2008, and have welcomed three children into the world – Blue Ivy, 11, and twins Sir and Rumi, five.
