Beyoncé has made history by winning more Grammy Awards than anyone in history.
When the nominations were announced last year, the singing sensation set a record for the highest number of nominations for a female artist ever with a whopping 88 nominations.
The only other person to have achieved that feat is her husband Jay-Z.
Recording Academy president Harvey Mason Jr. told The Hollywood Reporter: "Seeing Beyoncé with that amount of nominations — it just blows me away. It’s a testament to who she is, the talent she has (and) the iconic music she’s put out over the years.
“To think about that power couple, holy mackerel.
“I added it up: It’s 176 nominations between the two of them.

"Can you imagine them sitting at the show together? If one of them wins, the other one’s going to be like, ‘I got to win. I got to get another one.’ It’s going to be fun to watch.”
But tonight, she was walking into the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles prepared to etch her name into the history books once again.
All she needed to do was win four Grammys out of the nine nominations and she would overtake Georg Solti, a Hungarian-British conductor and record-holder at that point.
Before the main ceremony kicked off, she managed to scoop two awards.
The star took home Best Traditional R&B Performance ('Plastic Off The Sofa') and Best Dance/Electronic Recording ('Break My Soul').
She then won Best R&B Song for 'Cuff It' during the main part of the night, as well as Best Electronic/Dance Album.
The iconic singer now has 32 Grammy Awards to her name, making her the most-awarded artist in history.
Speaking on Instagram, she thanked everyone for helping her get this far.
"We won 3 y’all!" she wrote.
"To my Hive, thank y’all so much for all of your love and loyalty! Big thank you for the BREAK MY SOUL and CUFF IT wins!!! To The Dream, Tricky, HOV, and Big Freedia. I love y’all!
"Syd, I’ve always been such a fan of yours. Thank you.
"Nova Wav, Morten Ristorp, Raphael Saadiq, and Nile Rodgers, thank you for pouring into CUFF IT.
"Big thanks to Sabrina Claudio, Nick Green and Patrick Paige II. PLASTIC OFF THE SOFA is my favorite song on RENAISSANCE most days. It’s hard to pick though. Haaa.
"It feels great to be honored for the vocal performance. Thank you to all the talented vocalists who killed those beautiful TikTok renditions!
"I feel very grateful and filled with joy!"
