Grammy winners walk away with more than just a shiny trophy—they join a legion of talented artists, producers, songwriters, and sound editors who have forged a distinct path in music. While everyone may be talking about some of the most viral moments from the 64th annual Grammy Awards, these winners are getting their much deserved buzz. 

The 2022 Grammy nominations were full of exciting moments—pop princess Olivia Rodrigo being nominated for her first award, Lady Gaga sharing nominations with Tony Bennett, and Billie Eilish coming back to compete for the top prizes. While some artists were the favorites to win this year, and win they did, there were a few tight races that had us holding our breath throughout the night—including best new artist, album of the year, and record of the year.

To be honest, Sunday’s awards may well determine the future of music and, most importantly, who’s going to be at the top of our 2022 Spotify Wrapped. 

Below, check out the complete list of the 2022 Grammy Award winners.
