A Triumphant Return to the Grammy Stage

Minogue, the pop icon known for chart-toppers like The Loco-Motion, had not taken home a Grammy since her 2004 win for Come Into My World. The new hit Padam Padam has proven to be a global success, charting in the top 20 in various countries, including her home of Australia, the UK, and America. This joyous occasion marks the sixth time Minogue has been nominated, adding a second Grammy win to her illustrious career.

The event, hosted by Justin Tranter, began with a pre-televised award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, snagged by SZA and Phoebe Bridgers. The newly introduced category of Best Pop Dance Recording was shortly won by Minogue. Among other early winners included Peso Pluma, who took home a Grammy for Best Música Mexicana Album, and the sibling duo Billie Eilish and Finneas, who were awarded Best Song Written for Visual Media for their contribution to the Barbie soundtrack.

The night was especially notable for female artists, with SZA leading the pack with nine nominations. Other notable mentions include performances by Sheila E., Larkin Poe, and Jordin Sparks, each adding to the evening's thrilling energy.
