Last Sunday (26/01), the Grammy Awards aired for the 62nd time. Despite the various allegations made by Deborah Dugan, a former Grammy director, the award managed to implacate the world population who seemed to ignore the accusations of rape, racism, corruption and misogyny and preferred to enjoy the award as in all other years. The night was full of dubious victories and defeats, remarkable performances and others that left the public in boredom, however, regardless of all these things and the accusations, Grammy became the most talked about subject on Twitter.

As in all years, victories make fans happy and haters enraged, defeats leave fans sad and haters enraged, fights over the internet are countless and doubts were the highlight of the night. But despite all that, the awards were given regardless of public opinion and criticism. Now trust the list of all winners of 85 categories at the 2020 Grammy Awards and see which of our predictions were correct. (15 of 17)
