It’s official: not one “Big Four” Grammy trophy went to a betting favorite.
Earlier, Bonnie Raitt’s massive underdog “Just Like That” took home the Song of the Year trophy. Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” subsequently won Record of the Year despite fairly long odds.
The Best New Artist and Album of the Year reveals also included surprises.
Samara Joy earned the Grammy for Best New Artist. Although the artist wowed during her performance on the pre-show, she was still considered a massive betting underdog. Latto, Anitta, and MANESKIN were seen as the favorites to win.
Harry Styles’ “Harry’s House” won the Album of the Year prize in the night’s final award reveal. “Harry’s House” was by no means considered a massive long shot, but Beyonce’s “RENAISSANCE” and Adele’s “30” were the betting favorites.
