2000 marked Beyoncé's first-ever time at the Grammy Awards as part of Destiny's Child, which then included Kelly Rowland, Farrah Franklin and Michelle Williams. The group was recognized with two first-time nominations, but they went home without any Grammy gold.
This time as trio, Destiny's Child returned to the Grammy Awards the following year, serving now-iconic matching looks. The group was up for five awards and went home with two statues.
For her solo debut at the Grammys, Beyoncé joined Prince on stage for an electric duet as they performed a medley of his hits together.
Growing her Grammy Award collection, Beyoncé went home with five statues after being nominated in six categories as a solo artist.
In addition to being up for an award in four categories—and winning Best Contemporary R&B Album—the Dreamgirls star also took the audience's breath away with a performance of her hit song from the film, "Listen."
Once again a nominee—this time in three categories—Beyoncé made Grammy history as one half of an unforgettable performance of "Proud Mary" with Tina Turner.
One of Beyoncé's biggest nights at the Grammys came in 2010 when she went home with six statues—her most to date for one show.
On the heels of her surprise fifth album, Beyoncé, the star and her husband Jay-Z kicked off the 2014 Grammys with an unforgettably sexy performance of their collaboration, "Drunk in Love." The following year, the couple won two Grammy Awards for the song.
If you were to deem any year in Grammys history as Beyoncé's year, 2017 was it. Following the release of her iconic album, Lemonade, in 2016, the singer garnered a whopping nine nominations. The star, who was also pregnant at the time with twins Rumi and Sir, ultimately won in two categories—Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video. She also pulled double duty as a performer that night, delivering a stunning medley of songs from her hit record. To top things off, she was on the receiving end of praise from Adele, who basically used her acceptance speeches for Record of the Year and Album of the Year to fangirl over Queen Bey.
If you ever wanted to see Grammy royalty, look no further than this 2018 appearance from Beyoncé, Jay-Z and their daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
Beyoncé was not only a winner at the 2021 Grammys, but also a history maker. Thanks to her four wins during the show, she's now the most awarded woman artist in Grammy history.

In November 2022, Beyoncé was nominated for nine Grammys for the 2023 awards, which means she ties with her husband as the artist with the most Grammy nominations in history with 88 nods. She previously was the most nominated woman in Grammy history.
