The Grammy voters have long been crazy in love with Beyoncé.

At the Recording Academy's 2023 Grammy Awards Feb. 5, the pop star will is nominated for a whopping nine honors for her seventh studio album Renaissance, including Record of the Year, competing against the likes of Adele, Kendrick Lamar, Lizzo, Doja CatHarry Styles and ABBA.

Beyoncé now ties husband Jay-Z, who is also a 2023 nominee, as the artist who has been nominated for the largest number of Grammy nominations in history—with 88 in total.

And that's not all, as Beyoncé is already the female artist with the most wins after taking home 28 Grammys.

The singer won her first two Grammys in 2001 when group Destiny's Child picked up Song of the Year and Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for their hit single "Say My Name."

Beyoncé has in the past performed at the Grammys, including with Jay-Z, and also made it a full family affair, bringing along her and Jay-Z's eldest daughter Blue Ivy Carter, 11, and taking the stage while pregnant with twins Sir Carter and Rumi Carter, now 5.

When the Beyhive Defends Beyoncé

The 2023 Grammys will take place weeks after Beyoncé performed her first full concert in four years, in Dubai, and three months before Beyoncé is set to embark on her Renaissance World Tour—her first solo tour in six years. The performances will begin in Stockholm, Sweden on May 10 and conclude Sept. 27 in New Orleans.

2000: Grammy Destiny

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. 

2001: First 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. 

2004: A Night with a Prince

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. 

2004: Beyoncé Shines

Growing her Grammy Award collection, Beyoncé went home with five statues after being nominated in six categories as a solo artist.  

2007: Listen Up

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." 

2008: Two Proud Marys

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.

2010: Wins for Sasha Fierce

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. 

2014: Steaming Up the Grammys

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. 

2017: Double Duty

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.
