Beyonce had everyone on the internet wondering if she knew about her Grammy win ahead of everyone else
The Grammys had everyone wondering if people know about their award wins ahead of time. From Beyonce’s questionable Grammys post to Harry Styles winning album of the year, the two incidents had people guessing.
Beyonce sparked a Grammy conspiracy theory online when she shared a celebratory Instagram post just minutes after breaking the record for the most Grammy wins. The star was nominated for an astounding nine nominations and in the end now has 32 wins under her belt.
In the viral post, Beyonce can be seen with three Grammys sporting a pink head to toe outfit on a red carpet. Earlier in the show, Beyonce was nowhere to be seen, sources blamed traffic, and many thought she was potentially having her own photoshoot in this outfit, while others didn’t agree.
The post read “We won 3 y’all. To my Hive, thank y’all so much for all of your love and loyalty! Big thank you for the BREAK MY SOUL and CUFF IT wins!!! To The Dream, Tricky, HOV, and Big Freedia. I love y’all!”

On Twitter, many users online thought that the picture was taken and saved as a draft for later. Some even argued that the singer used her own Grammys to stage the potential wins of the night, but really everyone thought she knew about the win ahead of time.
As people began to dissect the moment, many wondered why the singer chose to post this in the middle of the award show as well. The Renaissance singer was still nominated for album of the year, and people also wondered if she knew she wasn’t going to receive the win in the category.
Aside from this theory Lizzo and Adele snapped a photo during Beyonce’s iconic win saying “Beyonce casually makes herstory.” There has been no confirmation that artists know about their wins ahead of time, but this other theory from the night doesn’t help the case.

The other viral moment that people are questioning happens to be Harry Styles taking home record of the year for the album “Harry’s House”. The category, dominated by the likes of Lizzo, Beyonce and so many more had people wondering who was truly going to win.
However, just before the category win was announced, many people online noticed an interaction with Taylor Swift. The moment had many wondering if Taylor Swift knew Harry Styles was going to win as she was the only celebrity notably standing up during his win for the award.
Many compared this to Taylor Swift’s 2009 VMA where she herself snubbed Beyonce of a win. Some thought this was Taylor’s way of showing support when Harry Styles was being heckled by Beyonce fans just like she was.
Many fans trolled the moment as In the 65-year history of the Grammy Awards, only 11 Black artists have won album of the year. Stevie Wonder became the first Black artist to win in 1974 for “Innervisions.
Others thought that Taylor Swift was inviting Harry Styles to perform with her on the Eras tour but that theory wasn’t as strong. The two did date a while back sparking of course a lot of discussion.
In the end we will never know if the artists know about the wins ahead of time for the Grammys but we will try our best to find out soon.
