The 2019 Grammys just wrapped, and despite people caring about the awards ceremony less and less, a lot went down. Childish Gambino made history with his “This Is America” win (and didn’t even show up), while Cardi B became the first ever solo woman to win Best Rap Album.
After reportedly turning down the chance to perform, Drake showed up to collect his Best Rap Song award for “God’s Plan” and proceeded to call out the Grammys during his acceptance speech, which was promptly cut off. Ariana Grande, meanwhile, tweeted angrily after Cardi B beat the late Mac Miller to Best Rap Album, later explaining that she was upset the Recording Academy had invited Miller’s parents to the awards but then didn’t honor their son.
Of course, no awards show would be complete without memes, and lots of them. From Cardi B’s clamshell dress and her relationship with Offset to Drake’s speech and K-pop idols BTS’ hair, here are the best memes from the Grammys 2019.
