The 66th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony took place this weekend, and it turned out to be yet another triumphant evening for guitar-based acts – both in terms of those who ended up taking home the prizes and those who entertained attendees with show-stopping performances.

As expected, the evening was dominated by chart-topping pop superstars – including Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish and SZA – but the headlines this week will also be shared by the likes of boygenius, Paramore, Metallica, Joni Mitchell and Larkin Poe, who all won big during the ceremony.
