It’s already a day of firsts at the Grammy Awards.
The Recording Academy began handing out awards during the premiere ceremony before tonight’s big event.
Nipsey Hussle won best rap performance, his first Grammy award, for "Racks in the Middle." The late rapper scored two other posthumous nods for best rap/sung performance and best rap song.
Former first lady Michelle Obama also snagged her first Grammy for best spoken word album for the audiobook of her memoir “Becoming,” bringing the Obama household’s Grammy count to three.
And we’d be remiss if we didn’t shout out the queen herself, Beyoncé, who took home the award for best music film for “Homecoming.”
