Despite the game’s mixed reception, praise for Fazal’s performance as Diana Prince has been overwhelmingly positive.
All the Muslim Artists Who Won at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards
We've collected every Muslim artist who won at the 2024 Grammys in one place, just for you!
Muslim artists made a huge splash at the 2024 Grammy Awards last night.
R&B singer-songwriter SZA entered the night with the most nominations of any artist, leading the pack of nominees with a whopping nine nods. She walked away with three wins in a four-way tie for the second-most decorated artist of the night. The other artists with three wins include the indie supergroup boygenius, rapper and activist Killer Mike and the 66th Annual Grammys’ best new artist, singer-songwriter Victoria Monét.
SZA’s winning categories include best pop duo/group performance for her song “Ghost in the Machine,” which features boygenius’s Phoebe Bridgers, as well as best R&B song for “Snooze” and best progressive R&B album for “SOS.”
While SZA was the most decorated Muslim artist at the ceremony, several other notable Muslim artists took home a Grammy last night. The often controversial comedian Dave Chappelle won best comedy album for his special “What’s in a Name?”
Composer Zakir Hussain won two of his three nominated categories, taking home best contemporary instrumental album for “As We Speak” (shared with Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer and Rakesh Chaurasia) and best global music performance for “Pashto” (shared again with Fleck, Meyer and Chaurasia).
Singer-songwriter K’naan earned a Special Merit Award for best song for social change. The award honors songwriters of message-driven music that speaks to the social issues of our time and has demonstrated and inspired positive global impact. K'naan won the award for his single "Refugee," along with co-writers Steve McEwan and Gerald Eaton aka Jarvis Church.
The ceremony also featured performances from SZA and Dua Lipa, with Lipa sharing a preview of "Training Season," a previously unheard song from her upcoming album that will drop as a single later this month.
Finally, Annie Lennox shared a powerful tribute of Sinéad O'Connor’s "Nothing Compares 2 U" during the ceremony’s In Memoriam section, honoring O’Connor after her unexpected passing last year. Lennox ended her performance by calling for cease-fire in Gaza, befitting the way O’Connor spent most of her life and career as an outspoken activist.
