With 16 wins and 44 nominations, Beyoncé is the third most honored woman in GRAMMYs history. After winning three with Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé tied the record for most wins (five) in a single night by a female artist in 2004. In 2010, she surpassed the record when she won six awards, including Song of the Year and Best R&B Female Vocal Performance for “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” and Best Pop Female Vocal Performance for “Halo.”
At just 30-years old, she ranks third for most honored female performers behind Alison Krauss (26) and Aretha Franklin (18), and ties second for most-nominated female artist in Grammy history with 44, behind Dolly Parton, with 45 nominations.
In addition to a trio of solo performances, Knowles has also graced the GRAMMYs stage with Prince and Tina Turner. In 2004, she performed a ‘Purple Rain‘ Medley with Prince, which incorporated her hit single “Crazy In Love.” To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the GRAMMYs, she joined forces with the legendary Tina Turner, performing Turner’s classic “Proud Mary.”
