'It’s sick': Internet slams 'weirdest' decision to let James Corden present Beyonce's history-making Grammys win
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Beyonce's history-making Grammys award was presented to her by British TV host James Corden, who said it was an “honour” to be able to do it. The decision is now being criticized on social media. “We are witnessing history tonight,” James Corden said before announcing the award. Beyonce, 41, won the best dance/electronic music album award for her latest album 'Renaissance', which takes her total to 32.
The 2023 Grammys, officially known as the 65th Grammy Awards, is airing live from Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. Hosted by Trevor Noah, the event is airing on CBS and Paramount+. It recognizes the best recordings, compositions, and artists from October 1, 2021, to September 30, 2022.

Beyonce's Grammys win
On winning the award, Beyonce became the most decorated artist in the history of Grammys as she surpassed the 26-year-old record that late Hungarian-British conductor Georg Solti once held. The song was written by various writers, including Beyonce, The-Dream, Nile Rodgers, and Raphael Saadiq.

'Weirdest decision of the night'
Fans slammed the decision to let Corden present the award to Beyonce, considering he has now become a controversial figure. He has sparked criticism in the past for incidents like mocking BTS at the UN assembly and lashing out at the waiters at the Balthazar restaurant in New York. The owner of New York’s Balthazar, Keith McNally, even called him out as the "most abusive customer".
