You never know what to expect from the Grammys, and the Grammys fashion of 2022 is a prime example of that. Olivia Rodrigo, BTS and Lady Gaga were a few of the stars that walked the red carpet at the 64th annual Grammy Awards on April 3, 2022, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 64th annual Grammy awards, hosted by Trevor Noah, will be the second Grammys since the current health crisis. The first post-pandemic Grammys, which was also hosted by Noah, was held outside at the Los Angeles Convention Center in March 2021. The 2022 Grammys also marks the first time the award show has been hosted in Las Vegas. The Grammys have been historically held in New York City or Los Angeles, though there have been two ceremonies in Chicago, Illinois.
The Grammys, which were originally known as the Gramophone Awards, started in 1959 as a way to honor artists and executives in the music industry in the same way that movies and television have the Oscars and the Emmys. The first award show was held on May 4, 1959, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, as well as the Park Sheraton Hotel in New York City. However, it wasn’t until later that year, at the second Grammy awards, that the show was televised for the first time. Its first live telecast was with the 13th Grammys in 1971.
Since the Grammys started more than 60 years ago, thousands of artists have received the coveted award: a gold-plated, gilded gramophone trophy made of zinc alloy. Though there are more than 80 categories across more than 25 fields and music genres, the Grammys are best known for their “General Field” categories (also known as the Big Four categories): Album of the Year; Record of the Year; Song of the Year; and Best New Artist. “Artists will often see a boost in album sales and streaming numbers after taking home a Grammy in what’s called a ‘Grammy bump,’ but the size of the bump often correlates with how many awards are collected and when in the ceremony the wins occur,” Billboard reported in 2022 of the significant of the Grammys. “Generally, primetime award wins and showstopping performances during the main telecast will yield bigger gains.”
But back to the red carpet. As we said, the Grammys fashion in 2022 didn’t come to play. Read on ahead for what stars like BTS, Lady Gaga and Olivia Rodrigo wore to the 64th annual Grammy Awards.

The Grammys 2022 host is comedian and Daily Show host, Trevor Noah, who also hosted the Grammys in 2021. In an interview with Las Vegas Magazine before the 2022 Grammys, Noah revealed how he thinks the 2022 award show will be different from past ceremonies. “I can’t wait to share the electricity of the night with 15,000 people live. It’s going to be energizing and so insane. We’ve spent two years as a society kept away from each other, and as we move back to normal these types of moments are a great way to celebrate,” he said. He also discussed how Las Vegas, where the Grammys will film, will add to the Grammys telecast. “Vegas seems like the perfect fit for the Grammys. Everyone goes to Vegas to party and enjoy the best performers in the world, and now on one night everyone shares the same stage. It’s going to feel special,” he said.
