14 Reactions To Harry Styles Winning Album Of The Year Over Beyoncé At The 2023 Grammys

The Beyhive is...not pleased.

The 2023 Grammys went down tonight — and when it came to Album of the Year, there was a bit of an upset.

Basically, it was expected that Beyoncé — who, to date, has never won Album of the Year — would take home the prize for Renaissance.

However, that...didn’t happen. Instead, Harry Styles took home the prize for his blockbuster album Harry’s House.

He looked surprised, too.

A little uncomfortable, even.

Of course, Twitter had some thoughts on what transpired. Here's what people have been saying — and, for the Harry fans out there, we're just sharing these, so don't get mad at us:


They really gave aoty to harry styles over Beyoncé ???¿

kinda feel like harry styles winning over beyonce was engineered by someone who hates harry styles with an unrivaled passion. it would be the perfect plan…to give him the moment of a lifetime but stain it with the justified outrage and hate of millions

Listen, @Beyonce made history tonight! She of course wins OUR album of the year but let’s also recognize that Harry Styles has been doing his thing too and very deserving! Let’s celebrate and show love! Thats literally what her album is about 🎉💃🏾🫶🏾 #GRAMMYs

Two things can be true at once: 1) Beyoncé has been historically snubbed by the Recording Academy and deserves her flowers 2) I can be a Harry Styles fan and be happy that he won an award when I’ve watched his career grow while also acknowledging his privilege
