The 61st Grammy Awards were a monumental night for women in music. Hosted by Alicia Keys, the first female host in 17 years, the show gave tribute to musical legends Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, and Aretha Franklin. Jennifer Lopez kept the momentum going with a show-stopping Motown tribute. And finally, Kacey Musgraves took home the Grammy for Album of the Year, while Cardi B became the first woman to ever win best rap album as a solo artist.
