LOS ANGELES (AP) — Beyoncé has tied the late Georg Solti for the most wins in Grammys history after she took home three awards Sunday during the show’s ceremony.

The superstar singer has now won 31 awards, bringing her one last step closer to become the most decorated artist in the show’s history. She won for best dance-electronic music recording category for “Break My Soul,” traditional R&B performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa” and R&B song for “Cuff It,” which was written by several writers including Beyoncé, The-Dream, Nile Rodgers, Raphael Saadiq.

Host Trevor Noah said Beyoncé was on her way to the ceremony but blamed Los Angeles traffic for not being in person to accept it.

Solti, a Hungarian-British conductor, also has 31 Grammys. He’s held on to the record since 1997.
