The band, which consists of Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee, was touring through South America at the time of Taylor’s death. They had been expected to stop in Las Vegas to celebrate their nominations.
Before the show aired on CBS, the band learned they won Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance. The Foo Fighters have now won 15 Grammys, the most by any American band in history.
During her Grammys performance, Billie Eilish honored Taylor by wearing a shirt with his face on it. As she rounded out her performance, the Grammy winner tugged her shirt as a reminder of the rocker’s death.
