With so much more of the show still unfolding, we’ll be updating this post with the best performances of the night!
Watch the highlights from our favorite performances (so far).
Jay Z & Beyonce: “Drunk In Love”
A purple-lipped (and sort of twitchy) Lorde performed her chart-topping hit “Royals.”
Katy Perry, who is also looking pretty witchy, and Juicy J perform “Dark Horse,” Prism‘s trap-pop triumph.
Taylor Swift headbanged her way through “All Too Well,” off her Album of the Year and Best Country Album (hence the big blowout?) nominated Red.
Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons performed a live mash-up of “M.A.A.D. City” and “Radioactive,” a la Jay-Z and Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer.” Taylor Swift liked it. And now, you can buy the official “Radioactive (Remix)” on iTunes.
Stevie Wonder joined Daft Punk and Pharrell for Grammy Award-winning “Get Lucky.”
Kasey Musgraves performed her subversive country hit “Follow Your Arrow” (the “roll up a joint, or don’t” line included and un-bleeped) in a stand of neon cacti, and then she beat out Taylor Swift for Best Country Album.
Tonight’s big winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Mary Lambert were joined by Madonna (there to sing an interpolation of “Open Your Heart”) and Queen Latifah (there to officiate the marriages of 33 couples of all shapes, colors and orientations– which is one fewer than planned?) for “Same Love.”
John Legend kept it simple for a performance of his latest single, ‘All of Me,’ at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
The nine-time Grammy Award winner sat at a piano in a white suit and did what he does best — charm us with his masterful voice and piano-playing skills.
At some points in the performance the cameras focused on Legend’s new wife Chrissy Teigen as she adoringly watched her husband. All the performance needed was Oprah Winfrey leaning up against the piano swooning over the singer.
This isn’t the first time the 35-year-old singer-songwriter has won. He was the winner of the 2005 Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Tonight, his one Grammy nomination was for Best R&B Album, which went to Alicia Keys.
