2014 Grammy Awards Recap

Here’s what happened:

11:39PM: The Grammys end with a performance by Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Lindsey Buckingham and Dave Grohl!

11:35PM: Daft Punk wins again! They pick up Album of the Year for “Random Access Memories.”

11:20PM: It’s still going, folks! Taking a pause to say goodbye to those artists we lost last year. Billie Joe Armstrong and Miranda Lambert perform “When Will I Be Loved” to pay tribute to Phil Everly.

11:06PM: Queen Latifah introduces Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis, who perform their poignant song, “Same Love,” featuring Mary Lambert, as 33 diverse couples tie the knot at the Grammys. The multi-nuptials are officiated by the Queen herself. Very moving moment. The hip-hop duo are then joined by Madonna, who sings “Open Your Heart.”


10:59: Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams win Record of the Year for “Get Lucky”!

10:57PM: Presenter Steven Tyler’s impromptu rendition of co-presenter Smokey Robinson’s “You Really Got a Hold on Me” is fantastic!

10:50PM: Jared Leto, a rocker himself with his band 30 Seconds to Mars, pays tribute to Lou Reed, who died last year. Then he introduces the next performance, a collaboration with Metallica and pianist Lang Lang.

10:40PM: Wow, Lorde wins again! She is awarded Song of the Year for “Royals.”

10:36PM: Presenter Cyndi Lauper has a little trouble with her teleprompter, but she introduces a great collaborative performance — Sara Bareilles and Carole King, singing a mashup of King’s greatest hits and Bareilles’ “Brave.”

10:25PM: Here’s a performance I’m looking forward to: Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder sing a “Get Lucky” mashup! Totally killed it! By the way, Pharrell’s hat has its own Twitter account.

10:22PM: Kacey Musgraves wins Best Country Album for “Same Trailer Different Park.”

10:15PM: They are pulling out all the movie stars tonight. Jeremy Renner introduces a performance by Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. Then they are joined by Merle Haggard and Blake Shelton.

10:06PM: Bruno Mars wins Best Pop Vocal Album for “Unorthodox Jukebox”!

10:01PM: Paul McCartney takes the stage for a performance… and guess who joins him? That’s right, Ringo Starr, playing the drums! Everyone at the Grammys looks thrilled for the mini-Beatles reunion.

10:00PM: Julia Roberts makes an appearance to introduce a tribute to The Beatles that will air on CBS February 9

9:45PM: Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons join forces for an energetic mashup performance! Lots of censoring for this one.. thanks to Lamar’s rap. Lamar is going to have to take a nap after that performance. #TheGrammys tweets, “Social media has spoken! kendricklamar and imaginedragons is the performance of the night so far!”

9:35PM: Presenter Jamie Foxx is hilarious, talking about all the shenanigans backstage. Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z win Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Holy Grail.” JT is not in attendance but Jay-Z accepts, telling daughter Blue Ivy, “Daddy’s got you a gold sippie cup!”

9:31PM: Ringo Starr performs an oldie but goodie, “Photographs.” Will Paul McCartney join him onstage? Alas, no.

9:23PM: Lorde wins Best Pop Solo Performance for “Royals.”

9:16PM: Pink is a frustrated Cirque du Soleil performer. She twirls in the air again, like she did at the Grammys last year, singing “Try.” Then she tussles with a very hot dancer in a dramatic moment. Fun frontman Nate Ruess then joins Pink (who puts on a skirt) to perform “Just Give Me a Reason.”


9:05PM: Ah, the lovely Taylor Swift takes the stage to play the keys and soulfully sing “All Too Well.” Maybe the hair shaking is a little unnecessary but a nice performance nonetheless.


8:58PM: John Legend elegantly plays the piano, singing his song “All of Me.”

8:48PM: Keith Urban and Gary Clark Jr. take the stage to sing Urban’s song, “Cop Car.”

8:43PM: Robin Thicke and Chicago do a medley of Chicago’s greatest hits! Bringing it back, old school. Then, Thicke blurs the lines… without a twerkin’ Miley Cyrus in sight. Well done, boys.

8:32PM: Steve Coogan is at the Grammys? He isn’t there to talk about his multi-Oscar nominated film “Philomena” because that would “tacky,” but rather to introduce Katy Perry performing a creepy “Dark Horse” rendition with Juicy J. Ohhh, there’s pyrotechnics, too!

8:29PM: Daft Punk wins Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Get Lucky.” Pharrell Williams accepts the award because the other guys are dressed as robots. That’s a bold choice.


8:25PM: Hunter Hayes debuts his new song “Invisible.” Powerful.

8:15PM: Lorde performs her hit song “Royals.” Poor thing, the 17-year-old looks a little nervous at first but ultimately pulls off a good Gothic performance.

8:13PM: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis win Best New Artist!

8:07PM: Host LL Cool J hits the stage. “Music has the power to bring people together like no other… maybe not as together as Beyoncé and Jay Z, but…”He gives a powerful opening speech about how music has brought him here today, and then calls out many of the artists in the audience for how music brought them all there.

8:05PM: Hubby Jay Z joins Bey onstage, doing his rap thing. The two get very comfortable with each other. They are definitely the music biz’s hottest couple.


8:00PM: The Grammys begin! Beyoncé opens the show, looking ultra sexy, silhouetted, sitting in a chair, singing “Drunken Love.”
