I usually never watch the Grammys and honestly wasn’t planning on doing so last night. But when my friend asked me if I was going to participate in the festivities at brunch, I decided since I was avoiding the cold, to check it out. The show itself had high and low moments. It wasn’t fabulous but it certainly wasn’t the most boring thing I’ve seen. So, whether you missed it or want to relive it, check out the most memorable moments. The asterisks represent high points of the night.

  • I loved adele’s dress

  • Robin

    Maroon 5 & Alicia Keys: best performance of the night!!

  • iReezy

    I think a Kelly Clarkson/Miguel collabo would be amazing – the single, video, and live performance.

  • iReezy

    I missed the show this year but I’ve been on a YouTube/fashion blog kick getting caught up. I didn’t think Jay-Z shaded The-Dream…that was a moment of truth and hilarity. He looked a mess and was rightfully put on blast. I will always love me some Jay, but based on the pic of him pouring cognac into that Grammy, he was acting a little Kanye-ish lol. Se la vie, he’s allowed to act a fool sometimes since he’s always cool, calm, and collected. And I liked Bey’s outfit, dressed down and still f-l-y. Kelly’s dress and JT’s performance were the evening’s best moments IMO.

  • I’m so over the Chris Brown and Frank Ocean beef because the media seems to over look Frank Ocean’s part in this whole beef. The first situation of a Frank and Chris beef was when Frank mistook Chris Brown’s compliment as an insult but yet the only person who was getting negative recognition for it was Chris Brown. Now recently in this parking lot brawl, even though it was stated that it started with Frank Ocean crying about Chris parking in “his” parking spot, people want to play the Chris Brown getting into a fight with the gay rapper card. Like come on, just because he’s gay doesn’t make him less of a man! The only reason Chris Brown keeps getting painted in a negative way is because of the whole Rihanna situation that happened before Frank Ocean, had that not happened I doubt the media would be so pro Frank Ocean.

      This! Frank is a douchebag

  • jackieOsassin

    i miss every damn thing. : (

    last night belonged to walking dead though, sorry.

  • FromUR2UB

    I usually miss the Grammy’s every year, but watched this year just to see if people were going to comply with the dress code. Clever marketing ploy Grammy committee!

  • Solo40

    Lol….flatline *Dead* @ Adele and the dress from the Wiz. Y’all are beyond crazy!

  • Soulsis

    Miguel is actually an artist. The fact that he left last night empty handed is why I did not watch the show to begin with!

    • Purple Kisses

      Miguel won the Grammy for best R&B song. It just wasn’t shown on TV

      • Soulsis

        Takes a seat and puts a smile on my face. Thank you Purple Kisses.

  • pickneychile

    Chris Brown’s clapping was a sign of growth and “majority”? LOL I think the word is maturity. Anyway, the Grammys didn’t really hold my attention.

    • Taj

      I caught that too. It seems as if the bar has been set low in regards to CB showing some decorum and not acting a fool.

  • Jaeda

    Frank Ocean SUCKED!!!!! singing about Forrest Gump badly at that was the worst performance of the night The best hands down was the Bob Marley tribute and poor Adele to be so pretty and so young smh at that dress Kelly, Katy, JLo And Rihanna looked good

    • Dee

      Frank Ocean’s performances always put me to sleep (SNL, Grammys)

    • iReezy

      I was so mad when he started whistling! WTF Frank?!

  • bigdede

    Most Black people didn’t know who Miguel was until this album came out so for so many to get upset because Kelly didn’t know him is stupid. Also, so what they are on the same labels. Most people know that record labels have different departments. There is a A&R for pop music, Latin music, Rap, R&B, etc. It’s rare that Kelly would even be in the same room with Miguel because they are two different music genres. But with Miguel’s awesome performance and Kelly’s shoutout, that will help him big time in getting his name out there.

    • Kahekili

      I disagree. Most of Miguel’s fan base is the Black R&B crowd.

      • bigdede

        Half the Black folks at my job didn’t even know this was his second album. Miguel’s performance and Kelly’s shoutout will help him. It’s not like Miguel is going platinum. He should be though. Look how long it took Miguel to even get airplay for his first album. He had a single out for the longest but it wasn’t until Sure Thing that he started to get some airplay. So just because Miguel has a Black R&B fanbase doesn’t mean a lot of Black people know him.

    It was a little disappointing that even being politely asked to cover up, that was apparently too much to ask of some women. I’m looking at you Kelly and Katy. Even Rihanna covered all the way up, for goodness sake. And looked stunning I might add

    • kierah

      Rihanna’s dress was all kinds of see through so I don’t much about her coverage…
      Kelly and Katy were covered. They weren’t obscene.

      Anyway if the Grammys were serious about their little memo, they would have issued it months ago – not a week ago. That was hardly polite. Everyone already has their dresses and their looks and they aren’t changing. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
      You see what happens when people switch up. We get the Twin Horrors of Beyonce and Adele’s outfits.

      • GirlSixx

        Trueeeee!!! What were they gonna do, ask them to leave??!!!

        Although I was feeling Bey’s top, the pants not so much.. She looked very comfortable.

      • mac

        Katy was covered? Lol yea we’re done here.

  • Reese

    Dang Kelly did that dress all kinds of justice.

  • Miguel didnt need Wiz on stage with him.

  • AnonyChick

    Of the videos I’ve seen posted online (I didn’t watch last night), my fave is the Bob Marley tribute! That was perfection! Some of the other videos I want to see have been taken down, unfortunately. Oh, well. Bruno Mars is ALWAYS an excellent performer. ALWAYS. Everyone else was great, too.

  • ladylove22

    Kelly looked amazing best dressed for sure .. I did not like B work suit too casual imo .. The Dream really just really s.m.h

  • Trisha_B

    The best, Bob Marley tribute (would have been better if they did more Bob songs & didn’t do Bruno’s song), worst Frank Ocean & his booboos….Miguel was most def cheated

  • MLS2698

    The comparison pic with Adele…….not kool.

  • No name

    My fave was the Bob Marley tribute! No other comment other than the fact that Kelly looked great and Jay Z is my least favorite celeb after last night. Arrogance at its best!

    • MLS2698

      Yeah, Jay was rude ( and maybe drunk). But ol’ boy did look kind of busted, like he should have been standing on a corner. I guess he doesn’t have a ” stylist.”
