On Saturday, February 12th, some of the biggest names in music gathered together to honor some of the best in the business. That’s right, the Grammys have returned once again. As known by most, the Grammy is one of the most prestigious awards that can given to any artist, making it a big deal for anyone to get.

Expected by all, the night was full of stars in well-designed outfits like Jennifer Lopez in her gorgeous light purple Ralph & Russo dress or Heidi Klum in her short, silver Philipp Plein dress that was just beautiful.

There were also styles that were just straight-out crazy as can be seen with CeeLo Green who was literally covered in gold from head to toe as his new moniker “Gnarly Davidson”, being quite the eyesore, or Joy Villa in her dress with “Make America Great Again!” and “Trump” emblazoned on it, making quite the statement, as can be expected at a televised awards show.

Most importantly, we have the awards that are given to the best with many jaw-dropping, or pants-dropping, moments. When Twenty One Pilots were announced as winners of the Best Pop Duo/Group, the duo quickly took off their pants and went up to accept their award, telling how when they weren’t big and watched the Grammys back with friends in Ohio, they were all in underwear and promising that if they were to accept the award, it would be like that; also telling all that “Anyone, from anywhere, can do anything.”

We also had the very wonderful and heartwarming moment when Adele took to the stage to receive her award for Album of the year, speaking how she was a fan of Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” and how she believed it deserved the award and broke her Grammy in half for her.

The performances at the show were also worth the watch that night. The Weeknd performed hits “I Feel It Coming” and “Starboy” alongside the iconic electronic duo Daft Punk, who rarely makes public appearances, a definite big deal. Metallica and Lady Gaga turns out to be a surprisingly great mix when the well-known artist and band performed “Moth Into Flame” and even with technical difficulties, pulled off a terrific show.

Beyoncé was able to create a visually pleasant performance of ”Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” with the use of holograms, bringing out a positive theme of empowerment that even people that wouldn’t consider themselves fans of her work, could watch in amazement. Queen Bey was also dressed almost as if she were a goddess, like her millions of fans see her as.

Many artists also paid tribute to some of the other artists lost back in 2016, like Bruno Mars performing “Let’s Go Crazy” in honor of Prince, and Demi Lovato, Andra Day, Little Big Town, and Tori Kelly making a tribute to the Bee Gees.

With James Corden, host of “The Late Late Show,” being the host of the event, it was truly a great night. Corden was able to keep the night alive and joyful for people all over, making the audience laugh every time he was on stage. From his opening with set malfunction jokes, Carpool Karaoke from his talk show brought to the crowd, and tons of humorous self-depreciating jokes scattered here and there, it was a great choice for him to take on the show.

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards turned out to be once again a wonderful night for many to experience. Whether at home or live at the event, there was a bit of everything for all tuning in to enjoy, from adored celebrities to live performances from many genres, bringing people together to share the common love of music.
