Miley Cyrus won her not only her first Grammy for her record, Flowers, but also took home a second. The star has been nominated eight times previously for other records such as Bangerz as well as Party In The USA. After winning, the star gave an amazing performance of the song congratulating herself for taking home the win.

4. Jay-Z’s Speech about Beyonce

Jay-Z took home the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award last night and gave a memorable speech. Jay-Z, famous for boycotting the Grammys because they did not nominate DMX in 1998, called out the Grammys in how they nominate and chose winners. Joined on stage with his daughter Blue Ivy, Jay-Z talked about how Beyonce has the most Grammys out of any artist and still has not won album of the year. He commented how that made no sense in comparison with their own metrics. It was very moving to see an artist speak up for not only himself, but also their wife.

5. Joni Mitchells Performance

Joni Mitchell made her debut performance this year. Famous for songs such as “Big Yellow Taxi” and “Got Till It’s Gone”, Joni Mitchell took the stage to sing her powerful ballad “Both Sides, Now” with powerful singer Brandi Carlile. Joni’s performance was incredibly inspiring to many of the stars in the audience but also the people watching at home.

6. Celine Dion Makes An Appearance

Celine Dion has been very transparent with her struggle against stiff person syndrome, a rare autoimmune disorder which affects speech, mobility, and vision. Fans and celebs alike were thrilled to see her make an appearance last night, even earning a standing ovation after taking the stage. She was there to present the Album of the Year award and gave a moving speech right before saying that she was grateful to be there.

7. Tracy Chapman Sings “Fast Car”

Joni Mitchell was not the only one making an appearance, the singer Tracy Chapman appeared on stage as well performing her hit song “Fast Car” with fellow singer Luke Combs. Combs had recently covered the song pushing it back into the charts and we are so happy he did! Tracy Chapman has not performed live for many years so it was a joy to see her rocking the stage once again.

8. Trevor Noah Pokes Fun at NFL Comments

Trevor Noah was the host of this year’s ceremony. After Taylor Swift had been the butt of the joke at the Golden Globes, Trevor Noah decided to turn that back around. He poked fun at the outrage that some NFL fans had about the camera cutting to Taylor Swift during Travis Kelce’s games by saying that everytime Swift was mentioned, the camera would cut to a former NFL player, then cutting to Terry Cruz who seemed quite surprised to have the attention focused on him.

9. Lizzo and Sza Celebrate

Sza took home more than one Grammy last night. Lizzo presented her the award for Best R&B Song for her single “Snooze” and when Sza arrived on stage they shared a heartfelt moment between the two. Sza even commemorated her long time friendship with her fellow artist. Talk about besties!

10. Stevie Wonder Honors Tony Bennet

Stevie Wonder opened the In Memoriam section of the ceremony with a tribute to his longtime friend Tony Bennet. Wonder sang his own song, “For Once In My Life” as he shared the stage with his friend one last time. The two singers were friends and collaborators for many years and it was great to see him be able to honor the legend Tony Bennet.
