The 2017 Grammy Awards took place in Los Angeles on Sunday night; as usual, the annual musical ceremony did not disappoint. In the likely chance that you haven’t pulled an all-nighter to catch all of the action unfold in real-time, read on for the most unforgettable moments from the 59th edition of the show.
Beyoncé Steals the Show
Shortly after breaking the internet with her Instagram pregnancy reveal, Beyoncé took to the stage to perform two songs (Love Drought and Sandcastles) from her Grammy-winning album Lemonade. Foregoing the red carpet, the singer (who was nominated for a whopping nine awards) made her grand entrance wearing an elaborate gold headpiece and a dazzling two-piece by Peter Dundas, former creative director of Roberto Cavalli, her growing baby bump on full display. The singer relied on symbolism for her performance, including references to a goddess, motherhood, and femininity. She inevitably stole the show, in classic Beyoncé manner.
The Ultimate Carpool Karaoke
Following Queen B’s emotional performance, the award show’s host James Corden organized the most epic Carpool Karaoke, which featured everyone from Jennifer Lopez and John Legend to Blue Ivy Carter (who unexpectedly crashed the performance, donning a pink Gucci tuxedo) inside a cardboard cutout of a car.
Adele Sweeps (Again)
Clad in a custom-made Givenchy gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, Adele snagged the biggest awards of the night: Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and Record of the Year. The singer, who also swept the 2012 ceremony, was up against artists including Rihanna, Drake, Twenty One Pilots, Mike Posner, Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, and Lukas Graham. In her tearful Album of the Year speech, she said: “I can’t possibly accept this award, the Lemonade album was just so monumental, Beyoncé.” The British singer then broke off the top half of the award, to reportedly give to Beyoncé.
The triumphant singer also paid tribute to the late George Michael, who passed away in December last year, with a rendition of his song Fastlove, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd.
Like Father, Like Son
DJ Khaled attended the ceremony alongside his wife Nicole Tuck and his four-month-old son Asahd, who donned a matching custom tuxedo for the occasion. The fashion-forward newborn looked adorable in a maroon suit, paired with a black bow tie and sneakers. Shortly after the show, Khaled—who was nominated for Best Rap Album—dropped his new single titled Shining, which features power couple Beyoncé and Jay Z.
Chrissy Teigen, Rihanna, and Katy Perry Debut New Hairstyles
The Grammys red carpet is known to usher in transformative beauty looks, and this year was no different. Case in point: Chrissy Teigen, who departed from her signature, waist-grazing lengths for a slightly-damp bob. Katy Perry turned the notch up on her freshly-dyed platinum chop, and a fashionably late Rihanna swapped her raven dreadlocks in favor of soft, auburn waves.
