While the nightbirds were chirping and young children were being tucked tightly into their duvets, we were all tuning into LA time to watch the most important night for music of the year — the Grammys. With diamond-studded designer pieces trickling down the red carpet, we geared up for an evening brimming with peak pop culture moments, mind-blowing performances and deliciously cheesy presenting skits. Unlike its predecessors, we are pleased to confirm that the night went off without a hitch — tickling our tear ducts and funny bones in the process. As always, we look to appease our post-event blues by reminiscing the very best moments, from the biggest wins to the most emotional tributes.

So to see the moments which had us fighting the urge to sleep, head below now…

Jon Batiste left no trophies behind

Though we often show up for the celeb gossip and the enviable outfits, the Grammys would be nothing without the iconic golden accolades. Leaving barely any left for other artists, Jon Batiste made a sweepstake with his album We Are earning him the title of Album of the Year. Having broken Grammy history with a total of 11 nominations, the artist went on stage to collect five awards for Best American Roots Performance, Best American Roots Song, Best Music Video and Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media. Proving exactly how he managed it, Jon also took hold of his microphone, gifting us with an arm-raising performance that we will be re-watching for the rest of the day.

Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion take things up with Donatella

Following the scandal and dramatics of the Oscars slap-gate, we were put at ease by Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion who served us with a perfectly executed skit. While presenting the award for Best New Artist, the duo took to the podium draped in the same Versace wet-look leggings and safety-pinned slips. Recreating the legendary outfit-blunder between Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, Donatella leapt on stage to transform both of the artist’s looks — leaving all the fashion girlies well and truly fed with entertainment.

Olivia Rodrigo makes her first ever appearance

While most of us were sneaking bottles of barefoot into our friend’s backyard parties in our teenage years, Olivia Rodrigo was dressing in Versace to attend her first ever night at the Grammys at just 19 years old. Not only that, but the SOUR singer-songwriter also took the stage a total of four times — once to perform, and the others to collect her multitude of record-breaking wins. Bursting into tears as soon as her name was announced, she declared that her dreams have come true. If only our past heartbreaks had brought us that much success…

BTS turned everyone into fangirls

It is undeniable that the globally-acclaimed K-pop group BTS have had us all firmly in a chokehold since their rein began, and it would appear no celebrity however big or small has been able to escape their addictive charm. Singing their hit “Butter” in a spy-inspired performance, the band left the internet rolling thanks to their interactions with the likes of Olivia Rodrigo. If you have any clue what V may have whispered to her, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Billie Eilish made us “happier than ever”

@.billiespovss i’m only uploading the second part of her performance because i don’t have the 10 minute feature but SHE DID AMAZING OMGG #billieeilish #billiespovss #grammys #grammys2022 #hte original sound – 🙂

Though it is a rarity, we would dare to say that Billie Eilish’s performance of “happier than ever” IRL is even more breathtaking than its studio recording. Packed with her raw powerhouse vocals and a melody played straight from the heartstrings, the track never goes amiss whenever we dig ourselves into our sad girl playlists. Performing the track under an intense downpour of rain, no emotion was left unspilled as she belted out the lyrics beside her brother. And despite the track not winning its nominated award, it still very much holds first place in our hearts.

Doja Cat, a woman of the people

While much of the evening’s events seemed preened and polished to perfection, Doja came through with some refreshingly-relatable realism by almost missing her big moment due to an impromptu bathroom break. Winning best pop duo along with SZA for their effort in “Kiss Me More”, Doja ditched her usual comedic persona to give an acceptance speech that had us all clutching tissues.

Lil Nas X went on a selfie spree

Thankfully, we aren’t the only ones who get a little picture-happy after a few glasses of celebratory champagne. Taking to Instagram, Lil Nas X kept the internet served with an influx of our favourite faces — including the likes of Jack Harlow, Lady Gaga and Doja Cat.

Lady Gaga pays a tribute to her bestie

A new mantra to live your life by: Find someone who loves you like Lady Gaga loves Tony Bennett. Dedicating a spell-binding performance to her friend and long-time collaborator, she sang her title track “Love for Sale” followed by “Do I Love You” while a montage of pictures of their friendship played behind her. Rounding off the performance by saying, “I love you Tony, we miss you”, Gaga put an end to an evening of tears, laughter and tangible love.
