Grammys 2013: Top 10 Moments From the Awards Show

It's been an exciting Grammys night! From the stars who worked it on the red carpet (we're looking at you, Carrie Underwood!) to the enthusiastic audience (could Lena Dunham be any more excited for boyfriend and fun. singer Jack Antonoff's wins?), we've been glued to the screen. But there were definitely a couple of highlights that helped define this year's awards ceremony, so we compiled our top ten fave moments below.

1. Taylor Swift's Surprise British Accent.
Take note, Harry Styles! While opening up the Grammy Awards, Taylor Swift sung her hit "We Are Never Getting Back Together" and during the song, threw a bit of a jab at her British ex Styles. "So he calls me up and he's like, 'I still love you,' and I'm like, 'I'm sorry, I'm busy opening up the Grammys,'" she said in the middle of the song, using a British accent. "And we're never getting back together, like, ever."

2. Carrie Underwood's Light-Up Dress.
When Carrie Underwood took the stage, we weren't sure if it was the country beauty or a life-size Barbie, complete with a battery pack. As she sung "Blown Away" and then switched to "Two Black Cadillacs" her outfit changed as well -- as different pictures and designs were projected on her white dress. As one AOL Music staffer noted, "Is she giving birth to butterflies?" or was she auditioning to be an extra in "The Hunger Games" District 1? We're still not sure.

3. Katy Perry Introducing "Best New Artist."
While reading the nominees for "Best New Artist," the always-witty singer offered to the would-be losers in the category. "If you don't win, don't worry. I was never even nominated in this category and I have my own eyelash line," she said as the audience laughed. Well played, Katy. Somehow though, we can't picture Hunter Hayes, Alabama Shakes, The Lumineers, or Frank Ocean (who all lost to fun.) EVER having an eyelash line.

4. Frank Ocean/Chris Brown Feud Heats Up.
Weeks after the two singers allegedly fought outside a studio, tensions still seemed to be running high at tonight's Grammys. As Ocean collected two awards -- one for "Rap/Sung Collaboration" and the other for "Best Urban Contemporary Album" (where he beat out Chris Brown) -- Chris didn't give him a standing ovation, despite the entire Staples Center doing so. Can't we all just get along?

5. Rihanna Performs "Stay."
Although RiRi is known for her smash club hits, she proved that even when she takes it down a notch, she can still own it. Singer Mikky Ekko joined her for the stripped down performance, a definite standout of the night!

Frank was robbed tonight
friarsfire 11th-Feb-2013 04:52 am (UTC)
pretty much fun. over Frank? Like, serious? fun.? Like, they fuck up the grammar of almost any perfectly acceptable sentence.
noon 11th-Feb-2013 04:53 am (UTC)
RIGHT i keep pausing after i say "fun." even when it's clearly in the middle of a sentence and it makes me hate them lmao
shelostcontro1 11th-Feb-2013 04:56 am (UTC)
yes like serious. Some nights is a very strong album that has done extremely well. Those dudes deserve the recognition after 12 years in the business. i like frank too, but that doesn't make fun undeserving

I am happy he won two and was able to perform and accept an award though.
pistol_eyes 11th-Feb-2013 04:58 am (UTC)
seriously....How did he not win best new artist?
omgmar 11th-Feb-2013 04:58 am (UTC)
I agree. There hasn't been an artist in ages whose music has touched me the way Frank's has.
hearthecity 11th-Feb-2013 04:59 am (UTC)
it's probably a good thing he didn't win too many awards. I want him to stick around for a long time and overhype can be a killer
chandyland11 11th-Feb-2013 05:08 am (UTC)
lol WHAT are all of you smoking tbh, did you miss his trainwreck of a performance????
untxi 11th-Feb-2013 04:55 pm (UTC)
Yep. The night's lesson was that you have to be 1. white, and 2. bland, boring & unoriginal in order to win any of the big awards.
grumpibear501 11th-Feb-2013 04:51 am (UTC)
There's a list already? That was quick.

I don't get what was so "memorable Grammy performance" worthy about Carrie's light up dress. This isn't the Hunger Games. Your dress doesn't need to do something fancy. And the light patterns didn't even really have anything to do with her song..?

Rihanna looked GORGEOUS, every thing else aside.

Too many performances, not enough awards therefore makes the Grammys a joke.
satellite__eyes 11th-Feb-2013 04:51 am (UTC)
What is this flop list tho
agentnever 11th-Feb-2013 04:51 am (UTC)
Everyone side-eyeing Chris for not standing up was hilarious. Grow up, man.

"And we're never getting back together, like, ever."
Didn't he tragically dump you Ms. Victim? I doubt he cares.

i thought she broke up with him after he said "something he shouldn't have". it said she caught the first flight out or something idk.
pixiegerms 11th-Feb-2013 06:17 am (UTC)
this is true.
beachwee 11th-Feb-2013 03:07 pm (UTC)
she did
ferfi 11th-Feb-2013 08:18 am (UTC)
that's what i don't get. people keep talking about the "shade" she threw. what shade? how in the world would that ever be considered shade? harry doesn't give a shit. he finished his contract with her.
oh7 11th-Feb-2013 03:44 pm (UTC)
I thought it would have been rude if Brown hadn't even clapped for Frank when he won.
ponpiri 11th-Feb-2013 04:28 pm (UTC)
Why should he stand? He was polite enough to clap. That white suit tho lol
imamonsterr 11th-Feb-2013 04:51 am (UTC)

I was sooo happy to see Damien and Ziggy up there

caitie_roxs13 11th-Feb-2013 04:52 am (UTC)
Rihanna sounded so freaking good tonight. My favorite thing about the Grammys.
breadprincess 11th-Feb-2013 05:47 am (UTC)
I was pleasantly surprised, she normally doesn't sound that good live.
hotel 11th-Feb-2013 10:29 pm (UTC)
i thought she sounded good last year (?) performing "we found love".
tankmachine 11th-Feb-2013 04:52 am (UTC)
1. Adele upstaging Mumford
2. Bruno/Sting/Rihanna/Ziggy
3. Adele side eying Chris Brown
4. Frank being qt and doing Forrest Gump
5. Rihanna doing Stay

that's literally it

On point.
rpsuc 11th-Feb-2013 04:52 am (UTC)
What a flop list. Carrie's dress? Really?
cukoo4cocopuffs 11th-Feb-2013 04:22 pm (UTC)
That dress was horrific.
silentxstrom 11th-Feb-2013 04:53 am (UTC)
the grammys were awful. such a clusterfuck, I can't even.
friarsfire 11th-Feb-2013 04:54 am (UTC)
yep Zero regrets for not watching it. I only yt'd the Beyonce/Ellen bit and I'm sure the few other noteworthy moments will be gif'd.
pixiegerms 11th-Feb-2013 06:19 am (UTC)
i thought it was pretty good this year actually.
myhipusername 11th-Feb-2013 09:49 am (UTC)
me too
bibbysbaby 11th-Feb-2013 04:40 pm (UTC)
same. I do wish they were a bit shorter. they could be about an hour shorter.
ronnie_luvs_u 11th-Feb-2013 04:53 am (UTC)
all the basic moments.

morgan90 11th-Feb-2013 04:53 am (UTC)
