Behind the Grammys: How the Staples Center Turns Into Music’s Big Night

On a day of rehearsals, placards take the place of the actual guests.


Last night as the 2015 Grammy broadcast stretched across three and a half hours, TV viewers saw massive performances from Kanye West, RihannaSia and Pharrell (among others: the show featured 23 sets). The folks lucky enough to be seated in the Staples Center caught even more of the action, but Rolling Stone got the ultimate view of the Grammys — backstage, before the big show even began, our cameras captured just what it takes to bring together Music's Biggest Night, from John Legend's rehearsals to Madonna's drum set-up.
