Nobody swung from an actual chandelier, but the 57th Annual Grammy Awards were a three-and-a-half-hour emotional roller coaster, shifting from moments that were thrilling (AC/DC’s pyrorific opening set) to sober (President Obama’s message about domestic violence) to historic (Paul McCartney taking the stage with Kanye West and Rihanna). Legends like Annie Lennox stepped in to raise the bar, while West threatened to step onstage and cause a scene when Beck grabbed Album of the Year from Beyoncé — this time he was kidding (mostly). After Taylor Swift finished shaking it off in the front row, we were left with these 21 moments that best summarize the night’s beautiful highs and embarrassing lows.
