The bit opened with Best New Artist winner Meghan Trainor, whom someone said, "is like if the sassy girl you used to work with at Express just randomly had a singing career."
Two other Grammy winners were featured in the bit: Little Big Town ("I'd rather listen to a turd hitting the toilet than your new songs") and Ed Sheeran ("Why TF are you happy on your records? You're a fucking ginger… Be sad"), as well as MusiCares Person of the Year recipient, Lionel Richie: "If Lionel Richie wants Once, Twice Three times a Lady — than he's a picky Motherfucker."
Other non-Grammy-related highlights include a confused James Taylor, a scowling Charlie Wilson and an amused Mumford & Sons, who were told, "I love how music takes you away to another place. Like Mumford & Sons is playing at this restaurant so now I'm going to another restaurant."
