Time To Celebrate The Music Industry Again

Well its that time of year again where we showcase and highlight all the epic music that got us through another year. The 2014 Grammy Awards took place at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles last night. The star-studded event featured performances from the world's most talented artists. Here is the rundown of the category nominees and winners... CLICK ME!!

Now that we have that out of the way lets get to the real reason people watch the Grammy's; the live performances. For your viewing pleasure and ease of access here are all the performances from the 56th Grammy Awards show starting with the leading lady of the industry Beyonce and rounding it out with the song of the year from the legendary Daft Punk.

Beyoncé & Jay Z performing "Drunk In Love"

Lorde performing "Royals"

Katy Perry & Juicy J performing "Dark Horse"

Chicago & Robin Thicke perform a medley including "Blurred Lines"

John Legend performing "All Of Me"

Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons performing a mashup of "Radioactive" and "M.A.A.D. City"

Ringo Starr solo performance

Pink! and Nate Reuss performing "Just Give Me A Reason"

Ringo Starr & Paul McCartney perform together

Taylor Swift performing "All Too Well"

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Performing "Same Love" with Mary Lambert and Madonna

Daft Punk, Pharrell, & Stevie Wonder perform "Get Lucky"

Oh and before I forget shout-outs to LL Cool J who hosted the show for the third consecutive time on Sunday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Oddly enough apparently countries that have anti gay laws in place such as Nigeria, Russia and Jamaica had forced intermission during the Mackelmore "Same Love" song due to fear of showing gay marriage in their respective countries; go figure. All in all it was a decent showing for the industry but the question remaining on everyone's mind is; "What the hell was Pharrell thinking wearing that hat to the Grammy's?" He my dude and all being a trendsetter but the internet blew up wondering what was up with the hat; what do you think?
