So many pitch-perfect moments — and a fair amount of drama, too! Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Adele were among the superstars involved in some of the most discussed moments from the 58th Annual Grammy Awards at L.A.’s Staples Center on Monday, February 15, as seen in Us Weekly‘s video.
One performance that didn’t quite go as planned was Adele’s rendition of “All I Ask,” which was marred by sound problems, including distracting noises and twangs. When Bieber — who won his first-ever Grammy earlier in the day — took the stage next to perform “Love Yourself” on acoustic guitar, some Twitter users wondered whether the instrument had perhaps been plugged in while he was tuning it backstage. Adele later cleared up the mystery by tweeting that “piano mics fell on the piano strings.”
Also causing a fair amount of buzz was Swift, who took home the coveted Album of the Year prize for 1989. During her acceptance speech, she warned aspiring female performers that people may try to take “credit for your accomplishments or your fame.” This was an apparent reference to Kanye West‘s new song “Famous,” in which he claims to have “made that bitch famous” after swiping the microphone from her during the 2009 MTV VMAs.
Watch Us Weekly‘s video above for other unforgettable Grammy highlights, including Lady Gaga paying tribute to David Bowie, and Swift’s overjoyed reaction to pal Ed Sheeran‘s first-ever win.
