Ciara's Best "goody" (sorry, had to reference my favorite song when I was 13) was definitely her baby bump! Honestly, this is the prettiest I've ever seen her! From the dress to the face to the hair, it was all glowing and gorgeous!
Aaand the Best Dressed Couple goes to: John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.
Taylor Swift doesn't need a knight in shining armor tonight, because she's wearing the chain mail! My friend Spencer pointed out on Twitter (I compulsively live-tweet the Grammys, obviously) Tay ditched her "signature" red lip tonight! Fingers crossed she's retiring it permanently, because without that distracting lipstick, I can focus on the rest of her beautiful face, on point ponytail, and sparkling gown!
Taylor's friend Sarah Hyland may not be a musician, but she sure did rock the red carpet tonight! I thought she looked adorable, in an adult way, if that makes sense.
Ariana Grande's speaking voice really annoyed me on this Nickelodeon show I had to watch while nannying this summer, but she's quite the crooner! I actually loved her hair and makeup tonight, and the Dolce dress grew on me. Still not loving the shoes.
Colbie Caillet's dress was my absolute favorite when I watched the stars work the carpet. After seeing how all the dresses photographed, I'm between her and Taylor.
First of all, Pharrell had quite the winning night. Second of all, the guy is 40. And he looks 20. Third of all, I'm convinced he's channeling Smokey the Bear.
Lots of people were obsessed with Katy Perry's Valentino, but I was not one of them. It's whimsical and musical, just like Katy, but the tattered looking tulle on the shoulders made me feel meh about it. However, she'll always be my "If I could look like one celebrity" go-to.
Ugh. Sometimes I just don't "get" Madonna.
Just like Katy Perry, lots of people were all about this dress on Paris Hilton. However, I was just terrified some of her orange makeup would rub off on the white dress...The Grammys are always fun, because there's a lot less talking and a lot more showing off talent! Here are a few of my favorite performers tonight:
It should come as no surprise that my favorite performance of the night would be Taylor Swift performing All Too Well. This heartfelt song has some of the most beautiful lyrics I've ever heard (ex: "You call me up again just to break me like a promise. So casually cruel in the name of being honest. I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying there, because I remember it all too well."). Lena Dunham said it well when she described the performance as "vulnerable, skilled, and sparkling." Her dress was pretty stunning, too!
Sure, I may not like the song, but how can you NOT be obsessed with Beyonce and Jay Z? Like the dynamic duo leaving the stage together had me aww-ing audibly.
Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons had everyone Taylor-Swift-dancing, and I mean that in the best way possible.
Robin Thicke plus Chicago equals MUCH better than Robin Thicke plus Miley.
I'll be honest: Daft Punk confuses me. Stevie Wonder does not. Plus I've got some sort of career-crush on Pharrell. Like that guy's work is prolific.
P!nk never fails to make the rest of us feel terrible about ourselves. As someone on Twitter put it, most of us have a hard enough time singing in the shower without drowning, while this chick sings while cirque-de-soleiling (now a verb) and doing acro-yoga with some ripped dude, only to gracefully duet and show off those pipes with Nate from fun. a minute later.
Well, folks, that's a wrap. What a way to end the weekend! Did I forget to include anything major? Speaking of missing things, I'm bummed Catherine and Shaun had their televised wedding tonight of all nights, by the way. Thank goodness for DVR, because I'll definitely be watching The Bachelor Wedding tomorrow night!
