Tonight marks the musical comeback of Justin Timberlake, the return of R&B music and will see Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Sting pay tribute to the great Bob Marley.
Now, stay with us as we live-blog along with the Grammy Awards….
Taylor Swift opened the show with her #1 hit We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together – a song not worthy enough to grace the Grammy stage, one would have thought. However, she is sure to make headlines after making a dig at ex-beau Harry Styles as she imitated his British accent as she sang the line ‘So he called me up and he’s like “I still love you”‘.
Adele has won the first award of the night with Best Pop Solo Performance for her live rendition of ‘Set Fire to the Rain‘. Congratulations, Adele!
Before accepting the award the 21 songstress hugged fellow nominee Rihanna and praised her fellow female artists for their hard work.
Miguel made his Grammy debut as he performed his Grammy Award-winning song ‘Adorn‘ joined by Wiz Khalifa.
Fun. won the award of Song of the Year for breakthrough single ‘We Are Young‘.
Introduced by Beyoncé and Ellen DeGeneres, Justin Timberlake returned to the Grammy Awards stage to perform his comeback single ‘Suit & Tie‘, accompanied by guest rapper Jay-Z, and he also performed another track from his upcoming album ‘The 20/20 Experience‘ entitled ‘Pusher Love Girl‘.
Frank Ocean wins his first ever Grammy Award for his album ‘channel ORANGE‘ as he takes home the award for Best Urban Contemporary Album – beating rival Chris Brown who remained seated as Ocean went onstage to collect his accolade. Congratulations, Frank!
Maroon 5 take to the stage performing their current single ‘Daylight‘, with Alicia Keys performing ‘Girl On Fire‘ also.
Keith Urban announces Kelly Clarkson as the winner of Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Stronger‘ and she gives perhaps the best Grammy acceptance speech of all time: “Miguel, I don’t know who the hell you are – but we have to sing together!”
Rihanna and Mikky Ekko perform their duet ‘Stay‘. The Roc Nation beauty gave a stunning rendition of the song with her powerful, emotional vocals – but the chemistry between the 2 singers was vacant. Oh well, Rihanna did an amazing job anyway. Best performance of the night.
Frank Ocean wins the second of his six nominations as his collaboration with Jay-Z and The Dream (‘No Church In The Wild‘) receives the award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
Kelly Clarkson takes to the Grammy stage to pay tribute to the two Lifetime Achievement recipients Patti Page and Carole King, kicking things off with a rendition of ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman‘.

Katy Perry just stole the show with her 60-second spot whilst introducing the award for Best New Artist. Fun. won the award and lead singer Nate Ruess praised fellow nominees Frank Ocean and The Lumineers expressing his shock at winning the band’s second award of the night.
Country singer Hunter Hayes began his performance with a piano-driven version of his hit single ‘Wanted‘ before welcoming Carrie Underwood onstage, who sang ‘Blown Away‘.
Prince is welcomed onstage to present the award for Record of the Year. Gotye wins the award for his #1 single with Kimbra ‘Somebody That I Used To Know‘.
