You’ve seen the red carpet pics. Now get into what was going down in the audience and backstage at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Pics inside….
Before gracing the stage to perform gospel single “Precious Lord, Take My Hand”, Beyonce was kicking back with her husband Jay Z in the audience at the Staples Center for the 57th GRAMMY Awards last night. Bey showed up in a custom beaded and lace Proenza Schouler gown, which didn’t deviate from her usual red carpet looks, but she was beautiful nonetheless.
Mrs. Carter made three wardrobe changes throughout the night. After her red carpet and performance looks, she slipped into a short, sparkly Balmain number as she smiled with the three GRAMMY Awards she won throughout the night. Bey brought home a GRAMMY for Best R&B Performance (“Drunk In Love”), Best R&B Song (“Drunk In Love”) and Best Surround Sound Album (Beyonce). She now reigns as the Grammy’s most nominated female artist of all time, receiving 52 nods and 17 wins. Congrats Bey!
After snapping flicks with her trophies, she did a little dance in front of her hubby:

In the audience….
Awarding winning producer Pharrell (and his custom bedazzled adidas) brought home three GRAMMYS last night as well. He won Best Music Video and Best Pop Solo Performance for his hit “Happy” and Best Urban Contemporary Album for his album G I R L. He snapped it up with Hov and Kanye West.
And look who let bygones be bygones. Kanye West and Taylor Smith chopped it during the ceremony and appeared to be on good terms last night. We know you all remember Yeezy’s infamous “I’m going to let you finish…” antics from the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when he interrupted Taylor during her acceptance speech to stan out for Beyonce. He has since apologized and Taylor has accepted. Good for them.
Adorable Blue Ivy was in the audience and got a chance to chit-chat with Rihanna. Too cute.
Rih also caught up with her good friend Katy Perry while making her audience rounds.
Newcomer Sam Smith took over the GRAMMYs last night, winning four awards. And he was gifted a kiss from the Bajan beauty.
Aww! Rih’s cousin/niece Majesty was also on the scene to see her Auntie RiRi perform her new single “FourFiveSeconds” and win the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration GRAMMY for “Monster” with Eminem.
Rick Ross, Chris Brown, Kanye West and John Legend caught up with each other for a dapper pic. Looking good fellas.
Jamie Foxx’s daughter Annalise was busy making her rounds, meeting all of her fave celebs.
She even got the chance to meet Madonna. Her face though….
During the night, Mary J. Blige took the stage alongside Sam Smith to perform “Stay With Me.” But before she hit the stage, she was spotted getting cozy with her husband Kendu Isaacs.
Super Bowl XLIX champs/New England Patriots ballers Julian Edelman and Malcolm Butler were on the scene.
Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West, John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen was busy snapping us-ies in the audience. Kim snapped this pic with the caption, “This is the Beck won that award face?!?!?!” Oh…ok.
Afterwards, John & Chrissy found themselves locked out of their hotel room. Ha!
25-year-old Tyga and his rumored boo 17-year-old Kylie Jenner hit up the awards together. They were spotted snapping it up with her big sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. These two….
And for the last dose of dadd-daughter adorableness. Russell Simmons and his 15-year-old daughter Ming Lee Simmons were all smiles before enjoying the GRAMMY festivities. She is growing up fast! Fun times.
