Sam Smith was the star of the night, taking home four statuettes including Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Known for his heartbreaking ballads, his multiple GRAMMY wins were more than enough to cheer him up. Even before the ceremony the 22-year-old singer was optimistic about what's to come.
"I definitely am [ready for love]," Sam told ET. "But I'm a melancholy person. It's how I'm always going to be."
Sam felt the love on Sunday, being flanked by Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Sir Paul McCartney at different times during the night. More impressive was that Sam already had his post-GRAMMY plans set!
"I'm gonna go to In-N-Out Burger straight away, because I've been juicing for the last few weeks," Sam said.
Another watercooler moment was Kanye West nearly pulling a Kanye when Beck shocked everyone, beating Beyonce, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and Pharrell Williams for Album of the Year.
As Beck went on to accept his award, Kanye stormed the stage but bailed at the last minute, a callback to his 2009 Video Music Awards rant after Taylor Swift beat for Best Female Video.
Instead, Kanye reserved his thoughts for E!'s post-GRAMMY show. "Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should have given his award to Beyonce," he said.
In an interview with US Weekly, Beck responded to Kanye's slam: "I thought [Beyonce] was going to win. Come on, she's Beyonce! ... You can't please everybody, man. I still love [Kanye] and think he's genius. I aspire to do what he does."
"I think [Kanye] is whining a little too much," Z100 radio host Elvis Duran told ET. "I love Kanye. I love his work and I think he's a smart guy, but he was coming out and saying Beck didn't deserve Album of the Year. That's not fair. Beck is a great performer."
Another surprise was Kristen Wiig's expressive interpretive dance with Maddie Ziegler for Sia's captivating "Chandelier" performance.
And Taylor Swift, who went home empty-handed, said her dating life was far from on her mind.
"I'm not going to walk home with any men tonight," Taylor assured ET. "I'm going, I'm going to go hang out with my friends and then I go home to the cats! Men get me in trouble."
