2015 Grammy Awards Recap: The Good, The Bad, and the Extremely Ugly

Gaga and Annie Lennox wowed, Sam Smith won everything and Sia looked like a Muppet.

Tony Bennett and Gaga

Madonna looked like a hooker and Lady Gaga was best dressed (no, she wasn’t wearing a gown made of meat). Annie Lennox essentially owned the night and Kim Kardashian donned something that looked like she pulled it out of a Best Western closet and Bedazzeled it. Yes, this all sounds like an alternative universe, but it pretty much captures the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday evening. Sure, there were dozens of performances, but, let’s be honest: Who watches the Grammys for the music? Below you’ll find our picks for the evening’s most memorable moments, including the Material Girl’s assless outfit and a certain celebrity who looked like a defunct Muppet. 

THE GOOD

Lady Gaga’s Red Carpet Look: She looked absolutely stunning, and no meat dress! Congrats on her Grammy win with Tony Bennett for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album! Their performance was captivating.

Thank you @brandonvmaxwell for my beautiful dress! I felt so sexy!

Sam Smith Winning, Like, Everything: He was so humble and adorable throughout the ceremony. His best acceptance speech quote of the evening?: “It was only until I started being myself did the music start to flow and people start to listen.”

Hozier and Annie Lennox Absolutely Took Us to Church: Oh, hell yes. That duet was everything, and Annie gave the best performance of the evening. Frank Bruni tweeted it best: “If Annie Lennox were a religion, I’d go to church daily.”
