AC/DC rocked out, Sam Smith had an amazing night, Kristen Wiig danced to Sia’s “Chandelier,” and Kanye almost pulled off another spotlight-stealing moment when Beck won Album of the Year at the 2015 Grammy Awards. Held on Sunday, February 8th, the 57th Annual Grammy Awards were a surprisingly somber affair with many of the night’s performers opting to sing songs with important messages. But the night wasn’t entirely about using the stage to get serious, as Madonna decided she would do her best impression of a matador before ascending to the arena’s roof and Miranda Lambert (in black leather) got bleeped while performing “Little Red Wagon.”
