Last night’s annual installment of the Grammy Awards was a big night for VH1 You Oughta Know alums and the phrase “get lucky.” Sexy marrieds Beyoncé and Jay Z embraced the public eye enough to show off some Carter family cuteness, while Queen Latifah married 33 couples to the sounds of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ “Same Love.” But is that really all that went down?

Grammys 2014: Was Beyonce Lip-Synching During “Drunk In Love”?

Beyonce Jay Z

Royal couple Beyoncé and Jay Z have been responsible for performances that both make us cry and cheer with joy. And after a 2013 that saw two new albums from the Carter clan, it’s fitting the invincible duo kicked off tonight’s Grammy Awards. For many, performing “Drunk In Love,” a sultry ode to sloppy sexing off B’s self-titled fifth album, was an interesting choice for Grammy opener. Yet letting two marrieds sing all about how much they love loving (and rubbing) on each other is just further proof that there is no denying Queen B.

What do you do when you’ve been arrested for driving under the influence and drag racing in a major American city? Well, if you’re 19-year-old Justin Bieber, you compare yourself to Michael Jackson.

Grammy Busts: The Least Successful Best New Artist Winners

View Photo Gallery

Winners of the Grammy Award for Best New Artist include Mariah Carey, You Oughta Know alum Adele, Lauryn Hill and The Beatles. What should be considered the highest order of tapping a kid on the shoulder and telling him or her they’ve “got potential” has maintained enough credibility over the years to remain relevant. But that doesn’t mean there haven’t been a few missteps. Grammy got it right with that English foursome who would later create Abbey Road and become the most recognized act around the world, but then there’s the German duo who weren’t actually singing on their debut album. Not to mention the flower child responsible for the Dawson’s Creek theme song and that old dude who can’t stop crooning about sailing.
