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?

When news broke earlier today that 34 couples would be married during the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards, it almost immediately eclipsed the news that Queen Latifah (!) and Madonna (!!!) would also be joining the group to sing “Same Love.” That track, which features vocals from Mary Lambert, is one of the nominees for Song Of The Year, but whether or not it wins that award later on tonight, “Same Love” has certainly cemented its place in not just Grammy history, but the popular culture at large.

The Grammy Awards are the one night each year that music industry honors its very best talent and also showcases its very worst in fashion. In past years, outrageous fashions have run the gamut from Jennifer Lopez‘s infamous (and infinitely hot) Versace gown, to Nicki Minaj‘s dark red cardinal costume, and Lady Gaga‘s egg. And this year, stars like Cyndi Lauper and Skylar Grey are (unfortunately) continuing the not-so-proud tradition of worst dressed celebrity fashion at the Grammys.
Music videos in the ’80s and ’90s were full of struggling thespians grateful for a bit part and a day’s work. But now some of those actors and actresses are MAJOR A-list stars in the Hollywood galaxy. In many cases they’re role is the most famous part of the video! From Oscar winners like Angelina Jolie and Benicio Del Toro, to TV king (and queen) pins like Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul and Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, music vids gave these folks their first big exposure to a mass audience. They might be a little embarrassed of these first steps , but for the rest of us they’re like adorable naked baby photos (you know what we mean), and acts as a fascinating glimpse into their early days.

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards are coming at us Sunday night, and we really had no choice but to indulge in a bit of Grammy nostalgia. But when we started to take a look back, we realized we still had some raw emotions over some stars who’d been overlooked in past years. Which artists suffered some serious snubs back in the day?
How did One Direction‘s Liam Payne get himself caught up in the Duck Dynasty controversy last night? Did Madonna apologize for using the N word? Did Rixton enjoy dressing up like famous pop stars in their music video for “Make Out?”
