Woah, we didn’t realise there were so many awards in one night!

There were many moments throughout the night that took social media by storm and owned online conversation. Adele had the fourth most talked-about moment of the evening with her orchestral tribute to George Michael. She stopped her performance in the middle of the first chorus to “Fastlove”. She then nailed it the second time round which earned her a lot of love for her tenacity.

Another talked about moment during the Grammy’s was Lady Gaga and Metallica’s “Moth Into Flame” performance which also lit up social media. This performance came in as the second hottest topic on Facebook.

Beyonce’s baby bump had viewers buzzing on the night as it was her first public appearance since announcing that she was pregnant with twins. This topic came in at number 4 on the Facebook list whilst Bruno Mars and his rendition of 24k Magic cut “That’s What I Like” completed the top 5.
