Last Sunday, January 26th, was a big night for recording artists: the Grammy Awards. Originally named the “Gramophone Awards,” the Grammys recognize outstanding musicians and features a variety of performances by the most prominent names in the industry.
The 2014 Grammys were no different. Performances by Beyonce and husband Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Daft Punk, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Pink, and more rocked the house. Big winners for the night included Daft Punk, Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Bruno Mars, and Justin Timberlake.
