Hey M Girls,

Last night was the biggest night in music -- the 2013 Grammy Awards! Between amazing performances, gorgeous outfits and even some drama, it was a night we won't soon forget. So many of our fave stars were nominated for awards and singers like Taylor Swift, Adele and Kelly Clarkson all snagged some big wins! (Scroll down for a list of winners!)

But, let's get to the best part -- the performances! Yep, the Grammys were like a major concert experience and we loved every second. Check out our video highlights below:

Taylor Swift opened the night with her nominated tune, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"! And even though her performance was totally inspired by Alice In Wonderland, that's not what peeps were talking about. You see, in the middle of her tune when Tay has a pretend convo with her ex, she used a British accent -- which many people took as a diss to her most recent ex-BF, Harry Styles. Ouch! Watch for yourself here:

Next up, Ed Sheeran hit the stage with the legendary Elton John to sing his hit, "The A Team" -- and it gave us serious chills! What a performance!

Another big moment at the Grammys was Justin Timberlake's big return to the stage! He performed his new single, "Suit & Tie" and a brand new tune "Mirrors" -- one thing is clear...JT is back!

Rihanna (who looked STUNNING with new, long locks!) slowed things down with her ballad "Stay":

American Idol darling Kelly Clarkson totally showed off her impressive vocals in classic tunes "Tennessee Waltz" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman"

Hunter Hayes opened for tour mate Carrie Underwood with a sample from his song, "Wanted"! Then, Carrie hit the stage and blew everyone away with her songs "Blown Away" and "Two Black Cadillacs"! But, the biggest part of Carrie's performance? Her light show gown! Check it out:

Overall, it was a fantastic night that we're sure to be talking about for months! Stay tuned to mmm-mag.com for more Grammy coverage all day long, including our fashion blog and polls!
