This year’s GRAMMY Awards showcased several incredible performances from many of today’s biggest artists, including some very special collaborations from artists like Imagine Dragons andKendrick Lamar, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Miranda Lambert, Metallica and Chinese pianist Lang Lang, plus the Nine Inch Nails/Queens Of The Stone Age/Dave Grohl/Lindsey Buckingham performance that we were all waiting for.

The big winners of the night were Daft Punk, Lorde, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. We’re not quite sure how Led Zeppelin beat out Queens Of The Stone Age or Kings Of Leon for Best Rock Album, but we’re definitely stoked that the Nirvana (Dave, Krist and Pat) and Paul McCartney took home the Best Rock Song for “Cut Me Some Slack.” Vampire Weekend also won the Best Alternative Music Album over bands like Nine Inch Nails, Tame Impala and The National.
