The 55th Grammys: Recap

Last night marked the 55th Grammys Award Show – the biggest day of the year for music. And the biggest day it was! With performances from Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Miranda Lambert (and more), the show, aired on CBS, social media was going crazy – and we ended up seeing longer performances and a lot fewer awards presented/given out.

Although there are always performances we could do without, the Grammy’s do a fantastic job covering all genres to keep a happy audience. However, the biggest highlight of the night was probably Justin Timberlake’s comeback to the music scene (right after his performance he announced his album 20/20 will be dropping next month – March 19)!

If you missed the show, we have you covered. Keep reading for a list of winners. Note: This isn’t the full list – only overall winners and major genre winners (Pop, Rock, R&B, Rap, Country).
