5 p.m.: And we are off! Starting things out with a sultry, seated Beyoncé giving us a rendition of "Drunk in Love" in a revealing bodysuit. Nice gams!
5:05: Oh, and look who joined Bey... we'll give you a hint: Power couple.
5:10: Host LL Cool J gives a little shout-out to Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, Keith Urban, Robin Thicke, Kendrick Lamar, Pink, the Beatles... phew!
5:11: Anna Kendrick and Pharrell Williams present first award — Best New Artist. We're still digesting Williams's Mountie hat.
5:15: And the Best New Artist Grammy goes to... Macklemore & Ryan Lewis! "Before there was any buzz about us...there was our fans and it spread organically. ... We made this album without a record label ... and we appreciate all the support."
5:16: Record and Song of the Year nominee Lorde takes the stage to perform her hit "Royals."
5:25: The phenomenally talented Hunter Hayes performs, debuting his new song, "Invisible." He's backed by powerful quotes from John Lennon, Lady Gaga ... the song is about bullying, very powerful.
5:30: Best Pop Duo/Group Performance winner is announced...wait for it... wait for it... It's Daft Punk, "Get Lucky!"
5:31: First we had the guy from Slipknot in a clown mask, now Daft Punk in their robotic helmets. "On behalf of the robots," Pharrell Williams gives the thank-you speech.
5:35: Katy Perry performs a witchy "Dark Horse," starting out from inside a crystal ball-like orb and finishing up with a red-eyed animatronic horse and a ominous stormy backdrop.
