SO 'IN LOVE'

There is plenty to smile about for performers (and winners!) Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, who cuddle up with their significant others, Tricia Davis (Macklemore’s fiancée) and Jackie Ganger (Lewis’s girlfriend).
THIS LITTLE LIGHT
Don’t worry – this wasn’t red carpet look! The double nominee happily switches things up for her supernatural-esque performance of “Dark Horse,” but it was another singer’s onstage garb she was eyeing. “I’m so happy @KaceyMusgraves is going on tour with me. I want a pair of my own light up boots!” she Tweeted.
Is anyone as happy to win as Dave Grohl? The rocker, along with Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, the Foo Fighters’ Pat Smear and Paul McCartney, beams after winning best rock song for “Cut Me Some Slack.”
RIGHT ON POINT
There you are! McCartney, who took home four Grammys and reunited with former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr on stage, greets Yoko Ono (wife of late Beatle John Lennon) before taking a front-row seat to the action.
BACK TO BLACK
“I seriously cannot wait to introduce INVISIBLE on @TheGRAMMYs. So beyond excited,” country cutie Hunter Hayes Tweeted before hitting the stage.
SHOCK & AWE

Thomas Bangalter of the band Daft Punk (who swept the Grammys with five wins) gives a huge hug to collaborator Pharrell Williams (who took home four awards) after one of their victories. “On the behalf of the robots, I’d just like to say, man, thank you,” Williams said, accepting the award with his famously silent (and in this case, helmet-covered) collaborators.
Could this be an epic collaboration in the making? Lorde (who took home two awards) makes a new friend in fellow Grammy performer .
HAND IN HAND
“You’re amazing!” “No, you’re amazing!” That’s the conversation we imagine between Grammy host LL Cool J and , who officiated weddings for 33 couples, both gay and straight, during the show.
Double nominee and performer Sara Bareilles shares a close moment with big winner Pharrell backstage at the show. “What a night!! I’m so honored to have been here. Kick ass comrades taking home the trophies, but I’m all smiles and off to my whiskey!” she Tweeted.
