0126_grammy2_launch
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards
were three and a half hours of performances, speeches and Taylor Swift dancing in the aisles.

But, if you missed the loongggggggg show, we've got the can't-miss moments that everyone will be talking about.

Check out the videos and photos below for the show highlights -- what was your favorite moment?

1.) Beyonce & Jay Z's Sizzling Opening Number



These two set the bar high, performing a sultry duet of of "Drunk In Love." From Beyonce's revealing costume to their killer chemistry together, this was a hot one. Surfboard!

2.) Katy Perry's Spinal Tap Moment

"Spinal Tap" started trending during Katy's bewitching performance of "Dark Horse," thanks to her starting the song from inside a giant orb. Luckily, she didn't get trapped in it like her film predecessors. 

3.) Keith Urban's Hair

The "American Idol" judge and country superstar had everyone buzzing over his recently-shorn locks. His new 'do quickly drew comparisons to KD Lang, Kate Gosselin and Jennifer Lawrence.

What do you think of his shorter style? 

4.) Taylor Swift, Headbanger



Like Keith, Taylor's hair had everyone talking, thanks to her intense headbanging session in the middle of her "All Too Well" performance.

This girl can rock out to anything!

5.) "Maleficent" Looks AWESOME



This moment didn't actually happen during the show, but Disney aired a new trailer for "Maleficent" during one of the commercial breaks. Angelina Jolie is KILLING it as the title sorceress -- and Lana Del Rey's just-released cover of "Once Upon a Dream" is hauntingly perfect.

May 30th can't come fast enough!

6.) Pharrell's Hat

We think Arby's summed it up best:

7.) "Radioactive" Rocks



It wasn't just Taylor Swift rocking out to Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar's performance of "Radioactive," but the entire audience.

Jay Z, Steven Tyler, Katy Perry and probably everyone at home were all seen getting out of their seats to dance with the hard-octane performance.

8.) The Beatles Reunite

Well, the living ones at least. Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney performed together ... and your parents probably loved it.

One complaint though: Why didn't they actually sing any Beatles music?!?

9.) We All "Get Lucky" With an Epic Performance

Pharell + Daft Punk + Stevie Wonder + The Most Infectious Song of 2013 = The Best Performance of the Night.

Everyone in the audience looked like they were having a great time watching these guys do their thing for "Get Lucky"-- and we LOVED watching it from home. This was a performance that'll be remembered for years to come.

10.) Best Wedding Ever

Imagine you got married on live television ... in a ceremony officiated by a Queen ... with performances from Macklemore and Madonna. Yep, pretty awesome, right?

33 couples, gay and straight, tied the knot near the end of the show. Everyone was crying, including Keith Urban. Awwwwww.



11.) Trent Reznor Is Ticked!

The show closed with a performance from Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl, Lindsay Buckingham and Queens of the Stone Age -- but it was cut off by producers for the closing credits. 

"Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt F**K YOU guys," the Nine Inch Nails frontman tweeted out after the show. Way to end the ceremony on a high note!

12.) Macklemore Doesn't Get Why He Won Either

Even Macklemore thinks Kendrick Lamar was robbed when it came to Best Rap Album last night.

While the "Thrift Shop" singer picked up 4 trophies on Sunday, Lamar went home empty handed -- and the Internet backlash against Macklemore was pretty intense. 

The "Same Love" star sent Kendrick a text after the show and then posted it on Instagram (above), expressing his own shock that Lamar didn't win.
