The Grammy Awards were last night and while "awards" are a very loose way to categorize this show, Daft Punk, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and Lorde all came away with trophies.
But, really, who cares about the awards here? Pharrell wore a hat and a bunch of people got married during a performance of Macklemore's "Same Love" alongside Madonna. The night's other battle is the most significant: which famous audience member can look like he/she is having the most fun?
This, of course, is Taylor Swift's game—the camera cut away to her dancing during the first performance of the night, Beyoncé and Jay-Z's sexy rendition of "Drunk in Love"—but she had tough competition from a surprising place: Yoko Ono was grooving the whole night long. Let's begin with a hair-flip from Swift during her performance of her song "All Too Well."
Note how during the performance from Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons, Swift and her companion are the only people standing in their section. They are having more fun than you are.
But the more historically significant audience dancing came from Yoko Ono, who was having a good time during Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr's performance of his new song, "Queenie Eye." We guess Paul and Yoko have truly buried any sort of hatchet!
There was a lot of respectful head bobbing during the country tribute. This is what it looks like when Beyoncé listens to "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys."
Yes, Bey and Jay are a late entry, but they certainly want to give Taylor and Yoko a run for their money. Just look at Beyoncé's moves during the Daft Punk/Stevie Wonder performance.
Of course, it is sort of hard not to dance to this song. Yoko threw out a peace sign.
And Steven Tyler did this.
Judge for yourself who had the most fun, but we're giving it to Yoko, by a hair. Taylor's reaction to not winning Album of the Year—the prize went to Daft Punk's Random Access Memories instead of her Red—means she obviously didn't have the best time. In this brief moment, the "Ra—" in "Random Access Memories" sounded a lot like "Red." Watch Taylor's Surprise Face die on the vine.
