From Adele‘s return to Lady Gaga‘s heartfelt tribute to David Bowie to performances by Taylor SwiftJustin Bieber and more the 2016 Grammy Awards was filled with big moments. Unfortunately, Rihanna’s first performance of Anti‘s “Kiss It Better” was not to be part of the night — the singer pulled out at the last minute, reportedly due to illness. But there were plenty of stunning stage moments to talk about — not least, Demi Lovato‘s “Hello” delivery in the tribute to Lionel Richie.

And while we’ll likely be talking about some of these epic performances for the next week, we should also bring our attention to those lucky ones who walked away from the stage with a golden gramophone.
