The Grammys are called music's biggest night for a reason.
With performances from Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jack White, Frank Ocean, Miranda Lambert and more, the audience rocked their way through the 3.5 hour broadcast.
But no one was having more fun than Swift, 23, who was seen singing along and dancing to almost every song played throughout the night. But the singer-songwriter had plenty of reason to celebrate – earlier that day, she learned she won a Grammy for her song with The Civil Wars, "Safe & Sound," which appeared on The Hunger Games soundtrack.

Even though she was nominated for best pop vocal album, Pink was absent from the awards show on Sunday.
Instead, the 33-year-old singer spent the evening on Twitter, sharing her musings about the broadcast – and her busy day.
"I'm sorry honey @hartluck but every time Johnny Depp speaks with that low voice, I can't find my clothes. Oops there they are. #brrrrr," she Tweeted to her husband Carey Hart when the actor introduced Mumford & Sons.

Kelly Clarkson took home best pop vocal album – and possibly best acceptance speech of the night at Sunday's Grammy Awards.
Clarkson, 30, made her way to the stage, explaining why it took her so long to get up there.
"So sorry, I got stuck to Miranda Lambert ... there's a story and a song, for later ... after alcohol, I'm just kidding, children," she said with a laugh.
Despite admitting, "I get nervous speaking in front of people," Clarkson was charming at the podium, holding her Grammy for Stronger.

If Jennifer Lopez passes the Grammy Awards dress code this year, it will be on a technicality.
The pop star showed plenty of leg (even more than Angelina Jolie at last year's Oscars!) in her black Anthony Vaccarello dress. And she told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet that she felt she was in the clear, at least when it comes to particular body parts.
"They didn't say anything about legs!" said Lopez, 43. "I thought I was being such a good girl."
And later, during the telecast while presenting best pop solo performance to Adele with rapper Pitbull, Lopez joked, "So, as you can see, I read the memo."

A dress code at the Grammy Awards seems as likely to be enforced as a profanity ban for Quentin Tarantino movies. Still, the stars were ordered to cover up this year.
So, did they?
Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Rowland may have crossed a line with their outfits – Lopez in an Anthony Vaccarello dress with a high thigh slit, and Rowland in a Georges Chakra outfit that showed lots of skin.

It was four years ago that Rihanna and Chris Brown failed to show up at the 2009 Grammy Awards after a notorious battery incident that earned Brown a conviction for felony assault.
The couple's relationship came full circle, in a way, on Sunday night: Despite arriving separately, the newly reconciled pair sat together to enjoy the 2013 Grammys.
Rihanna, 24, in a red Alia gown, and Brown, 23, in all-white suit, were spotted looking cozy in the audience. TV cameras spotted Brown's arm around Rihanna, and he was holding her hand.

Fans weren't the only ones who gushed over the Destiny's Child reunion during the Super Bowl. Even Kelly Rowland was overwhelmed.
The singer told Giuliana Rancic during E!'s Live From the Red Carpet: The 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday that she got emotional during the performance.
"When I looked on the other side of the stage at Super Bowl and I saw Beyoncé and Michelle [Williams], my heart just went into my throat, I was so happy," she said. "It was just such a beautiful moment."

While the northeast braved a midwinter blizzard, the West Coast was feeling the heat – and we're not just talking about the comparatively warmer weather.
With the Grammy Awards on the horizon, the most famous faces of the industry were in their finest form Saturday to celebrate music's biggest night.
John Mayer and Katy Perry took their date night up a notch at Clive Davis and The Recording Academy's Annual Pre-Grammy Gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel, where they were spotted holding hands while Patti Smith performed. The couple was color-coordinated: he was in a white dinner jacket and black bow tie, and she wore a white designer dress.

Grammy weekend got off on a bumpy start for Chris Brown.
The best urban contemporary album nominee walked away uninjured after crashing his black Porsche into a wall during a paparazzi chase.
Beverly Hills police tell PEOPLE the accident occurred Saturday around noon when Brown, 23, lost control of his vehicle while driving to an L.A. charity event.
After Brown was reportedly cut off by photographers, "the occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle," Brown's rep said in a statement, via Entertainment Weekly. "In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he began to back down an alley, at which point he was cut off by two additional vehicles."

It may have been a tribute to Bruce Springsteen but Katy Perry seemed to be the main attraction for some at Friday's MusiCares Person of the Year tribute at the Los Angeles Convention Center before Sunday's Grammy Awards.
The singer, who arrived at the charity event which raises money for musicians in need sans beau John Mayer, was interrupted by two young fans who asked to take a picture with her as she was talking to director J.J. Abrams. But that wasn't all: the pop star, who later hung out with Elton John, was approached by even more fans in the lobby at the show.
