Oh, the Grammys. Every year, the awards show serves up mouthwatering slices of goodness, and the 2015 ceremony was no different. From Sam Smith‘s statement of self-empowerment and Pharrell‘s miserable version of “Happy” to Kanye being Kanye, Annie Lennox being Annie Lennox and a wiggy cameo near the end, here are your Coles Notes to music’s biggest night.

The 2015 Grammys officially went down in history as the only time LL Cool J and Ryan Seacrest could ever pass for twins.

Madonna mooned photographers on the red carpet…

…but only after a peasant handler dared try to handle her.

Pop quiz! Who had it worse: the people stuck sitting behind Daft Punk or Sia and Maddie Ziegler?

Why so mad, Nicki Minaj?

Rihanna finally listened to everyone who ever told her to cover up.

AC/DC opened the show, rocked the house and left every teenager wondering who they are.

Taylor Swift‘s words of advice to the losers of the night doubled as self-promotion.

Sam Smith was generally awesome and inspiring during his second acceptance speech.

Kanye gave Ed Sheeran a standing ovation; Kim, not so much.

Pharrell demonstrated that he has amazing self-control.

Beyoncé and Jay Z continued to win at life.

Annie Lennox was and is everything. That is all.

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga were like peanut butter and jam: They just work.

Paul McCartney was totally singing along with ELO…until he noticed the camera on him. Aww.

Domestic-abuse victim Brooke Axtell‘s words were so powerful…

…which was kind of awkward since a lot of the nominees are guilty of it.

BTW, Rihanna looked fierce during her performance, didn’t she?

Kanye almost Kanye’d Beck.

And Jay and Bey’s reactions were priceless.

We got goosebumps at the end, thanks to Queen Bey, Common and John Legend, but Kristen Wig Wiig won the Grammys.
