The show aired on CBS and was full of collaborative performances. It opened up with a performance by Beyonce and her husband Jay Z of her hit tune “Drunk in Love” the couple’s chemistry was on full display during the performance…a rarity for the very private duo. There was a great performance by Stevie Wonder, Niles Rogers, Pharrell Williams and Daft Punk performing the hit of the year “Get Lucky” as well as Wonder’s “For You” and Rogers “Freak Out” it was a perfect blend of beats and nostalgia.

Best New Artist went to another hot winner for the night and that was none other than Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
