Last night’s 55th annual Grammys was filled with tons of surprises and solid performances! The biggest winners of the night included the usual faces like the Black Keys (with four Grammys including “Best Rock Album” and Mumford & Sons (winning the major “Album of the Year”). The two underdogs of the night were fun. for “Best New Artist” and  Frank Ocean – who now has two brand new Grammys under his belt for “Best Urban Contemporary Album” for Channel Orange and “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration” for The Throne’s “No Church in the Wild”.

But the night truly belonged to Justin Timberlake and his spectacular comeback performance of a retrofied “Suit & Tie” with Jay-Z, along with his new track “Pusher Lover Girl”.

Another strong performance came from Rihanna and her stripped-down duet with Mikky Ekko for “Stay”. The songstress later joined Bruno Mars, Sting, Damian Marley and Ziggy Marley for a short-lived tribute to the reggae legend Bob Marley. Mars began the anticipated tribute with his own song “Locked Out of Heaven”, following Sting’s rendition of his class “Walking on the Moon”. The tribute ended with all five performers taking turns singing Marley’s “Could You Be Loved”.
