Music’s biggest night (according to the Recording Academy, anyway) has officially come and gone. Michelle Obama brought the show to a halt. BTS swayed as Dolly and Miley sang “Jolene.” Cardi B introduced us to our new favorite pianist and made rap history. Brandi Carlile, Lady Gaga, and Kacey Musgraves were some of the night’s biggest winners, and no-show Ariana Grande also beat out Taylor Swift to pick up her first-ever Grammy.
