2013 Grammy Awards: All The Winners And Highlights From Inside The Ceremony

11 February 2013 by

While half of Hollywood was dodging the snow in London at last night's BAFTAs, there was an equally star-studded ceremony going on in Los Angeles...the 2013 Grammy Awards. The ceremony - held at Hollywood's Staples Centre - always attracts the cream of the music industry and this year didn't disappoint, with Beyonce, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Adele and Taylor Swift all in attendance. Here's what went down...

1. Rihanna and Chris Brown's love in 

It's been four years since Rihanna and Chris Brown last attended the Grammys together - on the night that he was later arrested and charged for assaulting her. Rihanna spoke last week about her decision to take him back, saying it was "her mistake to make" - and last night she was happy for the world to see it, cuddling up to the rapper all evening.

2. Lena Dunham cuddling Taylor Swift

It started with a few tweets, and now Lena Dunham and Taylor Swift are developing into real life BFFs. They were spotted last night sharing a huge bear hug. Awww. Lena was there to support her boyfriend, Jack Antonoff from Fun - whose song, We Are Young, won song of the year. 

3. Katy Perry's cleavage

In a word, WOW. Before this year's ceremony, CBS television network issued a "wardrobe advisory" notice - warning attendees not to flash buttocks or breasts. There was always going to be someone who tried their luck...while Katy Perry didn't exactly break the rules, she sure got CBS executives hot under the collar with her plunging green gown. Even Elton John couldn't resist a gawp. Besides snuggling up to boyfriend John Meyer, Katy was also hanging out with BFF Alison Williams, aka Marnie from Girls.

4. ...and J-Lo's leg

It wasn't just Katy Perry trying her luck with the new dress codes. Clearly taking inspiration from Angelina Jolie's infamous thigh moment at last year's Oscars, J-Lo thought she's get in on the leg action and was seen thrusting her thigh out of her dress at every opportunity. We love you J-Lo, but put it [the leg] away. Please.

5. The new celebrity friendship group

Watch your back Gwynnie and Chris...Beyonce and Jay-Z have got a new couple to hang out with. Bey and Jay were seated alongside Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel for the ceremony, and seemed to be having a whale of a time. At one point Jay-Z was seen topping up a giggling Jessica's champagne. How do we get to be part of this gang?

6. Carey Mulligan supporting her man

They're such a private couple that we'd almost forgotten they were married...but Carey Mulligan donned her glad rags - a black jumpsuit - to support her husband, Marcus Mumford from Mumford and Sons. The band picked up two awards - Album of the Year and Best Long Form music video - and Carey couldn't have looked prouder.

7. Adele wins, of course.

Last year she picked up six Grammy awards. And despite being busy concentrating on being a new mum for most of the past year, she still managed to win again last night, scooping the award for Best Pop Solo Performance for Set Fire To The Rain. "I just wanted to be part of the night, because I loved it last year, obviously," she told the audience. "Thank you, I just wanted to say a massive, send big love to all the other girls, and all us females doing this because we work so hard and we make it look so easy."

8. Taylor Swift's fringe is back

After her break up from Harry Styles, Taylor went down the well-trodden route of changing her hair after a break up, sweeping her fringe back and rocking a more grown-up look. But last night, the bangs were back. Hurrah! She kicked off the ceremony with a performance of We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and was joined by performers on stilts, a White Rabbit and human puppets for the Alice in Wonderland-themed performance. 'I'm sorry, I'm busy opening the Grammys and we are never getting back together,' she quipped at the start. Hmmm, wonder who she was talking about...

9. Kelly Clarkson's photobomb
