We've brought you the full list of winners at the 2014 Grammys here and now it's time for our rundown of the brilliant performances at the ceremony...

1) Beyonce (Featuring Jay-Z)

SURFBOARD! SURFBOARD! Yes Twitter was hashtagging like crazy last night as Bey performed a Cabaret style performance of ‘Drunk In Love’ . Jay-Z turning up midway through dressed in a tux and despite the fact we flinched a bit during the ‘eat the cake’ line it was still #cute.

2) Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers, Pharrell & Stevie Wonder (Phew)!

As if it wasn’t perfect enough to have the dream team line up of Daft Punk/Nile/Pharrell performing ‘Get Lucky’, the French duo only drafted in Stevie bloody Wonder for the second verse and then dip into a Chic/Daft Punk mash up.

3) Taylor Swift

Despite the fact it lacked a cut away to Jake Gyllenhaal’s embarrassed face, we were happily surprised by Taylor Swift’s twinkly performance of ‘All Too Well’. Sob, sob and indeed sob.

4) Madonna

Madonna performance bombed the Macklemore/Miranda Lambert performance dressed as some sort of angelic cowboy to do a version of 'Open Your Heart' just before Queen Latifah married 33 same sex couples.

5) Lorde

In what can only be described as ‘a bit like a scene from Twilight’ Lorde performed 2013’s anthem for disaffected youth ‘Royals’, against a backdrop of twinkly lights and mood lighting. #seriousartist.
