We know what you're thinking, an award's ceremony without Jennifer Lawrence just isn't worth bothering about, but last night's 56th annual Grammy Awards still provided plenty of entertainment despite the absence of the world's most GIFable woman. It was a family affair as Katy Perry rocked up to the event with her brother David Hudson in tow while Madonna walked the red carpet with her son David Banda. Madge and David wore Ralph Lauren suits and the pop superstar shared a photo of their matchy matchy looks on Instagram with the caption, "Pimpin the red carpet with Banda! #PerfectDate #revolutionoflove".
Taylor Swift continued her girly bonding campaign with New Zealand born singer Lorde, Tweeting a pic of herself with her pal alongside this message of solidarity: "And you know... We're on each other's team. #LORDE #CLEANINGUP #GRAMMYs". Both singers performed with 17-year-old Lorde picking up two awards for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for her hit track 'Royals'. Taylor meanwhile lost out in the Album of the Year category, but provided us all with a giggle when she turned to her friend Ed Sheeran and mouthed, "I told you so". Luckily her triumphant know-it-all moment was captured in a GIF:
Rita Ora put rumours to rest of a split with Calvin Harris by posing for an Instagram snap with her Brit musician beau. She channelled Marilyn Monroe in a Lanvin dress and platinum curls. But the Hottest Couple of the Night award has to go to Beyonce and Jay Z who opened the show with a rendition of their super sexy duet 'Drunk In Love'. Queen Bey posted steamy images from their sizzling performance on Tumblr, which showcase her cropped hairstyle.
