The Grammys 2014

It was all fun and games at the very eventful 56th Annual Grammys held last Sunday the 26th January. With a Beatles reunion, a mass wedding ceremony, a rare Beyonce & Jay-Z performance and Pharrell Williams’ hat, it was almost too much to take at once!

The main winners of the night were Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Lorde going away with multiple awards.

The highlights of the night were Beyonce and Jay-Z performing their seductive single ‘Drunk in Love’ and a mass wedding involving 33 couples. An unusual event with Queen Latifah officiating the ceremony and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis providing the soundtrack to the event with ‘Same Love’ alongside Madonna singing ‘Open Your Heart’.

The best of the red carpet…
