The 59th Annual Grammy Awards were presented on Sunday evening from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The big winner of the night was Adele who won five Grammys including Album, Record, and Song of the Year for 25 and 'Hello.' Chance the Rapper, whose album Coloring Book was self-published, won Best New Artist, Rap Performance, and Rap Album. The late David Bowie also won five Grammys including Rock Song, Rock Performance, and Alternative Music Album for Blackstar. Beyonce didn't get totally shut out. Her album, Lemonade, won Best Contemporary Urban Album. You can see the list of all the winners below. For all the nominees go to:

The Grammy's are all about the performances and once in a lifetime collaborations between artists. This year's show did not disappoint. Despite the politically charged social climate, and especially during Hollywood award season, most performers/presenters/award winners actually kept to the music. Here's a quick run down of what happened, what they sang, and anything interesting of note:

59th Grammy Award Show 2/12/17

  • Adele cold started the show by performing "Hello"

  • The show was hosted by James Corden of Late Night. He began by pretending to botch the opening music and dance number.

  • The Weeknd performed "I Feel It Coming" with Daft Punk (introduced by Paris Jackson)

  • Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood performed "The Fighter." (introduced by John Travolta)

  • Twenty-one Pilots won Pop/Duo Group Performace for "Stressed Out" and accepted the award in their underwear.

  • Ed Sheeran played "Shape of You" solo with looper pedals (introduced by James Corden)

  • Lukas Graham and Kelsea Ballerini sung a mashup "7 Years" and "Peter Pan." (introduced by Ryan Seacrest)

  • Beyonce was introduced by her mother Tina Knowles. She performed "Love Drought" and "Sandcastles" in a 9 minute performance. There were themes of motherhood, the Last Supper, and Mary.

  • James Corden was joined by Jennifer Lopez, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, John Legend, Blue Ivy, Neil Diamond and others to sing "Sweet Caroline" in a cardboard 'Car Pool Karaoke.'

  • Bruno Mars performed "That's What I Like"

  • Katy Perry performed "Chained to the Rhythm." She wore a white pantsuit with a 'Persist' armband and circled a picket fenced house. It ended with a projection of the Constitution.

  • William Bell and Gary Clark Jr. performed "Born Under a Bad Sign"

  • Maren Morris and Alicia Keys performed "Once"

  • Adele performed George Michaels' "Fastlove." She had to stop the performance and start over to get it right. She said, "I can't mess this up for him."

  • Metallica and Lady Gaga performed "Month Into The Flame." This performance also had problems as James Hatfield's mic wasn't working through the first verse. (introduced by Laverne Cox)

  • Sturgill Simpson and the Dap Kings performed "All Around You." A tribute to Sharon Jones who passed last year.

  • Demi Levato led the Bee Gees tribute. She started it with "Stayin' Alive." Tori Kelly then played "Tragedy." Lovato then came back for some more "Stayin' Alive," before Little Big Town sung "How Big is Your Love." Andra Day added in a soulful "Night Fever." Everyone came on stage to finish the medley with "Stayin' Alive."

  • A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak, Consequence, and Busta Rhytmas perform the political protest song "We The People." (introduced by Solange)

  • Morris Day and The Time started the Prince tribute with "Jungle Love" and "The Bird" from the Purple Rain soundtrack. Bruno Mars, channeling Prince, played "Let's Go Crazy" (introduced by James Corden)

  • Petatonix sung "ABC"

  • Chance the Rapper performed "How Great" with Kirk Franklin and Tamela Mann along with a gospel choir. (introduced by Halsey and Jason Derulo)

  • Cynthia Erivo and John Legend performed "God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys for the In Memorium segmen
