More surprising was six-time nominee Frank Ocean not winning any of the big awards he was up for.
Ocean scored best urban contemporary album and shared best rap collaboration with Kanye West and Jay-Z for "No Church in the Wild," but lost best new artist to Fun. and album of the year to Mumford & Sons.
It was also more fun checking to see which artists ignored the reported Grammys memo asking them to cover up (we are looking at you and your rather exposed bosom Katy Perry). Jennifer Lopez even joked about it while presenting.
"As you can see I read the memo," Lopez said, wearing a black dress cut extremely high and fully exposing one leg.
