Swift thanked "all the girls I talk to on the Internet and we talk about your feelings and you teach me your teen slang," during her speech for top female artist, and told her fans that she was "obsessed" with them: "You guys are the reason this year has happened the way that it's happened," she said. It was also a good year for Iggy Azalea, Pharrell Williams and Sam Smith, who each won three awards, while One Direction, Hozier, Jason Aldean, Enrique Iglesias and John Legend, took home two.

Though the Grammys ceremony featured a reunion performance by surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, one of the most dramatic moments of the night was the mass live wedding during Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's performance. Thirty-three couples were married live on stage during a performance of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's single about equality, "Same Love."
