A Lizzo Photobomb Celeb Couple Moments Tears Everything You Didnt See at the 2020 Grammy Awards

And with that, the 2020 Grammy Awards have come to an end!

With the heartbreaking news that Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others had died in a plane crash coming just hours before the show kicked off, stars still found a way to celebrate music’s biggest night on Sunday at the Staples Center.

While many of the memorable moments were captured in front of the cameras — such as the emotional tributes to Bryant and Nipsey Hussle, Demi Lovato‘s triumphant return to the stage, and Billie Eilish dominating the evening — there were also several unseen happenings on the red carpet, during the show and inside the after-parties.

Here are the best behind-the-scenes moments you didn’t see.

On the Red Carpet

Lil Nas X was thrilled to be nominated at his first Grammy Awards and relished the moment besides a large entourage, including his brothers, whom he kept close and involved with all photos. Despite the excitement of the night, the “Old Town Road” artist seemed cool, calm and collected on the red carpet.

After snapping photos with his group, Lil Nas X, 20, found time to meet up with Cyndi Lauper. The duo introduced themselves, shaking each other’s hands and later ended their interaction with a hug.

Singers Rosalía and Billie Eilish also shared a sweet greeting on the carpet, embracing in a long hug and chatting for a bit before posing for a number of photos together.

Ty Dolla $ign made his public debut with his new girlfriend — the pair wore coordinating outfits as they walked the carpet together hand-in-hand.

Elsewhere at the event, Chris Brown showed up with his 5-year-old daughter, Royalty, as his plus one. The duo were captured smiling together inside the venue after finding their seats.

Inside the Show

During Keys’ opening tribute to Bryant, 41, cameras caught Bebe Rexha wiping tears from her face. Several other audience members also appeared to be visibly moved by Keys’ heartfelt opening speech.

The Staples Center also honored Bryant by keeping his two retired Lakers jerseys that were hanging from the ceiling illuminated for the duration of the show — an unprecedented move for the venue,

Billie Eilish Wins Album of the Year at Grammys 2020 Can I Just Say Ariana Deserves This

Billie Eilish Wins Album of the Year at Grammys 2020 Can I Just Say Ariana Deserves This

Another one!

Billie Eilish just took home the coveted album of the year award at the 2020 Grammys for her debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? The album went two times platinum and peaked at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

“Can I just say Ariana deserves this?” Eilish, 18, said as she accepted to the award. In response, Grande, who was nominated for her album Thank U, Next sweetly blew kisses from the audience.

“I’m not going to waste your time. Thank you for this,” Eilish said before her brother Finneas O’Connell took the mic.

“We didn’t make this album to win a grammy. We wrote an album about depression, suicidal thoughts and climate change. We stand up here confused,” O’Connell said.

The nod came just after Eilish won song of the year for viral single “Bad Guy.”

“Why? So many other songs deserved this, I’m sorry,” Eilish said alongside O’Connell, who co-wrote the track. “This is my first Grammys. I never thought this would ever happen in my whole life.”

Giving her mom and dad a sweet shout-out, Eilish also thanked her brother before expressing her appreciation for her fellow nominees.

“This is my brother Finneas and he’s my best friend,” she said. “I feel like I joke around a lot and I never take anything seriously at these kind of things but I genuinely want to say I am so grateful, and I only want to say that I’m grateful, and I am so honored to be here. All of you, I love you to my core. I grew up watching all of you.”

Eilish then turned the attention over to O’Connell, who admitted he was also at a loss for words.

“This is a really, really big deal and I have no idea what to say. I didn’t think we were gonna win this at all. I loved every song on this list. I want to thank my girlfriend, my best friends, our entire team,” he said. “We just make music in a bedroom together. We still do that. And they let us do that. This is to all the kids who are making music in their bedrooms today, you’re gonna get one of these.”

2020 Grammys In Memoriam Honors Late Stars — and Draws Criticism for Misspelling Ric Ocaseks Name

2020 Grammys In Memoriam Honors Late Stars — and Draws Criticism for Misspelling Ric Ocaseks Name

Beloved musicians who died over the past year were honored during the 2020 Grammy Awards — but an unfortunate spelling snafu stole attention from the tribute.

On Sunday, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue united for a touching tribute to artists such as Ric Ocasek, Peter Tork and Nipsey Hussle, who won two posthumous Grammys and was nominated for a third earlier in the night.

Photos of late stars include Doris Day, Diahann Carroll, Eddie Money and Rush drummer Neil Peart graced the screen alongside their names as a medley of various songs played.

Once all the photos were presented, Shorty and the band took the stage for an energetic performance.

Still, much of the attention from viewers was focused on an unfortunate spelling error, as Ocasek’s first name was misspelled as “Rick” during the segment.

“HOW Y’ALL GONNA MISSPELL RIC OCASEK’S NAME??! #GRAMMYs 😭,” one user wrote on Twitter.

Another wrote that the typo showed “such a lack of respect,” while others still called on the Grammys to hire a copy editor.

“Dear #Grammy: His name is RIC Ocasek, not RICK. How about hiring a copy editor?!
