Peter Blackstock and I tag-teamed Grammy tweets yesterday. Here’s a broad overview of a ceremony that started slow but went on to feature well-deserved awards, disturbing, yet predictable upsets and a few incredibly impressive performances.

In the early part of the night, folks were not impressed with the Grammy’s decision to pair Stevie Wonder and Pentatonix.

It's actually offensive that Stevie Wonder is being forced to stand with Pentatonix, the devil's A cappella group. #GRAMMYs

In one of the first upsets (or predictable safe choices, depending on how you look at it) Ed Sheeran took home his first Grammy for Song of the Year for “Thinking Out Loud.”

.@Blackstock360 called it. #GRAMMYs glossed over Lamar's phenomenal anthem for the white people wedding song that will haunt us for eternity

His BFF Taylor Swift was appropriately psyched (or fake psyched, as the case may be.)

Technical difficulties made Adele’s highly anticipated performance difficult to watch. After the performance she explained the problems came when the piano mics fell on the piano strings causing the sound of a guitar and making her sound out of tune.

Left shark did the sound mix on that Adele song.

Because of it though… I'm treating myself to an in n out. So maybe it was worth it.

The first early hit was the cast from “Hamilton.” In a first for the ceremony, they performed the intro to the award-winning musical live from Broadway and it was incredible.

.@Lin_Manuel and #Hamilton just got the biggest cheer of the night #GRAMMYs

— D. Sengupta Stith (@deborific) February 16, 2016

Kendrick Lamar’s stunning performance was easily the most talked about of the night.

For all that posturing and noise Kanye makes, THAT what Kendrick just did is how you make your statements. #TheGrammys

— JohnGotty (@JohnGotty) February 16, 2016

Trying to convince then to change the name from The Grammys to The Kendricks. I'll keep you posted

— Nathan Slavik (@refinedhype) February 16, 2016

And even though he didn’t win the big awards many folks thought he deserved, his wins still mattered.

I hear lots of young MCs saying they don't care about the Grammys. But you can't tell me seeing Kendrick win on his terms won't change that.

— Bun B (@BunBTrillOG) February 16, 2016

And his performance drew praise from all corners of the internet.

Shoutout to @KendrickLamar and all the artists at the #Grammys working to build a brighter future. #MyBrothersKeeperhttps://t.co/XM0KwV3jNB

— The White House (@WhiteHouse) February 16, 2016

@kendricklamar THAT WAS SO POWERFUL.

Lady Gaga as David Bowie drew a mixed reaction from the internet.

Fresh off reminding us she’s actually phenomenally talented at the Super Bowl, Gaga was perfect for the Bowie tribute. #GRAMMYs

— D. Sengupta Stith (@deborific) February 16, 2016

I love this. Can Lady Gaga do a full tour as Bowie?

— Kam Franklin (@KamFranklin) February 16, 2016

re : Gaga-as-Bowie. Was Martin Short totally unavailable?

— CSTB (@cstbtweet) February 16, 2016

This is the most valid criticism.

This David Bowie tribute would have been so much better if Lady Gaga just sang one amazing song instead of racing through 1,048. #Grammys

— Aidin Vaziri (@MusicSF) February 16, 2016

Alabama Shakes owned the massive stage they rightfully deserve.

.@Alabama_Shakes are pushing the boundaries on rock in such exciting ways right now. I LOVE that they're on this stage right now #GRAMMYs

— D. Sengupta Stith (@deborific) February 16, 2016

The debut of the Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper vehicle Hollywood Vampires in a tribute to Lemmy Kilmister was uneven, and could have used a bit more pirate.

Kind of want Johnny Depp's shirt to be more piratey. #GRAMMYs

— D. Sengupta Stith (@deborific) February 16, 2016

Can't believe Johnny Depp is in a band and it's not called Shredward Scissorhands.

— Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) February 16, 2016

But we’d be totally down for this.

I kinda want Hollywood Vampires for @funfunfunfest black stage 2016 just so I can see this up close.

— Jennifer Sinski (@jennifersinski) February 16, 2016

The tribute to B.B. King with Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr. and Bonnie Raitt was inspired. The thrill was not gone.

This is how you do a tribute! Focus! Thoughtful song selection! Artistry to honor the honoree!

— roxane gay (@rgay) February 16, 2016

At the risk of sounding like an old, I would love for Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr & Bonnie Raitt to make a record together. #GRAMMYs

— ʅʕ•ᴥ•ʔʃ AustinBloggy (@AustinBloggy) February 16, 2016

And the evening’s fabulous female guitarists had fans in high places.

my gurls Bonnie & Brittany were holding it DOWN at the #GRAMMYs tonight–you go with your bad selves! :)@TheBonnieRaitt@Alabama_Shakes

— Mavis Staples (@mavisstaples) February 16, 2016

Of course, we were happy for the hometown hero.

Gary Clark Jr. is doing Austin so proud right now! #GRAMMYs

— Maribel Molina (@marimolina385) February 16, 2016

It was Clark’s birthday and we’re happy to hear it was a great one all around.

Got to spend my birthday at the #Grammys then the @wbr after party. @MissyElliott came out and rocked it. I should call it a night but no…

— Gary Clark Jr (@GaryClarkJr) February 16, 2016

The hardest moment of the night for many, including yours truly, was Swift besting Lamar for Album of the Year.

The air leaving the room after we were all built up for the Earth, Wind and Fire hand off to @kendricklamar#GRAMMYs

— D. Sengupta Stith (@deborific) February 16, 2016

Oh, Grammys. Tonite I am Kanye. #grammys

— BUST Magazine (@bust_magazine) February 16, 2016

But Taylor Swift, unfazed went all in on her biggest detractor.

Oh yeah, and Beyonce came out at the end to award Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson Record of the Year, but she didn’t perform.

You have access to Beyoncé and you make her a presenter?!? #GRAMMYspic.twitter.com/okEC7dTwv9

— ʅʕ•ᴥ•ʔʃ AustinBloggy (@AustinBloggy) February 16, 2016

Bringing @Beyoncé to the #GRAMMYs and not having her sing is kind of like having a gun in a stage play that never gets shot.

— D. Sengupta Stith (@deborific) February 16, 2016

And we’re not talking about Pitbull.
