Before we start, we have to talk about Kelly Rowland’s dress.
OK, so, the show started up with Taylor Swift’s weird Tim Burton performance and Harry Styles diss.
Elton John sang!
With Ed Sheeran! Which was actually totally great.
J.Lo showed some serious leg.
And everyone was kind of like…
Fun. sprung a leak.
And their guitarist was all…
Mumford and Sons performed and sounded great.
And then a bunch of boring stuff happened until THE GREATEST THING EVER HAPPENED…
Which was when Beyoncé and Ellen DeGeneres introduced Justin Timberlake.
And Jay-Z showed up!
And then Chris Brown sat during a standing ovation for Frank Ocean…
…because of course he did.
And then Taylor Swift danced a bunch.
Like a ton.
Like she literally wouldn’t stop dancing.
Alright, T-Swift, c’mon.
Queen B was rocking it from the crowd, though.
Prince was a total badass.
John Mayer and Katy Perry’s boobs danced together.
Carrie Underwood had a magic dress.
Frank Ocean KILLED it during his performance of “Forrest Gump.”
And his mom (and Tyler, the Creator) were like…
And then the night ended with a tribute to Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys.
Also, I almost forgot: Ryan Seacrest hit Taylor Swift in the head on the red carpet.
