The 2015 Grammy Winners Are...

Illustrated by Ly Ngo.
Music's biggest night has arrived. Brace yourselves for performances from Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett; Hozier and Annie Lennox; and Jessie J with Tom Jones. Beyoncé is slated to take us to church, too. 

Who's going to take home Grammy gold? The night is peppered with big stage productions, but we can't forget what our faves are actually performing for (besides us). There are awards to be given out, after all. Will Sam Smith steal the show or will Bey's surprise album win everything (it's nominated for)?

We'll be updating this list with the winners as the night unfolds — so you wont be left out on any potential viral moments your coworkers will be gossiping about tomorrow morning. We'll also be live-tweeting all night because what's an awards show without 140 characters of sass?
