The 2014 Grammy Winners Are…

Grammy_WinnersIllustrated by Ly Ngo.
Another year, another Grammy nod for Taylor Swift. Yes, hi, and welcome to the 56th annual Grammy Awards, "music's biggest night." This evening, we've been promised a Bey and Jay performance, a Lorde, and many a ring getting put on it. It's the one night where red-carpet-look predictions are anything goes and star-sightings can be, erm, egg-cellent. There will undoubtedly be some controversy, some shock, and pop-diva fandom battles over the Internet. "Your fave could never?" We'll see about that, y'all. We. Will. See.
Anyway, keep it locked here, and your finger (the one on the hand that's not live-tweeting) on the refresh button because we'll be updating this list as the night goes on and thank-you speeches roll in. Oh, and while we're on the topic of live-tweeting, we'll be doing the same over here. We're (not) sorry in advance for the obscene number of "Yaaaas" Tweets.
