From Kanye West’s cute touch-up to Taylor Swift’s ladies’ night, here are the best photos (from backstage and in the audience at L.A.’s Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 8) that didn’t make the 2015 Grammys live telecast!
Miley’s Favorite Matador
Kim Kardashian wiped off Kanye West’s mouth in the audience after he performed “Only One.” Later he kept his mouth shut after hopping onstage to seemingly interrupt Beck’s acceptance speech.
Powder Puff Girls
Longtime pals Rihanna and Katy Perry caught up backstage, and RiRi’s gigantic pink Giambattista Valli Couture gown stole the show.
Queen Bey’s Posse
Beyonce grinned at the all-male choir who accompanied her during her show finale performance of the gospel hymn “Take My Hand Precious Lord.”
Two Legends, One Gaga
Lady Gaga smiled as Paul McCartney greeted Tony Bennett. Later in the night, the former Beatle performed with Kanye West and Rihanna, and Gaga and Bennett teamed up for a classic jazz number.
Taylor Swift posed with Madonna, lording over the pop icon backstage. The “Blank Space” singer may have the height advantage, but Madge’s “Living For Love” performance stole the show.
Bow Down to Blue
Rihanna (who later brought down the house singing “FourFiveSeconds” with Kanye West and Paul McCartney) knelt to talk with Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter backstage. Blue’s famed mom took home three Grammys and even thanked the 3-year-old tot in her speech. All hail, BIC!
