Well guys, the biggest night in music most certainly lived up to its name! The 2013 Grammy Awards have come and gone, but the winners they created tonight will live on forever!

Australian music superstar Gotye took home three awards for his album, Making Mirrors, and his pop anthem, “Somebody That I Used To Know.” Gotye won Best Alternative Music Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Record of the Year. It’s gotta be pretty amazing having Prince say he loves your song as he gives you an award.

Speaking of Prince, he is fabulous and I love him and his outfit made me happy. Gotye wasn’t the only big winner tonight. New group Fun took home a bunch of awards including Song of the Year for “We Are Young” and Best New Artists. Check out the full list of winners after the jump!

Also, Kelly Clarkson has another Grammy! My favorite American Idol winner won Best Pop Vocal Album for Stronger. It was awesome. Kelly is awesome. Katy Perry‘s boobs were awesome. Ellen DeGeneres staring at Katy Perry’s boobs was awesome. There was a lot of awesome going around.

The show was also full of some amazing–and some bizarre–performances. Taylor Swift opened up the show with a crazy Alice In Wonderland/circus themed rendition of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” You go Taylor, making that whole hipster thing work for you.

My personal favorite performance was Ed Sheeran and Elton John‘s rendition of “The A Team.” Basically, it was my two favorite red headed singers singing my current song obsession. What could be better than that?! Check out the full list of winners below and tell us what you think in the comments! Any upsets in your eyes?
