||| Time to live Tweet the Grammys! Here we go… feel free to join in, Pyxis Mag readers!

||| Welcome Grammy fans! Join us – we’re tweeting the 2015 Grammy Awards starting right now!

||| @llcoolj is back to host, and we’re on the scene for the Grammy 2015 Awards, with Brian Johnson and his fellow geezers opening the show.

||| Wow – this is some dated, erhm, we mean “vintage,” rock n’ roll, isn’t it? @Grammys2015

||| Quick! Someone get @ladygaga some double-stick tape and some modesty!

||| Front row roll call: @PaulMcCartney, @ladygaga, @edsheeran

||| Presenting Best New Artist: @taylorswift13 in a sweeping and modern turquoise gown.

||| “As a former loser of this award, I can say that if you don’t win, it’ll be just fine, just shake it off” @taylorswift13

||| Best New Artist: @samsmithworld!

||| @samsmithworld on stage with his brand new Best New Artist Grammy, wearing a bright cherry-red suit.

||| Commercials already? Sheesh.

||| And we’re back! Aw, James Corden @JKCorden in the audience! He’s going to be so great on the Late Late Show!

||| @ArianaGrande now on stage, surrounded by a bunch of purple and pink glowing tubes.

||| @JessieJ and @RealSirTomJones singing “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” are a very… odd couple. And @JessieJ forgot most of her dress.

||| Sorry, but @JessieJ + @RealSirTomJones = zero chemistry.

||| This is like wedding reception karaoke. Who’s idea was this?

||| Time for another award: Best Pop Solo Performance…

||| Best Pop Solo Performance: “Happy!” Congrats @Pharrell! (bet he’s… happy! Yeah, we said it.)

||| Yeah – @Pharrell rocking the grey bermuda shorts suit and bow-tie!

||| We’re mostly @cordkillers here in the @PyxisMag offices, so all these commercials are just… weird to see.

||| Well, the Screaming Goat is now endorsing mobile phones, and @gwenstefani is shilling @MasterCard…

||| What’s up with the Twitter blast,  you ask? We’re live-tweeting Grammys 2015! Join us!

||| @DierksBentley introduces @mirandalambert performing “Little Red Wagon” complete with harmonica and pyrotechnics

||| @mirandalambert said a bad word. Or the sound mixer just messed up.

||| The BeeGees just snagged the Lifetime Achievement Award.

||| Best Pop Vocal Album: @coldplay, Miley, Ariana, @katyperry, @samsmithworld, or @edsheeran…

||| Best Pop Vocal goes to @samsmithworld! That’s two awards now tonight!

||| “Dreams don’t have deadlines” – @llcoolj

||| @kanyewest is back on the Grammy stage.

||| Oh, Auto-Tune. When are you going to just go away?

||| Miley Cyrus is a scary, scary person.

||| @Madonna is back, in a toreador costume with a bunch of men wearing bull horns and rhinestone masks.

||| Aw. Poor @Madonna. She must’ve passed out, they had to hoist her up off the stage with wires.

||| Why are there sportball people here? Oh. They’re announcing Best Rock Album.

||| Best Rock Album Winner: @beck! Yeah! (And yay, they didn’t give it to a geezer act!)

||| @nilerodgers and @smokey_robinson honouring George Harrison with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

||| And now, Best R&B Performance: @beyonce – congrats!

||| Hey, look, it’s @JKCorden! Introducing @edsheeran! Cooooool

||| More vintage people – Jeff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra. Hey, look @PaulMcCartney digs it!

||| Hey, we all actually know this awesome song! “Mr. Blue Sky,” with @edsheeran singing along with Jeff Lynne

||| W00t!

||| @RyanSeacrest is onstage – hmm, why isn’t HE hosting the Grammys?

||| And now, a duet from @adamlevine and @gwenstefani! Adam in a snazzy grey suit and Gwen in an elegant red gown

||| Lots of strings supporting @gwenstefani and @adamlevine’s “My Heart is Open” – pretty!

||| Aaand we’re back! @Hozier teams up with @AnnieLennox – should be interesting hearing these two voices together

||| Everyone here agrees: @Hozier has a pretty cool voice, but this is such a weird song. Where’s Annie?

||| @AnnieLennox in the house – one of the most amazing voices in pop music. Wish she didn’t always look so cranky, though

||| We keeping looking for someone to make fun of, and no one’s even dressed particularly weird this year.

||| Oh look, just in time – thanks @Meghan_Trainor! We finally get to say “what the heck is she wearing?”

||| Best Country Album: @Mirandalambert’s “Platinum” – and a hug from hubby @blakeshelton, country star in his own right and @NBCTheVoice coach

||| Hey, look, it’s @theweeknd

||| @pharrell has a Babelfish in his ear!!

||| Wow – a lemon-seasoned apocalyptic orchestral version of “Happy” from @Pharrell – very different, very cool!

||| Ooh a sneak peek in the production bunker at #Grammys2015!

||| @BarackObama with a serious message for the Grammys 2015 audience.

||| @katyperry is singing in front of two silhouettes. Thankfully, they’re not sharks.

||| Okay, who’s smoking backstage? I told you to put that out!

||| Madonna in the audience – she also forgot to put her trousers back on. Guess that’s the trend this year.

||| Look, it’s @Imaginedragons! They’re not really at the Grammys, but they rock… where are they, anyway?

||| Hey, Grammys, spend less money on pyro and dancing shadow aliens next year and you can afford to fly in @Imaginedragons.

||| @Imaginedragons was a 3-minute commercial? It was more entertaining than half of the Grammys so far. We’re so confused.

||| Look, it’s @itstonybennett and @ladygaga. We finally got someone whose outfit we can properly make fun of (and it’s not Tony)

||| @ladygaga looks like they yanked her out of some D-level jazz club in Greenwich Village.

||| Well, at least @itstonybennett probably has lots of extra money now.

||| Talk to the harp, @Usher

||| Is it just us, or is this Grammys particularly tepid?

||| What do you think about this year’s awards? Does it need more oomph, or is this more subdued feel cool with you? Tell us!

||| It’s not the Grammys without the yearly appearance from Stevie Wonder.

||| Is this a commercial for Tinder or an anti-smoking PSA?

||| Darn it. You leave the room for a minute and Country-Western George Michael is already halfway through his tune.

||| Still can’t figure out who the country guy singing flat is?

||| Wow. Snore. Can somebody PLEASE feed these people some caffeine or something?

||| New song from @PaulMcCartney, @rihanna, @kanyewest – very… strange… combo…

||| @PaulMcCartney we love you for staying relevant, but that was… sorry, ‘strange’ is all we’ve got.

||| @taylorswift13 introduces her friend @samsmithworld and @maryjblige

||| Ooh lampshades

||| Purty.

||| Miss Grammy here needs to learn how to read a teleprompter.

||| @juanes onstage now at Grammys 2015

||| Well, internet, that didn’t take long now, did it? Grammys 2015 #leftshark

leftshart

||| Ladies and gentlemen, Prince, in his orange pajamas. With a cane. To announce Album of the Year

||| Who will win?

||| And Album of the Year is not @edsheeran or @samsmithworld – it’s @beck’s “Morning Phase” – surprise! It’s an upset!

||| Oh no. We haven’t seen a “social media reporter” since Christina Milian was being pointless on @NBCTheVoice

||| Huh? Did we suddenly get transported to a poetry slam?

||| What the heck is going on? Now we’re in a trashed hotel room full of mimes

||| More weird. This could be the weirdest and dullest Grammys ever.

||| Producer of the Year: Max Martin

||| And boom! Right into Song of the Year: Please not @Meghan_Trainor.

||| Song of the Year: @samsmithworld’s “Stay With Me”

||| “I’m having a really, really, really good night” – @samsmithworld

||| It’s 11 pm – is that it?

||| We love this adorable @Android commercial with all the animal pals. So cute.

||| @Letterman gets a special thank you from Grammys 2015 for bringing new music to his late night show!

||| But wait, there’s more! @Coldplay’s Chris Martin and @beck on stage now!!

||| Brilliant! @Coldplay’s Chris Martin and @beck’s voices sound extremely cool together!

||| Ha ha! @Coldplay’s Chris Martin stepped back to give @beck the spotlight and Beck yanked him back forward on the stage

||| @steviewonder’s back with @iamjamiefoxx to announce Record of the Year

Grammy Album
||| Confused? Record of the Year rewards the entire track including performance/production; Song of the Year honours songwriter.

||| Record of the Year is: @samsmithworld – that’s a total of four tonight for Sam! #TaylorSwiftShutout #itscooltheyrefriends

||| @IAMJHUD Jennifer Hudson, great cause, horrible dress. Please get a better stylist.

||| Shelving the snark for now. In memoriam, Robin Williams, Tommy Ramone, Casey Kasem, Maya Angelou, so many more. @Grammys2015

||| @llcoolj and @GwynethPaltrow on stage to introduce @Beyonce

||| @Beyonce looks like she’s getting married, and she’s singing a hymn. Hmm.

||| @johnlegend on stage

||| Aaaaand that’s all, folks! #Grammys2015 is over. Thanks for hanging out with us here at @PyxisMag!
