Artists React To The GRAMMYs on Social Media

In case you missed it, the GRAMMYs were last night. Full of gigantic performances that interweaved decades worth of music, the largest stars in the industry, and a few snafus, "the biggest night in music" was a sight to behold. LL Cool J held down his quasi annual hosting gig, and there were more than a few surprises for viewers.
Taking place at Los Angeles' Staples Center, the entire show was presented live. Gwen Stefani used the opportunity to make the first music video created on live television. Lady Gaga gave a stirring tribute to the many faces of David Bowie. Lionel Richie showed that he can still bring down the house. And everyone from Bieber to Taylor Swift seemed to be having the time of their lives.
Despite all the glitz, glamour, and general awe created by such a spectacle, artists still managed to take to social media to share their reactions, thanks, and feelings.
