The four-hour 61st annual Grammys that took place Sunday saw major displays of incredible talent in 18 star-studded performances and—of course—handed out a ton of major awards. 

Kacey Musgraves won four Grammys, with her album Golden Hour winning the coveted Album Of The Year as well as Best Country Album, and songs “Space Cowboy” being named Best Country Song and “Butterflies” winning Best Country Solo Performance.

Childish Gambino’s This Is America won Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Rap/Sung Performance, and Best Music Video. These were major accomplishments for an artist who didn’t show up to accept the awards. 

Speaking of absences, a few of the biggest names in the music industry didn’t attend the event — Beyonce, Taylor Swift, and Ariana Grande to name a few — but there were still some truly memorable moments from the evening.

Below, check out five of the top moments from the 2019 Grammys.
