Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts had their work cut out for them as hosts of the unwieldy show. The most awkward moment came when Rashida Jones handed them two screaming babies. As Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took the stage to accept the breakout award, Macklemore joked, “I can’t believe we won these kids!”

Audience Participation



Arcade Fire and Avicii filmed live music videos on the spot with a little help from the audience. Check out the video above starring Greta Gerwig in Arcade Fire’s “Afterlife,” and the clip below of Michael Shannon and Vanessa Hudgens in Avicci’s “Wake Me Up.”

Ewww, Lady Gaga’s grill is so gross. The singer paid homage to her “Dope” cover art by strolling the red carpet in a skeleton grill. Her rumored ex boyfriend Taylor Kinney didn’t seem to mind, he still made out with Gaga (who took out the grill for her “Dope” performance) after the show!



‘Rap God’



Artist of the Year Eminem proved he’s back with a vengeance when he took the stage for a black and white performance of “Rap God.” Watch!

It seems Tyler, the Creator and M.I.A. struck up a fast friendship on the red carpet. After the event, the Odd Future frontman tweeted, “M.I.A MIGHT BE THE COOLEST FEMALE OF EVER.” We can only hope there is a collaboration in the works!
