5) The somewhat anticlimactic appearance of Chris Brown with Rihanna
Despite a few cutaways of the pair sitting together in the audience and Brown standing and clapping following her performance, seeing the two together was not as big a deal as the run up felt like it should be.
Friday marked the fourth anniversary of Brown's assault on Rihanna, which occurred before that year's Grammy ceremony.
The pair had been a huge focus of this year's Grammys as fans waited to see if they would arrive at the ceremony together and how much "togetherness" they would exhibit.
But in the end it felt like really no big deal.
More surprising was six-time nominee Frank Ocean not winning any of the big awards he was up for.
Ocean scored best urban contemporary album and shared best rap collaboration with Kanye West and Jay-Z for "No Church in the Wild," but lost best new artist to Fun. and album of the year to Mumford & Sons.
It was also more fun checking to see which artists ignored the reported Grammys memo asking them to cover up (we are looking at you and your rather exposed bosom Katy Perry). Jennifer Lopez even joked about it while presenting.
"As you can see I read the memo," Lopez said, wearing a black dress cut extremely high and fully exposing one leg.
