NEW YORK — The Grammy Awards returned to Madison Square Garden Sunday for a initial time given 2003, and a throng of scarcely 20,0000 welcomed music’s biggest stars for a 3½-hour categorical rite televised by CBS. But here are some things we didn’t see on TV. 

1. Kesha’s Prayer Circle

Singer Kesha, whose Praying — achieved with Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello and Julia Michaels — was a rare Me Too impulse during a Grammys, prepared for a intense opening with what seemed to be an unpretentious request circle. The singers, with a white-clad organisation dubbed a Resistance Revival Chorus, were seen from a side behind a partition, and onstage ended a opening with a postulated organisation hug. 

Host James Corden applauded, and told a throng that “we’re in a midst of a transformation that commands a attention.” 

2. Sam Smith was nervous

The British crooner, who told Ryan Seacrest that “singing in front of people is still nerve-racking,” was glimpsed pacing nervously backstage for several mins before singing Pray, by a side perspective of one of dual partitioned sets on a categorical stage. Wearing what seemed to be a prolonged white lab coat, he was also one of a handful of performers who had lyrics to his strain displayed on a Teleprompter. 

Other backstage antics: Multiple-Grammy leader Bruno Mars’ backup dancers, colorfully clad in gold, immature and orange, were seen practicing their dance moves for several minutes before his opening of Finesse.

3. Celebrity sightings

Album of a year nominee, Lorde, and Sam Smith were speckled blending it adult during a blurb break. Though from where we were sitting we’re not certain if she offering a Too Good during Goodbyes thespian a swill from her flask.

Fashion choices done it easy to mark some celebs. Chrissy Teigen was tough to skip walking opposite a building territory of a locus in her sparkling Yanina Couture gown. It also wasn’t tough to find Beyoncé, sitting front-row core with her family, thanks to her fashion-forward hat.

4. Off-air directives

Throughout a show, a executive or theatre manager regularly admonished a nervous throng to lapse to their seats as blurb breaks were ending. Many swarming around a round theatre in a center of a building as organisation members attempted to bucket in equipment.

 And during one break only before the tribute to a victims of a Route 91 Harvest Festival sharpened featuring Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne and Eric Church, showgoers were warned a “next act has a really romantic moment. We respectfully ask that we reason your applause.” (Many didn’t.) 

5. The after-party 

A raucous after-party during a Marriott Marquis Hotel, half a mile uptown from a Garden, featured thousands of guest widespread among (and beyond) two sprawling ballrooms on opposite floors. A prominence to opposition a awards show: Nile Rodgers (last year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee) and Chic achieved a fun miscellany of some of a songwriter’s biggest hits, from We Are Family to Get Lucky, which he pronounced he wrote with Pharrell Williams as a “motivational song” after violence cancer, twice.
