Instagrammys: The Best Behind-The-Scenes Photos From The 2015 Grammy Awards

Alle Connell

The 2015 Grammys were full of amazing moments, fabulous performances and (of course) incredible beauty looks. Naturally, we kept our eyes peeled for all the best behind-the-scenes Instagram action from our favourite celebrities–it’s almost as good as being there!

Taylor Swift’s date to the Grammys was none other than a redhead named Abigail; a few days before the event, she posted a shot circa 2005 of the two of them looking terribly fancy. We think Taylor’s sleek bob and Abigail’s cloud of curls were a distinct stylistic improvement, but what we wouldn’t have given for some crazy gloves on the red carpet.


Nicki Minaj posted this shot with Miley Cyrus taken during the telecast (we love when our favorite celebs hang out together). Nicki’s flawless cat eye liner and deep bronze eyeshadow is perfection, while Miley looks radiant with pushed-back hair and peach lips. Also, check out Nicki’s INSANE stiletto manicure. We’re loving every detail of her look.

Speaking of Miley, she posted this cute shot of fellow cropped blonde Rita Ora touching up her lipstick at a pre-Grammys party. One, two, three: aww!

Kim Kardashian blew our minds with her gorgeous long bob, then cracked us up with this hilarious audience selfie with friends John Legend and Chrissy Teigen (who was also sporting some of the night’s best hair).

Locked out

Unfortunately, even after his INCREDIBLE performance of “Glory” with Common, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen still managed to lock themselves out. How they managed to look so glamorous even while slumped in a hotel hallway is a mystery to us.

Rihanna‘s instagram is reliably one of the highlights of our life, and the shot she posted while getting ready with her squad is basically the cutest.

A post shared by Gwen Stefani (@gwenstefani) on

Though without her signature red lip on the red carpet, Gwen Stefani instagrammed a picture of her INCREDIBLE performance outfit before taking the stage. Her slightly tousled platinum updo was complimented by deep red nails and–you guessed it–bright red lipstick. Matching makeup to manicure to gown is a risky move, but Gwen can do no wrong in our eyes.


Jessie J‘s slicked back hair and marsala lips were hands down one of our favorite beauty looks of the night. Her manager posted this stunning shot of the singer before her performance with Tom Jones. We especially love the long, light-colored nails with the vampy lip.


And of course, Beyonce totally won instagram when she posted this ADORABLE clip of her dancing with Jay Z after the show. Not only is this officially one of our relationship goals, we can all gaze longingly upon the majesty that is her hair. Bow down.
