Stars React To The 2017 Grammy Award Winners

The 59th annual Grammy Awards took place on Feb. 12, 2017, and stars both there and elsewhere were watching and live-tweeting their experiences. We were there to catch them. From Daft Punk and Beyoncé's triumphant performances to Adele's literally showstopping tribute to George Michael, there was certainly a lot to talk about. Here's what had the celebrity-sphere buzzing during the show.

Twenty One Pilots drops its drawers

Ending up on stage with your pants down is usually everybody's worst nightmare, but the duo of Twenty One Pilots—Tyler Johnson and Josh Dun—managed to turn the occasion into a cause for celebration. Stripping their trousers off in the aisle when their win was announced, they took the stage in boxer briefs, black socks, and tuxedo tops to accept their award for best pop duo/group performance for "Stressed Out." Tyler recalled a promise Josh and he made while watching the Grammy Awards at home with friends years ago: "As we were watching, we noticed every single one of us was in our underwear, and seriously, Josh said to me, and we were no one at the time, he turned to me and he said, 'If we ever go to the Grammys, if we ever win a Grammy, we should receive it just like this.'"

Many stars took to Twitter to applaud the unorthodox, yet motivational acceptance speech. Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson tweeted his take with a fist bump, saying, "Dope acceptance speech...Anyone can do anything. Luv that message. Congrats boys." Triumph the Insult Comic Dog found the speech "very inspiring" and gave a shout out to the viewers of the program watching the award speech fully nude. Meanwhile, Girl Meets World star Sabrina Carpenter simply wants to adopt Johnson and Dun.

Chance the Rapper wins big, the hip hop world applauds

Capping off a breakthrough year for a favorite child of Chicago, the ever-affable Chance the Rapper took home awards for best new artist and best rap performance for his Coloring Book cut "No Problem." Fellow rapper Drake could barely contain his excitement, texting from England (via Variety), "Congrats boi! Well deserved. I am in Manchester having a drink for u broski." Chance reportedly responded in kind, "Love you bro! I'm hearing amazing things about your tour." Rapper Lil B, a man of many beefs, tweeted his support, and the Brooklyn-based rapper Creative Gold pointed out that Chance has now won more Grammys than he's sold records because Chance released his music independently and free of charge.

Solange wins her first Grammy

Hot off of her rapturously-received album A Seat at the Table, Beyoncé's little sister, Solange Knowles, took home her first Grammy victory, best R&B performance, for the ethereal cut "Cranes in the Sky." This was Solange's first nomination, and other stars around the world were thrilled to see her make her mark. She also drew attention on the red carpet, arriving in a metallic, monochromatic off-the-shoulder ensemble of gold, a color scheme that seemed to be a theme among the Knowles family on Grammy night. Solange's award wasn't televised, so outspoken little sis tweeted an acceptance speech: "Thank you for your well wishes. Gratitude. If I would've gotten to accept this, I would've said black girls/women ARE grammys mothaf**kaaaa."

David Bowie sweeps his categories

The late, lamented David Bowie's final projects won a blistering five awards on Grammy night, including his first Grammy awards for his music. (Previous wins had been for video projects and a lifetime achievement award.) The five-for-five streak was one of the highlights of the night, and Bowie's son, filmmaker Duncan Jones, couldn't be prouder. He tweeted a tearjerker of a message along with a black and white photo of a young Jones holding his dad in his arms: "So proud of you dad!" he said. "Would hold you up forever."

Beyoncé performs; the world bows

Beyoncé took to the stage draped in gold with her baby bump bared for a grandiose performance of the songs "Love Drought" and "Sandcastles." She was flanked by dozens of women that echoed the vibes of 2016's Lemonade visual album. Model Gigi Hadid freaked out, Chrissy Teigen went into respiratory arrest, and Kelly Rowland unleashed a fleet of bees. While many found the performance empowering, some comics on Twitter gave Bey grief for her acceptance speech for best urban contemporary album, which she read from a golden booklet that matched her goddess outfit. Fierce? Yes. A little ridiculous? Okay, sure, that too.

Adele has to say hello again

Live performance is a tricky thing, and after a technical fumble midway through her tribute to the late George Michael, Adele felt she needed to start over. Celebrities around the world tweeted their support for her second try. Nicki Minaj called Adele "so bossed up" for having the guts and will to start over and keep going. Eric Stonestreet of Modern Family applauded Adele for the "life lessons," and singer Christina Perri appreciated the moment for showing us "it's ok not to be perfect." Adele, who went on to win album of the year for 25, and record of the year and song of the year for "Hello," clearly transformed her televised mistake into just another poignant moment.

Camila Cabello's fairytale fashion

Camila Cabello, formerly of girl group Fifth Harmony, made her solo debut on the red carpet at the 2017 Grammys, and her look lit up the internet. Model Diana Saldana called her a "real-life Disney princess", a sentiment shared by country crooner Mary Sarah and a big online following. It remains to be seen if Cabello's solo career will work out, but the "Bad Things" starlet certainly held her own in front of the flashbulbs.

Daft Punk overshadows The Weeknd

With The Weeknd at its side, the French electronic duo Daft Punk took to the Grammy stage with a mashup of "Starboy" and "I Feel It Coming." Daft Punk has a long history of working with big pop stars, and yet the group always seems to become the main attraction. The 2017 award show was no exception. "Daft Punk will always be cooler than anyone else ever," tweeted actor Sean O'Donnell. That may be so, but Perez Hilton asked, "How do we really know that's Daft Punk??" referring to the band's robotic costumes.
