Here are the five most memorable moments of the 58th edition of the awards show on Monday:

1. Taylor Swift shames Kanye West in Grammy acceptance speech
Swift wanted fans and her fellow celebrities to know that she’s not afraid to speak out. As the music mogul stepped up to the podium, she conspicuously let West know her feelings about Kanye's test song "Famous,” where West refers to Swift with the statement, "I made that (expletive) famous." Whether Kanye actually experiences the emotion we call shame is another question.

As singers John Legend, Meghan Trainor, Tyrese and Luke Bryan took the stage to pay tribute to singer and performer Lionel Richie, Lovato took the lead during “Hello,” and the audience loved it. 

3. Lady Gaga’s fantastically weird Bowie tribute
Just one month after famed musician David Bowie’s passing, Lady Gaga paid an emotional tribute to his artistry as she sung snippets of “Space Oddity," "Rebel Rebel," "Fame," "Pressure” and other Bowie favorites.

4. Confusion over Zendaya’s new 'do
This year, actress and singer Zendaya decided to show us something new as she stepped out on the red carpet at the 58th annual Grammys. Fans and bystanders expressed mixed reviews of Zendaya’s “menswear-inspired look.”

5. Technical issues during Adele's performance
Adele knows what sounds good and what sounds off. During her Grammy performance of “All I Ask,” she recognized that something was definitely off. The “Hello” singer took to Twitter to explain what went wrong.
