If you ever suspected that award show season was like one big non-stop party for celebrities, you’d be right. Sure, movies stars like to let loose and television actors know how to have fun—but it would appear no one in showbiz knows how to party like musicians!

How do we know? Because we were right there, partying alongside your favorite stars!

Luckily for you, we have the hookup! Check out who we saw, what we heard and more behind the scenes at the Grammys!

Who: Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson

Where: Pre-Grammy Beats Music Launch Party at Belasco

When: Jan. 24

What: Despite the recent arrest of her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez was seen at the Beats Music Launch Party with her pal and Spring Breakers costar Ashley Benson. According to on-looker, Sel “looked really happy—not a care in the world and totally in her own zone.”

 

Who: Drake, Rihanna

Where: 1 OAK LA Grand opening Weekend Hosted by Jay Z and Presented by D’Usse

When: Jan. 25

What: To celebrate the opening of 1 OAK LA, Drake hit the DJ booth and was spinning all night long! Not only did he give a shout out to his fellow Grammy nominees, but he also gave a special announcement when his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, arrived and even played her favorite type of music, reggae!

Who: Cyndi Lauper

Where: Grammy Awards Pre-Telecast

When: Jan. 26

What: Pop music legend Cyndi Lauper hosted the pre-telecast for the Grammys and seemed to be having a blast announcing the winners—even though most of the stars weren’t there to accept their awards! Luckily Cyndi got into it and accepted the awards on the winner’s behalf, like when Michael Bublé took home to honor for Best Traditional Pop Album: “I want to thank you all for voting for me, Michael Bublé,” she joked! She was also sure to often include, “The artist would like to thank the academy and their moms.” LOL!


Who: Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr

Where: The Grammys Press Room

When: Jan. 26

What: They say it’s his birthday… Moments before the show began, remaining Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr invited the audience to sing happy birthday to one of the producers of the Grammys!

Who: Kathy Griffin

Where: The Grammys Pre-Telecast

When: Jan. 26

What: You go girl! After being nominated six times, Kathy Griffin finally took home a Grammy for Best Comedy Album. The funny lady is only the third woman to nab that honor, and she obviously gave a hilarious acceptance speech to celebrate.

“I have to thank a lot of people who got me here, darn it, and I don’t know all of them but they were an integral part to my success,” she said. “Their names are Oprah Winfrey, Ryan Seacrest, Paula Abdul, Lindsay Lohan—any of the Lohans really. I want to thank Justin Bieber for giving me his ‘relax juice’ today in Panama City. He said it would keep me ‘calm.’”

Who: Ozzy Osbourne

Where: Backstage at the Grammys

When: Jan. 26

What: Apparently, Ozzy Osbourne’s inability to introduce Ringo Starr was just as confusing for him as it was for the rest of us! When asked what he was supposed to say, he said, “I don’t know, I completely f*cked it up!” And that isn’t the only thing he’s confused about!

He was also overheard saying “Who the f*ck is Taylor Swift?”—even though the 24-year-old blonde is good friends with his daughter, Kelly!

Who: Anna Kendrick, Katy Perry and John Mayer

Where: Universal Music Group Post-Grammys Party

When: Jan. 26

What: Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick was partying alongside everyone’s favorite couple, Katy Perry and John Mayer! According to an onlooker, one of John and Katy’s cutest moments came when he took his camera—which he was wearing around his neck all night—to take picture of his beautiful lady!

He later used the same camera to take pictures of Anna Kendrick chugging champagne from the bottle—before turning and chugging himself!

Who: Nelly

Where: Republic Records Grammy Party

When: Jan. 26

What: An eyewitness told In Touch Nelly was having a blast at the Republic Records post-Grammy party—especially when his hit songs “Hot In Herre” and “Air Force Ones” came on! Clearly he wasn’t the only one enjoying it, as there were lines of girls waiting to have their picture taken with the rapper.
