Fact: The Grammys were nothing short of showstopping entertainment.

With more than 15 performances, it was hard to pick our top 5, but lo and behold, we've done just that!

Did Justin Timberlake's comeback performance really wow us? Was Rihanna's lowkey number wow-worthy? Did the Bob Marley tribute work?

Let's hop to it:

Justin Timberlake
He hasn't performed at the Grammys in years, so when he took the stage last night, it was the most-anticipated performance. Looking dapper in a "Suit & Tie", the 32-year-old's new look and sound was perfection. Note: when you're able to get Jay-Z out of his seat and onstage to join you, you know you're doing something right! Sweetest moment? His wife Jessica Biel looking so happy as she cheered on her man from the audience.

Bob Marley Tribute
Can we just discuss all that star talent on stage at this particular moment? It started off with Bruno Mars singing "Locked Out of Heaven" then, all of a sudden, Sting joins him on the number. We always thought Bruno's song kind of sounded like something The Police would have created! From there, it quickly turned to a Bob Marley tribute. Enter Rihanna (who performed early on and rocked it out, too), Damian and Ziggy Marley. Watch the awesomeness for yourselves below.

Carrie Underwood
She came out singing "Blown Away", but we were blown away by her performance! The American Idol champ showed off her chops and sounded beautiful. Coolest part of her time on stage? Her dress lit up on stage! Can this woman be any more beautiful?!

The Black Keys
Joined onstage by Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Dr. John, the band showed why they're worthy of five nominations - they took home three of 'em! The duo performed their hit "Lonely Boy" and even had the likes of Katy Perry and John Mayer up on their feet, rocking out. It totally made us want to learn how to play guitar.

Maroon 5 & Alicia Keys
Adam Levine sings and that's enough to make our day. But then put Alicia Keys alongside his band Maroon 5, and it's Grammys gold. Maroon 5 performs at first, but then Alicia comes out, stars banging on a drum and goes into her hit "Girl Is On Fire." And she was singing the truth - this girl really was on fire! Check it out below.
