If you did not watch the Grammys, you missed Paul McCartney dancing to ELO, Kanye being Kanye and an exuberant Taylor Swift being judged. But you also missed a few serious messages, too. Here are some of the most talked about moments.

Last night:

Madonna performed "Living For Love" with a bunch of horned dancers.

Pharrell Williams silently judged Taylor Swift, who has never not danced at an awards show to the best of our knowledge.

Paul McCartney danced to ELO, but sat down after being caught on camera.

The President popped in with an important message about how violence against women is not okay.

Followed by a touching speech from domestic abuse survivor Brooke Axtell.

Which was sort of odd, because Chris Brown was nominated for an award. So was Eminem, who won Rap Album Of the Year, for The Marshall Mathers LP2. In his recent song "Shady CXCPHER," he rap about punching singer Lana Del Rey twice in the face "like Ray Rice."

Prince reminded us that albums still matter, like books and black lives.

And it appeared Pharrell made a nod to Ferguson in his performance of "Happy."
