Holy crap, the GRAMMYs were long. And not because the acceptance speeches were long -- each winner was given approximately five seconds to thank everyone. So in case you don’t have three and a half hours to marathon 22 performances (23, if you count LL Cool J’s weird performance of “Going Back to Cali” at the top of the show) we ranked them for you.
From best to worst:
Song: “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” and “Glory”
Moment to Talk About: That one second as the lights were coming on and Beyoncé was standing in that glittery white gown looking straight out of Solange’s wedding photo was already better than any performance of the night. Take Us To Church, Bey (And John Legend And Common).

Meanwhile, Yoakam sported tight jeans, a blue button-down shirt and a cowboy hat. The country stars then belted out the hit together. "Don't let this moment linger/ Now would be a real good time," they crooned. "To reach out with your fingers/ And get 'em tangled up with mine/ Let her know for sure/ That I'm more »
The 2015 Grammy Award winners have been coming fast and furious for nearly three hours. That's the strange thing about Grammy night. Almost all of the awards are given out beforehand, so the actual telecast features only a dozen awards (give or take) and a wide assortment of performance. Follow along and join the conversation as I live-blog all of those performances, plus all of the awards, even though I have no real opinions on the inevitable winners and losers. It should be fun! 8:00 p.m. Et. "Madam Secretary" and "The Good Wife" will be back next week! 8:00 p.m. Thank you, LL, for reminding me of the things we were talking about after last year's Grammys. I remember none of those things. 8:01 p.m. "For those about to rap, for those about to sing, for those about to play, we salute you!" LL Cool J says, introducing »

The first half of the fifth season aired this past fall, so this Sunday's episode on AMC will relaunch from the point where they left off. It follows the "heartbreaking" death of Beth and offers "more proof that there really is no such thing as a safe haven" on the zombie drama. Fans can already watch the first two minutes of the mid-season premiere, an episode titled "What Happened and What's Going On."
