4.Victoria Monét held back tears during her acceptance speech for Best New Artist. "I moved to LA in 2009," she said. "I like to liken myself to a plant who was planted, and you can look at the music industry as soil. And you can look at it as dirty or it can be looked at as a source of nutrients and water. And my roots have been growing underneath the ground unseen for so long. And I feel like today I’m sprouting finally above ground."

14.Miley Cyrus won her first Grammy for "Flowers." When Mariah Carey presented the award, Miley asked her to stay. "This MC is gonna stand by this MC," she said before sharing a beautiful story about a young boy who tried and tried but couldn't catch a butterfly. "He sat down on the ground, he finally let go, and he surrendered. And he was okay that he wasn't gonna capture this beautiful butterfly. And right when he did is when the butterfly came and landed right on the tip of his nose. This song 'Flowers' is my butterfly."
