Sporting a cool white tuxedo, Katy Perry debuted her single “Chained to the Rhythm.”

And, after a rocky start, Adele sang George Michael’s “Fastlove” in a tribute to the late artist.

The Grammys also honored Prince with a performance from the late artist’s longtime collaborators The Time as well as Bruno Mars.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Adele picked up awards throughout the night. When she took the stage for Album of the Year, the singer said she couldn’t possibly accept the honor, choosing to dedicate it to Beyoncé for “Lemonade” instead.
