LOS ANGELES — If you watched the 61st Grammy Awards, you know that Cardi B got teary onstage, Drake got cut off after a surprise appearance and Dolly Parton proved she’s still a phenomenal performer.
But there are some Grammy scenes that don’t make it to the telecast. Here’s what we saw away from the camera lenses and backstage at Staples Center on Sunday.
Bebe Rexha was LIVING
Standing in the front, stage right, Bebe Rexha couldn’t bear to sit down during Cardi B and Alicia Keys’ performances. She was cheering, waving her arms and taking it all in.
Even before the show started, on the red carpet, she appreciated live singing – namely from the Backstreet Boys. The band was serenading USA TODAY, when Rexha enthusiastically joined in, singing the echoey part (“got, got, got… “) of their song “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” and announcing: “That’s my favorite song ever!”

Kacey Musgraves shared her “ultimate fantasy”
Kacey Musgraves was one of the biggest winners of the night, pulling in four awards including the marquee album of the year award prize for “Golden Hour.”
After wiping that shocked look off her face, she was calm backstage, even filling the awkward moments backstage when technical issues interrupted her Q&A with reporters. “Does anyone have any jokes?” she inquired.
Her big celebratory plans for the evening included a party, sure. “But ultimately, my end destination is waiting in bed for my Postmates,” she said, though she didn’t say what she’d be ordering. “Seeing that it’s being delivered is kind of my ultimate fantasy.”
