The 2016 Grammys have come and gone, but not without its fair share of memorable moments. Whether you loved it or hated it, (we camped with the former!) Gaga delivered a tribute to late rock legend David Bowie that won’t soon be forgotten; major red carpet moments were had and haircut trends (mullet, anyone?) revived. Now, check out the goods you didn’t get to see with these backstage Insta snaps straight from stars who experienced the night in real time.
