There were a lot of fireworks on the screen Sunday night, but even more chemistry inside the room as the stars mixed and mingled during the breaks at downtown L.A.’s Staples Center. Here from our reporter on the scene are the greatest Grammys moments that didn’t appear on TV.
1. Beyonce and Jay Z Were Drunk in Love ... Literally
Music's king and queen did not disappoint up close and personal. After their steamy performance the couple kept it going in the audience, crazy with PDA and definitely rivaling Taylor Swift for most fun attendees. During Daft Punk, Pharell and Stevie Wonder's performances, Bey and Jay were having a dance off in the aisle. Singing along to the song, the couple laughed and showed off some moves getting seriously down. In case you were wondering, Bey and Jay don't discriminate with their music choices.

While the big show was happening on screen, there was plenty of action in the audience, the lobby and backstage that the public couldn't see. Here's a peek at what you missed from inside the theater.
1. Gaga is a Directioner: Before Lady Gaga crushed it on stage, she came out to the audience to watch one important group: One Direction. No seriously … sitting in a seat that would eventually pass to Taylor Swift, Gaga was on her feet during 1D's entire performance of "Story of My Life." She was singing, dancing, and clapping. Not too surprising considering she stood up for the boys at the VMAs a few months ago.

At this point, when you date Taylor Swift, you should expect consequences (or rather, a song written detailing what went wrong in your relationship).
The 23-year-old singer covers New York magazine, and in the article, Taylor subtly reveals that she heard from Jake Gyllenhaal — whom she dated for about two months in fall 2010 — after her mega-successful album "Red" came out.
“I heard from the guy that most of 'Red' is about,” Swift recalls (for those not keeping track at home, Yahoo Music can confirm most of the album is about the 32-year-old actor). “He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice. Nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy e-mails I got from this one dude."
Considering Taylor has a long list of former flames — including Harry Styles, Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, and Conor Kennedy (just to name a few) — that doesn't narrow down who Crazy Email Guy might be.
However, it sounds like Swift preferred Gyllenhaal's approach.

Taylor Swift may have found herself on the other side of the poison pen.
It sounds like Justin Bieber is throwing some shade at the country darling in his new track "All Bad." In the song, Bieber, 19, croons to an ex-girlfriend ( cough , Selena Gomez) about how her best friend is meddling in their relationship.
"It's another, if it ain’t one thing / Instigators like pouring fire on propane / The wrong thing, they be worried about / Ooh, you know females / And how they like to run their mouths," is how Bieber kicks off the catchy track.
A few other lyrics that has Beliebers speculating the song is about the 23-year-old?
"Misery, misery, best company / Don’t let them change your mood," and, "Between us, they wanna comment / Your worst enemy some time be your best friend."
Bieber appeared to confirm the song was about Taylor when he retweeted — then quickly deleted — a fan's comment.
I think Justin was shading Taylor in #AllBad

It's been a year and a half since Whitney Houston passed away and today marks what would have been the iconic singer's 50th birthday.
"Omg! Insider" host Kevin Frazier spoke exclusively to Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law, business partner and best friend, about how her family will be marking what would have been Whitney’s half-century marker.
“We are celebrating with a private dinner at our home here in Georgia, that was one of Whitney’s favorite birthday celebrations," Pat states. "It’s a very emotional time for all of us but she would want us to celebrate with peace, love and happiness. Today, we celebrate a legacy of a matchless gift, Whitney Houston … To all of her fans, let’s celebrate with divine peace, love and joy.”

King’s first single “Need a Woman By Friday” hits iTunes today, and he talked with yahoo! music about his solo debut and what this means for the beloved band.
“I wrote the song last year on my birthday,” King told his, calling from the set of his music video shoot in New Orleans. “I had a birthday party coming up and I just had this sinking feeling of needing and wanting a woman at the party there waiting for me. The lyric popped into my head right before I left for the party.”
Unfortunately King says he did not find a woman by that Friday night (although he’s happily taken right now).
So what does this solo project mean for the Grammy nominated band The Fray? King revealed his the guys couldn’t be more supportive.
“I was incredibly nervous to play the single for them,” Joe said. “Finally I broke about a month ago. At the end of the song the guys just went ‘Damn.’ Ben stood up and started clapping. I was blown away with their reaction. Dave was just dead silent, because that’s just what he does. It was great.”
Like when any band member expresses interest in pursuing a solo project, there were a few concerns at first.
