    Yahoo Music2 mths ago

    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.

Not too surprising considering she stood up for the boys at the VMAs a few months ago.

    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.
