If you didn't have six hours to spare on Sunday night, you missed plenty of action at the 2020 Grammy Awards between the over-the-top red carpet fashion and surprise winners. Luckily, the memes that have taken over Twitter and Instagram perfectly captured the essence of the night (and then some), and we all know those live on far beyond the awards themselves.
Billy Porter ensured the evening would spawn memes for the ages when he arrived in a hat that came with its own remote, allowing its bedazzled curtains to be opened and closed for extra drama. Lana Del Rey brought her hot cop boyfriend Sean Larkin to the show, and despite not winning an award for Norman F*cking Rockwell, still wound up as one of the most buzzed-about artists of the night. Below, all the best memes from the 2020 Grammy Awards, so you can relive the only moments that matter without having to sit through a full re-watch.
