The 2023 Grammys live broadcast may have been filled with memorable moments – but what fans didn’t see on TV was just as entertaining.
Inside the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, the nominees were spotted having the time of their lives as they watched the hours-long show in the VIP section near the stage.
Lizzo was one of the first celebrities to make her way inside the venue and was hard to miss in her stunning bright orange gown by Dolce & Gabbana.
The “Good as Hell” singer was seen snapping pics near her table before the crowd of A-listers assembled into their assigned seats after walking the red carpet.
And Lizzo was truly giving off “bad bitch o’clock” energy throughout the night, turning up with her industry pals. Even when the cameras weren’t rolling, Lizzo and Adele were seen exchanging laughs as they conversed and pumped up their nearby peers.
Lizzo won big herself Sunday night – taking home the Record of the Year award for “About Damn Time” – but was all about spreading good vibes to her fellow artists.
She showed Harry Styles major support throughout the evening by excitedly jumping up and down as he scored multiple wins, including Album of the Year. The two were seen snapping a ton of pics together and cheering each other on after their performances.
Lizzo also couldn’t seem to help herself from fangirling over Beyoncé before and after giving the “Crazy in Love” singer a shoutout in her acceptance speech.
“I won,” Lizzo later wrote on Instagram, sharing snaps of herself posing with Beyoncé and her awards show bestie Adele.
Speaking of Beyoncé, the crowd went absolutely wild when she finally entered the venue fashionably late in a shimmering metallic dress.
Page Six reported earlier Sunday that the “Cuff It” singer missed her first win of the night – for Best R&B Song – due to being stuck in heavy LA traffic.
The songstress also received a standing ovation from what appeared to be the entire crowd – including those who were seated at the very top of the venue – after crushing the record for most Grammy wins ever.
Celebs at the front of the stage immediately flocked to her side to give her hugs and tell her congratulations as she made her way down the stairs and back to her seat.
During commercial breaks, Page Six spotted plenty of celebs mingling, especially Machine Gun Kelly, who seemed to be everybody’s buddy.
The “Bloody Valentine” rocker was constantly out of his seat, chatting it up and saying hello to nearly every artist in the VIP crowd, including rap legend Jay-Z.
Meanwhile, the rocker’s fiancée, Megan Fox, stayed seated at the couple’s table for most of the show after revealing one night prior that she had broken her wrist and suffered from a concussion.
The actress did not share any further details about the incident on social media but appeared to be in good spirits at the Grammys with MGK. However, unlike their usual appearances at awards shows, the lovebirds didn’t show much PDA in the crowd.
One of the highlights of the evening was seeing famous exes Taylor Swift and Harry Styles reunite in public again. Page Six saw the two interacting a few times throughout the duration of the show and they appeared to be friendly and supportive of one another.
At one point, we spotted Swift – chic in a bedazzled Roberto Cavalli look – approach Styles’ table during a commercial break. The “Midnights” singer even patted Styles on the back, seemingly to tell him congratulations, before returning to her own seat next to producer Jack Antonoff.
And while Swift was a dancing diva all night long, we caught her pulling out her best awards show moves as Styles performed “As It Was” from his Grammy-winning “Harry’s House” album.
She jumped right out of her seat shortly after the song began and was the only one at her table standing up and vibing along to the catchy track.
