1. NSYNC, who were up for Record of the Year for "Bye Bye Bye," showed up in suits that looked like they were made out of old sofa upholstery.

I think JC is actually wearing the fabric from my nana's old couch.

2. Nelly showed up without his trademark Band-Aid and wearing a whole Louis Vuitton suit that was probably designed by Pimp My Ride's West Coast Customs.


22. ...and later took home the Grammy for Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "Beautiful Day." And Bono probably called the Pope to celebrate the win.


23. Baha Men stood proud after winning the Best Dance Recording Grammy for "Who Let The Dogs Out."

Again, Baha Men WON a Grammy for "Who Let The Dogs Out." SMH.

27. Rage Against the Machine won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance, but lead singer Zack de la Rocha was too cool to show up, so he just sent his fellow bandmates to collect the award.

28. And finally, Destiny's Child posed in some Tina Knowles designed seaweed gowns, with their Grammy Awards for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, and Best R&B song for "Say My Name."
