Grammys 2019 Red Carpet's Best And Wildest Looks

We're constantly waiting for an outfit as iconic as J.Lo's 2000 Grammys dress.

As awards shows go, the Grammys can be polarizing. Several big-name artists including Drake, Justin Bieber and Frank Ocean have questioned their relevance. Because, as we know, the Grammys have made some truly baffling choices — never forget that Macklemore (!) beat out Kendrick Lamar (!!) along with Drake, Jay-Z and Kanye West (!!!) for Best Rap Album in 2014.

This year's ceremony has already been marked by controversy, with Ariana Grande declining a performance after a fight with the producers and Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino reportedly turning down offers to perform. Still, this year's awards include a pretty stellar lineup of performers: Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Lady Gaga, Diana Ross and St. Vincent are just some of the musicians you'll be hearing from.

But of course, as we all know, the best part of any awards show is the outfits. This year's selection was largely confusing, with a lot of choices that are likely to provoke debate. Here are some of the night's most memorable red carpet looks.

    Great colour! But a weird fit. But fun sparkles! But too long.

    There's a lot going on here. Ben Harper seems to be channelling a fancy-but-stoic cowboy who takes fashion cues from small children.

    We love you, Alessia Cara! But we don't love this amount of mesh.
  • Eve

    Is her outfit kinda boring? Yes, maybe. But Eve looks incredible, with her sparkly jewellery and gold belt delicately offsetting her signature paw print tattoos.
  • Bebe Rexha

    If a wedding cake became a piece of clothing.
  • Weezer

    Every member of Weezer is dressed like they're playing a drug dealer on "Miami Vice."
  • Daniel Caesar

    The Toronto-based singer looks a tad underdressed, but we like that he matched his jacket to his shoes.
  • Ricky Martin

    Under other circumstances, we'd likely have something to say about Ricky Martin's mustache, but we're too distracted by how cute his 10-year-old son is!!!
  • Leon Bridges

    Where do you think he's from? It's hard to tell.
  • Jeannie Mai

    Is that illusion netting or exposed flesh? How do you possibly wear a bra with this? What on Earth was she going for? These are just some of the hundreds of questions we have about this ensemble.
  • Lilly Singh

    Sorry to be controversial, but ... jumpsuits are rarely a good idea.
  • Maren Morris and Meghan Trainor

    Truly, what is happening? Why would Meghan Trainor attempt a pantsuit, and why does Maren Morris's otherwise pretty dress have a giant neon yellow growth on the shoulder?
  • Kacey Musgraves

    Those colours are beautiful together, but that fan top looks very dangerous in a wardrobe malfunction kind of way.
  • Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson

    Ashlee Simpson's outfit looks like it started as a bodysuit, added legs, and sprouted feathers. Evan Ross appears to have forgotten his shirt.
  • Heidi Klum

    Is she trying to channel a bird? An angel? Someone whose laundry is stuck to their back due to static?
  • Janelle Monáe

    JANELLE MONAE CAN DO NO WRONG and she's totally pulling this off.
  • Miley Cyrus

    Points for creativity? But deductions for the shoulders.

    Best of the night? This is wacky in a way that actually fits with Tracee Ellis Ross's persona, and she looks so comfortable and happy in this green pantsuit.
  • Lady Gaga

    Nice to have an armrest.

    We will be talking about this vintage Mugler dress for YEARS. Thank you, Cardi.

    What is this shape, and is this skirt made out of tea cozies?
  • Anna Kendrick

    Anna Kendrick had to skin a lot of muppets to make this dress happen.
  • Jennifer Lopez

    On the red carpet, J.Lo clocked an interviewer for knocking her hat, which was a total power move.
  • Kacey Musgraves

    Does this outfit seem like it's missing pants to anyone else?
  • Shaggy

    Leave it to Shaggy to wear the most confusing garment of all time.

    Are there a mess? Absolutely. Are they also kind of delightful? Yes.

    One day your grandchildren will come across this picture and ask you to explain 2019. It might be worth trying to coming up with an answer ASAP.
  • Diana Ross

    THIS WOMAN IS A GODDESS! Look at this dress! And next time you're down, try your hardest to channel Diana Ross saying "Happy birthday to me!" We can definitely see where Tracee gets it.
