Grammys 2015: From Sam Smith To Taylor Swift And Madonna, All The Backstage Photos (PICS)

On Sunday evening, shortly after the stars of the big screen filed into London’s Royal Opera House for the Baftas, it was time to cast our eyes across the pond, where the Grammys were kicking off in their own unique style.

Luckily, the stars of the music world are just as human as us, and within minutes, many of these snaps made it online.

Take a look at all the behind-the-scenes snaps below…
