Not surprisingly, at last night’s 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Kanye West made the evening all about Kanye West.

From the get-go, Kanye’s less-than-formal attire drew tons of attention. Yeezus certainly looked comfortable in what appeared to be a burgundy track suit, but at least he had on more clothes than wifey Kim Kardashian, who sported… a robe?

Is that Velour, Kanye? And is this 2005? One thing’s for sure, the rap star bore a striking resemblance to everybody’s favorite mobster:

Several performances helped remind the audience and viewers at home why Kanye is where he is today. The artist sang his new single “Only One” as well as “FourFiveSeconds” with Rihanna and Sir Paul McCartney. If you’ve ever wondered what Kim thinks of her husband’s artistry, look no further.

But the biggest Kanye shock of the night came when singer/songwriter Beck won Album of the Year over artists like Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, and, of course, Beyoncé. As you can see in the video above, Kanye quickly pretended to pull a Kanye la 2009 VMAs when he stormed the stage and denounced Taylor Swift’s Best Female Video (“You Belong With Me” is an amazing song/ music video, for the record), instead endorsing Beyoncé for “Single Ladies.” The “Imma Let You Finish” moment, as it is now and forever known, shocked many and will live in pop-culture history for years to come. Following Prince’s announcement of Beck’s win, Kanye briefly ran up on stage, to the enjoyment of Beck but to the sheer horror of the rest of us. Who was the most astonished of all? Why, none other than Jay-Z, as you can see from the reaction below:

Classic Kanye! But while he downplayed the stage-stealing moment as a joke, Yeezus went on to reveal that his reaction to Beck’s win was not just a stunt. In a never-ending crusade to uphold the integrity of art, Kanye ranted to cameras and hosts of the after party that he disagreed with the choice for Best Album, and that the award should have instead gone to Beyoncé (shocker). How did fans react to yet another Kanye rant?
