This year's opening number was helmed by host Neil Patrick Harris and featured appearances from Anna Kendrick, Jack Black and a phalanx of Stormtroopers and centurions.
"Everything is Awesome," by Tegan & Sara and the Lonely Island, was handled with a "more is more" philosophy, leading to a visual overload on par with The Lego Movie itself.
If social media last night was to be believed, no one had any idea that Lady Gaga could actually sing until this medley of songs from The Sound of Music, which touched on the opening song, "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain."
Common and John Legend performed the Oscar-winning "Glory" from Selma with help from some elaborate set pieces.
Maroon 5 performed "Lost Stars" from Begin Again, which also starred frontman Adam Levine.
Jennifer Hudson accompanied the annual "in memoriam" montage with a version of "I Can't Let Go."
Tim McGraw tipped his hat to the legendary Glen Campbell with "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" from the I'll Be Me soundtrack
Rita Ora sang "Grateful" from Beyond the Lights.
