Biggest Nail-Biter:  Did Amy Winehouse's twitchy stage moves and odd delivery unnerve the London crew taping her performance? They kept cutting away to the dancers, the band, a sign with her name on it and then, well, her crotch. Forget Wino, we're just glad the camera crew made it through okay.

Best Comeback:  Is it too early for Amy Winehouse to make a comeback? Probably, but it was sure nice that she pulled off not just a performance but also a speech. Let's hope she gets better.

Best Freestyle:  As Rihanna began to joke about how she wasn't sure she was going to share her trophy with her dad, Jay-Z leaned in all cool and composed and began to rewrite her speech for her: "She said she wanted to thank everybody for her first Grammy... "

The Song Goodbye:  From Hank Thompson and Joe Zawinul to Oscar Peterson and Luciano Pavarotti, the music world lost some amazing people this year.
