Sure, you got to parties all the time. But trust us, you've never been, and probably never will be, at a blowout like music legend Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy gala. It's always the hottest ticket in Los Angeles the night before the Grammy Awards and this year was no different.

It had the usual assortment of amazing performances, including Lorde, A Great Big World, Creedence Clearwater Revival rock legend John Fogerty jamming with the Foo Fighters and Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly debuting a tribute to Nelson Mandela and Miley Cyrus opening things up by taking a shot at the glam audience when they didn't show enough appreciation for "Get It Right."

"I hope ya'll feel better than ya'll look," she said according to a report, before downshifting into a song she thought they might appreciate more, her iconic cover of Dolly Parton's "Jolene.""Robin Thicke brought out Pharrell and T.I., Imagine Dragons went unplugged, Fantasia drew howls of approval for her cover of "Stormy Weather" and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis killed during "Can't Hold Us" and "Thrift Shop."
