Grammy Weekend 2014: Go Behind the Scenes with PEOPLE

From Colbie Caillat's private performance at our PEOPLE party, to Lady Gaga's mindblowing Carole King cover at MusiCares, here's what you didn't see this weekend

  1. My Grammy tickets arrived to the office on Friday. Yep, I was pretty excited.
  2. I was beyond thrilled when my pals at my favorite application Spotify asked me to attend MusiCares on Friday (which is the biggest event of the night) as their personal guest. I had so much fun with Angela and Maureen (pictured) and many others from their team. We kicked off the night at Sunset Tower hotel in West Hollywood, and after a few glasses of champagne, we had a car drive us downtown to the LA Convention Center for the big night.   
  3. Each year a different icon in the industry is honored at MusiCares. This year, it was the legendary Carole King, whose songs were covered at the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted event by everyone from Steven Tyler and LeAnn Rimes, to Pink, to two of my childhood favorites, Amy Grant and Gloria Estefan

  5. Say what you want about @LadyGaga, but one thing holds true: she has an amazing voice! Even Carole King was impressed ;). Last night was so amazing. Thank you @Spotify for making me your personal guest at such a fantastic event. #latergram #MusiCares
  6. There were so many people at MusiCares that I didn't even get a chance to see my best friend from high school who happened to be there as well! But somehow in the thick of the crowd, Maureen managed to find many of the VIP guests who she knows from working in the music industry and gave me personal introductions to Steven Tyler, LeAnn Rimes and Jimmy Kimmel. Everyone was friendly and seemed in a great mood!
  7. Still mesmerized over last night's @MusiCares event. Clearly we aren't the only ones. Look at everyone standing in awe. #latergram

  9. BFF bonding day. One final festive hurrah before we are off to our next destination. #OnlyInLouisiana… http://t.co/RfAc506Ak3

  10. It wouldn't be a proper awards weekend without a little hair care at Sally Hershberger salon in West Hollywood. My favorite colorist, Erick Orellana, who has done hair for Audrina Patridge and Catherine Giudici, did the works for my hair with several deep conditionings and some color. I was a little nervous about the highlights, but I ended up being so happy with the results. Next, Sam Divine gave me an amazing blowout with a crown braid just like I wanted. Now I was really ready for the night's PEOPLE party!

  12. I had such a blast with my coworkers at PEOPLE's annual pre-Grammy party which was at Sayers Club in Hollywood. The drinks were flowing and the guests were dancing. Definitely a night not to be missed!  
  13. AMEN!
  14. Of course the talent was great at our party last night, but nothing truly says party like food :) #yum #grammys

  15. I loved the song "Charlene" when I was in college. It was really great to hear it live!  
  16. We still can't get over the incredible talent from our pre-Grammy party last night. @AnthonyHamiltonOfficial, you're awesome!
  17. Colbie has such a beautiful and calming voice. She looked radiant! Gavin DeGraw and Tamar Braxton also performed for the intimate crowd at our party
