At last night’s Grammy Awards, Chance the Rapper became a household name.

The 23-year-old artist from Chicago took home three trophies, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album, and performed “All We Got” with Kirk Franklin and a gospel choir.

A Tribe Called Quest made the most of its time on stage, bringing out Anderson Paak and Busta Rhymes, and making a political statement with a performance of “We the People.”

And of course, who can forget Beyonce. Even though Queen Bey didn’t win big, her presence was felt with an elaborate spoken-word musical performance featuring over a dozen dancers — plus a special shout-out from the Record of the Year winner Adele.

Other highlights from Music’s Biggest Night included:

  • Chance the Rapper won his first-ever Grammy for “No Problem.” He was so excited he accidentally said a four-letter word when accepting the award for Best Rap Performance during the pre-show.
  • While Rihanna didn’t win any awards, she was still front and center at the awards, sipping from a bedazzled silver flask.
  • Schoolboy Q showed up to the ceremony with his daughter. She wore a pink Gucci suit while he rocked a pink hoodie with the words “Girl Power.”
  • Joy Villa got a lot of attention for her “Make America Great Again” dress.
  • Adele won the Album of the Year award and used her time on stage to recognize Beyonce’s Lemonade.
