Grammys 2014: Paul McCartney wins, Chicago performs

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Apparently Robert Lamm doesn't twerk?

In an odd pairing, Robin Thicke, who gave a very raunchy performance of "Blurred Lines" with Miley Cyrus at last year's Video Music Awards, appeared on stage with the popular '70s band Chicago to perform his hit and some of theirs. They sang a medley of songs that included "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?", sung by Chicago keyboardist Lamm.

That performance notwithstanding, the 56th annual Grammy Awards got underway on Sunday night with a succession of sexy musical performances.

Power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z kicked off the night, singing their new hit, “Drunk in Love.” Beyonce began the show by wriggling around on a chair before she was joined by Jay-Z.

Later, Katy Perry took the stage in a glowing bra-top as she danced across a smoke-covered stage and performer her hit “Dark Horse.”

Newly popular artist Lorde had a more subdued performance of her hit “Royals,” but as she finished singing, some users took to Twitter to charge that the 17-year-old may have been lip synching.

“Looked like Lorde was definitely lip syncing,” one user wrote. “Now Lorde is ruined for me bc now I know she's lip syncing,” another tweeted."

Host LL Cool J brought the humor to the Grammys, using his introduction to make jokes about his little-known, long ago musical successes. He then praised artists like Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Bruno Mars for their musical accomplishments.

Dave Grohl, Paul McCartney, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear won the award for Best Rock song, with “Cut Me Some Slack.”

Daft Punk, Pharrell Willams and Nile Rogers beat out some stiff competition to take home the award for Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance. Producer extraordinaire Pharrell took the microphone to accept the award on behalf of Daft Punk, who appeared on stage in their signature helmets, making it impossible to see their faces.

Rap duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took home the first award of the night, scoring the Best New Artist prize.

Earlier in the evening, the red carpet opened with a crush of people ahead of the show, as most of the nominees in the less mainstream categories vied for camera time before the big stars flooded in.

Many eyes were on remaining Beatles, Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney, who are both set perform during the telecast. This year, the duo celebrates the 50th anniversary of their legendary Ed Sullivan performance.

"I love it because you see a lot of people that you'll never see anywhere else and you'll see a lot of old friends," Starr said.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
