The 2013 Grammy Awards was packed with star-studded performances last night including, Justin Timberlake’s highly anticipated return and Frank Ocean’s clever "Forrest Gump" set. Latinos dominated the stage as well and gave everyone something to talk about.

Miguel lived up to his hype with an electric performance of his smash hit, “Adorn.” Dominating the stage with help from rapper Wiz Khalifa, the Grammy Award-winning newbie’s live rendition romanced us and had us begging for an extended edition. Not to mention they were wearing similar black and white retro blazers. The Kaleidoscope Dream singer started his seductive set while playing the keyboard and soon danced towards the red-neon lit stage and filled the Staple Center with more versus dripping with amor. Miguel even turned Kelly Clarkson into a believer. “Miguel, I don’t know who the hell you are, but we have to record something together!” she shouted during her acceptance speech.

Later in the show, Bruno Mars shimmied and rocked his live set of “Locked Out of Heaven.” Jay-Z was even caught dancing to Bruno’s hit in the audience. After a few minutes of his set, Sting joined Mars for a rendition of “Walking on the Moon.” As the camera focused on Chris Brown in a white suit, Rihanna jumped on stage for a Bob Marley tribute and covered “Could You Be Loved,” which had everyone in the house swaying their hips.

Of course they saved one of the best for last! Juanes took the stage for a beautiful bilingual cover of Elton John's hit, "Your Song,” before introducing Frank Ocean’s performance. The Colombian singer also snagged the “Best Latin Pop Album, Rock or Urban Album" for his MTV Unplugged Deluxe Edition album earlier that evening. "Colombia this is for you, and for all my fans from all around the world. I love you too much," he said during his acceptance speech.

Watch some of the performances below and let us know what you think!
