The 2013 Grammy Awards brought show-stopping theatrics and vocals from Rihanna, fun., Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and more -- but there were plenty of highlights between performances, too. Relive the biggest, buzziest moments from the 2013 Grammys below.

1. Taylor Swift Slams Ex-Boyfriend Harry Styles in Opening Number 

Sounds like someone's got a message for Harry Styles! Taylor Swift opened up the 2013 Grammy Awards in L.A. with a white-and-red circus-themed performance of her hit "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" -- and a dig at her British boy-bander ex.

2. Rihanna, Chris Brown Cuddle in Audience

Time heals all wounds, apparently. Four years after Chris Brown's assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna before the 2009 Grammys, the on-again couple returned to the awards show together. After walking the red carpet separately, the singers reunited inside Staples Center, where they happily cuddled in the audience.

3. Jennifer Lopez Flashes Leg Like Angelina Jolie 

J. Lo pulled an Angie! Jennifer Lopez channeled glamour goddess Angelina Jolie, circa the 2012 Oscars, when she showed up at the 2013 Grammys in a stunning, thigh-baring gown that tested the limits of CBS's pre-Grammys dress code memo.
