10 Best Grammy Awards Moments

Tonight's 3 and a half hour Grammy Award Ceremony was filled with a high quantity of mid to mid/high-quality moments. We have to focus on these quantities if we want to come away with a good picture of this incredible and mostly forgettable night of pretty good music. 

I've gathered here my preliminary estimates for a special report, which I am calling

The Grammys By The Numbys (or, The Grammers by the Numbers)

A carefully calculated list of the night's most nutrageous and salient moments.
