2014 were the Grammys of our Lorde. You know, the Lorde of “Royals” and “Team” fame? While the 18-year-old singer songwriter was the star of last year's show the actual overall star power of those who attended was, frankly, so-so. Not in 2015.
Lorde is back in New Zealand and skipping this year's Grammy Awards.
wishing all my buds a GREAT grammys tonight from 7000 miles away ?????????????????

This might have been the year, however, that she actually checked out the show just for fun (her buddy Taylor does it all the time!). Sure, Adele, Carrie Underwood, J-Lo, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Shakira aren't in the house, but basically every other major female pop star of the 21st Century is. (And, no, Britney doesn't count.)
Don't believe us? Check out the embedded gallery below and gawk at the lovely ladies as they strut their stuff on the Grammys red carpet.
