Collaboration: M.I.A., T.I., Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne
Best Moment: Remember when a third-trimester M.I.A. showed up to the Grammys in a sheer Henry Holland dress? Then remember how she ran around on stage like her water wasn't about to break any minute? Oh yeah, and then remember how the curtains opened and Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West came out and cut together "Paper Planes" and "Swagga Like Us"? Yeah, that was pretty special.

Collaboration: "Lady Marmalade" by Mya, P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, and Missy Elliott
Best Moment: Honestly? All of it. There weren't any wrong notes, botched runs, or wardrobe malfunctions, because this was a mash-up of divas who know how to put on a show. Oh right...and then the original "Lady Marmalade" singer, Patti LaBelle, showed up at the end and blew everyone out of the effing water.
