Beyoncé, Jay Z, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and more totally NAILED IT at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

What do these four have in common? A profesh diagnosis of chronic NAILING IT syndrome.

So, we already know that Daft Punk, Lorde, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were the big winners at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards. And, we’re all well aware of the already iconic performances that went down onstage, like Beyoncé and Jay Z’sDrunk And Love” and Taylor Swift’sAll Too Well.”

Yet, despite the approximately 4,177 categories up for grabs, there’s one group of Grammy attendees who haven’t received the recognition they truly deserve. And those are the people who NAILED. IT.

Did what at the Grammys? NAILED IT. Nailed what? IT. These are your faves who showed up, kicked ass, took names, and maybe even threw a goofy audience reaction shot into the mix for good measure. They stayed up late on a school night, got mass-married on live TV, and basically got pregnant right in front of Ariana Grande’s innocent little eyes.

And, all we gotta say is: WE SALUTE YOU. Our picks for the 15 people who nailed it at the Grammys are…

1.) Taylor Swift, the country-pop princess who managed to out-headbang Metallica.
