Here are our nine favorite moments from the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, GIF'd for the Daily Dot's Tumblr. 

In between awards, the Grammys' only purpose was to remind us that the band fun. still exists.

But it wasn't all bad! Kelly Clarkson won for best pop vocal album, Frank Ocean took home the best urban contemporary award, and Jay-Z and Kanye West were gifted with the rap/sung collaboration for "No Church in the Wild." They totally earned it.

Gotye and Kimbra (above) rightfully won for record of the year.

Also, LL Cool J repeatedly taught us what a hashtag was.
