Grammys 2019 Red Carpet's Best And Wildest Looks

Maija Kappler

As awards shows go, the Grammys can be polarizing. Several big-name artists including Drake, Justin Bieber and Frank Ocean have questioned their relevance. Because, as we know, the Grammys have made some truly baffling choices — never forget that Macklemore (!) beat out Kendrick Lamar (!!) along with Drake, Jay-Z and Kanye West (!!!) for Best Rap Album in 2014.

This year's ceremony has already been marked by controversy, with Ariana Grande declining a performance after a fight with the producers and Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino reportedly turning down offers to perform. Still, this year's awards include a pretty stellar lineup of performers: Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Lady Gaga, Diana Ross and St. Vincent are just some of the musicians you'll be hearing from.

But of course, as we all know, the best part of any awards show is the outfits. This year's selection was largely confusing, with a lot of choices that are likely to provoke debate. Here are some of the night's most memorable red carpet looks.

Camila Cabello

Great colour! But a weird fit. But fun sparkles! But too long. Steve Granitz via Getty Images

Ben Harper

There's a lot going on here. Ben Harper seems to be channelling a fancy-but-stoic cowboy who takes fashion cues from small children.

Alessia Cara

We love you, Alessia Cara! But we don't love this amount of mesh. VALERIE MACON via Getty Images

Eve

Is her outfit kinda boring? Yes, maybe. But Eve looks incredible, with her sparkly jewellery and gold belt delicately offsetting her signature paw print tattoos. Rich Fury via Getty Images

Bebe Rexha

If a wedding cake became a piece of clothing. Lester Cohen via Getty Images

Weezer

Every member of Weezer is dressed like they're playing a drug dealer on "Miami Vice." Rich Fury via Getty Images

Daniel Caesar

The Toronto-based singer looks a tad underdressed, but we like that he matched his jacket to his shoes. Valerie Macon via Getty Images

Ricky Martin

Under other circumstances, we'd likely have something to say about Ricky Martin's mustache, but we're too distracted by how cute his 10-year-old son is!!! Jon Kopaloff via Getty Images

Leon Bridges

Where do you think he's from? It's hard to tell. Neilson Barnard via Getty Images

Jeannie Mai

Is that illusion netting or exposed flesh? How do you possibly wear a bra with this? What on Earth was she going for? These are just some of the hundreds of questions we have about this ensemble. VALERIE MACON via Getty Images

Lilly Singh

Sorry to be controversial, but ... jumpsuits are rarely a good idea. Kevin Mazur via Getty Images

Maren Morris and Meghan Trainor

Truly, what is happening? Why would Meghan Trainor attempt a pantsuit, and why does Maren Morris's otherwise pretty dress have a giant neon yellow growth on the shoulder? Neilson Barnard via Getty Images

Kacey Musgraves

Those colours are beautiful together, but that fan top looks very dangerous in a wardrobe malfunction kind of way. Jon Kopaloff via Getty Images

Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson

Ashlee Simpson's outfit looks like it started as a bodysuit, added legs, and sprouted feathers. Evan Ross appears to have forgotten his shirt. John Shearer via Getty Images

Heidi Klum

Is she trying to channel a bird? An angel? Someone whose laundry is stuck to their back due to static? Neilson Barnard via Getty Images

Janelle Monáe

JANELLE MONAE CAN DO NO WRONG and she's totally pulling this off. Steve Granitz via Getty Images

Miley Cyrus

Points for creativity? But deductions for the shoulders. Jon Kopaloff via Getty Images

Chloe x Halle

Halle, left, is 18, and her sister Chloe is 20. This photo makes us feel very old and out of touch. Kevin Mazur via Getty Images

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith is bringing the drama with this feathered train. Kevin Mazur via Getty Images

Ashanti

THAT IS A COMFORTER, ASHANTI. Kevin Mazur via Getty Images

Tracee Ellis Ross

Best of the night? This is wacky in a way that actually fits with Tracee Ellis Ross's persona, and she looks so comfortable and happy in this green pantsuit. Steve Granitz via Getty Images

Lady Gaga

Nice to have an armrest. Neilson Barnard via Getty Images

Offset and Cardi B

We will be talking about this vintage Mugler dress for YEARS. Thank you, Cardi. Jon Kopaloff via Getty Images

Katy Perry

What is this shape, and is this skirt made out of tea cozies? Steve Granitz via Getty Images

Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick had to skin a lot of muppets to make this dress happen. John Shearer via Getty Images

Jennifer Lopez

On the red carpet, J.Lo clocked an interviewer for knocking her hat, which was a total power move. VALERIE MACON via Getty Images

Kacey Musgraves

Does this outfit seem like it's missing pants to anyone else? Kevin Winter via Getty Images

Shaggy

Leave it to Shaggy to wear the most confusing garment of all time. Alberto E. Rodriguez via Getty Images

Kylie Jenner

😬😬😬 Jon Kopaloff via Getty Images

Anthony Kiedis and Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers

Are there a mess? Absolutely. Are they also kind of delightful? Yes. Rich Fury via Getty Images

Post Malone

One day your grandchildren will come across this picture and ask you to explain 2019. It might be worth trying to coming up with an answer ASAP. Jon Kopaloff via Getty Images

Diana Ross

THIS WOMAN IS A GODDESS! Look at this dress! And next time you're down, try your hardest to channel Diana Ross saying "Happy birthday to me!" We can definitely see where Tracee gets it. ROBYN BECK via Getty Images
