This year's Grammys ceremony has been branded "lackluster", "boring", and "unoriginal" by Tweeters, after performances by Justin Bieber, James Bay and Gwen Stafani failed to impress viewers.

The stellar acts were few and far between, with only Kendrick Lamar's jazz-infused renditions of "Blacker the Berry" and "Alright" as well as Lady Gaga's tribute to David Bowie standing out.

Oh, and then there was also Taylor Swift's new haircut, which for some reason has been making headlines. Plus, she fuelled her feud with Kanye West again, who himself was Tweeting during the ceremony.

None of this, however, managed to win over some viewers, who remained unimpressed for the majority of the three-and-a-half hour ceremony which mainly consisted of rich people handing other rich people golden trophies.

There are a number of reasons why the show may not have gone as well as planned, including a no-show from Rihanna, Adele's performance being hit by technical faults and the ceremony ending with Pitbull.
