Adele ended her night at the 2017 Grammy Awards with back-to-back wins for album of the year and record of the year, but used her final moments on stage to salute Beyoncé and her "monumental" album "Lemonade." Beyoncé, meanwhile, wowed the audience with a spiritual performance and also took home the prize for urban contemporary album. Chance the Rapper was also among the top winners of the night, taking the prize for new artist as well as rap album.

Why did Twenty One Pilots take off their pants? They turned back time, to the good old days

By the time Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots accepted their pop duo/group performance Grammy for "Stressed Out," they were no longer wearing pants.

Turns out they had a pact where they would turn back time, to the good old days, before they were making money playing music.

Joseph explained: Back in the day, he and Dun and some other guys got together to watch the Grammys, and somewhere along the line they noticed that they were all in their underwear.

"And seriously," Joseph said, "Josh turned to me -- and we were no one at that time -- and he said, 'If we ever go to the Grammys, if we ever win a Grammy, we should receive it just like this."

James Corden followed it up by stripping down to his underwear to introduce Ed Sheeran.
