Early in the telecast, broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences’ 55th annual presentation, Elton John performed, Ellen DeGeneres made a show of ogling co-presenter Beyonce and Neil Patrick Harris quoted Katharine Hepburn in witty opening remarks.

The gay star of the night, though, was hip-hop newcomer Frank Ocean who won Grammys in the new category Best Urban Contemporary Album for his 2012 project “Channel Orange” and, in a joint award with Kanye West and Jay-Z, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “No Church in the Wild.” He was nominated in four other categories.

Melissa Etheridge, with hair raked back in a severe ponytail, was briefly seen in the audience a couple times. DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi were seen several times. Ellen, especially, was majorly getting down during the Bob Marley tribute.
