2014 Grammy Awards On Twitter: 15.2 Million Tweets Led By Lorde, Imagine Dragons [STATS]

Did you watch the 56th Grammy Awards? And were you talking about it on Twitter?

You’re not alone. Twitter was abuzz throughout the show, with appearances from Jay-Z and BeyoncĂ©, Madonna, Steve Wonder and others setting the social media sphere on fire. Indeed, Twitter saw some 15.2 million tweets during the awards, peaking at 171,593 tweets per minute (TPM) during the Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar performance.

Lorde also got Twitter talking, with her performance (146,083 TPM) and win for Best Pop Solo Performance (152,688 TPM) the third and second-most talked about events of the night, more than enough to make her the Grammy’s most popular artist on Twitter, ahead of BeyoncĂ© and Taylor Swift.

Not everyone was happy, though. When a closing performance between Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac was cut short by the show’s producers, Reznor took to Twitter to complain.
