Last night's Grammys were certainly one of the best in recent memory—killer collabos, (mostly) spot-on award decisions and heartfelt tributes to lost musicians. But there were a few things that happened Sunday night which caught us totally off guard. Here are the 5 Biggest Surprises of the 2013 Grammys.

1. Mumford & Sons Take Best Album for Babel
No slur on Mumf, but seriously, who was expecting the British folk-rockers to beat out anticipated winners fun.? Or critical darling Frank Ocean. Or longtime Grammy fave Jack White. Definitely shocked us.

2. Prince Heartily Endorses Gotye
Prior to revealing Gotye and Kimbra won Record of the Year for "Somebody That I Used to Know," Prince doled out some rare, succinct praise: "Oh, I love this song." That's really worth more than the award itself.

3. Kelly Clarkson Adores "Sexy" Miguel, Hadn't Heard of Him Before
"Miguel, I don't know who the hell you are but we need to sing together," Clarkson said during her acceptance speech. "That was the sexiest I've ever seen." 1) Yes, it was sexy. 2) How have you not heard of Miguel before, KC? "Adorn" was No. 1 on the R&B Billboard Charts! 3) Please, get a collabo together ASAP. And maybe involving A$AP Rocky as well.

4. Katy Perry Slams Bon Iver
As a joke! But still, it was an unexpected and funny shoutout. Prior to announcing fun. as the winners of the Best New Artist Grammy, Katy offered this advice to the four losers: "If you don't win, don't worry. I was never even nominated and I have my own eyelash line. Take that, Bon Iver."

5. Tyrese Brought Vin Diesel to the Grammys
FF4Lyfe!!! The Grammy-nominated R&B singer brought his Fast & Furious 6 co-star to the 2013 Grammys because… well, this is what he told us: "After they yell cut, we're still cool," Tyrese said to Fuse News anchors Alexa & Matte. "I won't say he's my date. He's just my guy and he's never been to the Grammys." Vin explains further: "I don't get out much." Watch it here.
