The GRAMMYs are one of the more enjoyable award shows for famous people to attend given that it's mostly just sitting and listening to music for two and a half hours. But occasionally select attendees, like Taylor Swift and Yoko Ono, will forgo sitting in favor of dancing, and that's when things can get really awkward for everyone involved.

In addition to the rad performances and the actual awards that were handed out, the 2014 GRAMMYs also gifted us five solid awkward dancing moments. And thanks to Vine, we can watch them forever on a never-ending loop. Let's do it.

5. Beyonce Is Team Twerk

"Awkward" and "Beyonce" rarely find themselves in the same sentence, but when she started twerking during her sexed up performance of "Drunk in Love" with husband Jay Z, we were feeling just a little uncomfortable. Not so much "What is she doing!" uncomfortable, but more "I feel like this is none of my business!" uncomfortable. Save it for the surfboard?

4. Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Possibly Attempting the Dougie

We can't exactly blame Steven Tyler for getting down to Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder's performance of "Get Lucky" — everyone was doing it. But maybe it's time he update the Grease-inspired hand jive (or Dougie variation) for something from this millennium? Actually, never mind. That would be even worse.

3. Taylor Swift: G'd Up From The Feet Up

We had no idea Taylor Swift was such a huge Kendrick Lamar fan. No doubt he had one of the best (if not the best) performances of the night, and Taylor was loving every minute of it. We bet the people directly behind her felt the same way... if they could see the stage.

2. Yoko Ono's Pulp Fiction Homage

Where is Yoko Ono's home planet and how do I get there as fast as humanly (Yokoly?) possible?

1. Taylor Swift's Exorcism and/or Headbanging

"All Too Well" is one of the most heartbreaking tracks on Red (writes the girl who's listened to it over 300 times, check my iTunes). So it's no wonder Taylor got so into her performance of the song — really, really into it. Like, Excedrin Migraine levels of "into it."
