Sure, the Grammys stage gets the big flashy performances and nail-biting award presentations, but everyone knows the real party takes place behind the stage curtain.

On Sunday (January 28), some of the biggest names in music were caught on camera backstage interacting with each other, giving hugs and exchanging "hellos" or, in Rita Ora's case, excited screams.

Bruno Mars, who swept the Grammys by storm (literally—he won six of the categories he was nominated for), enjoyed a couple of laughs before hitting the stage, even managing to take a snap with Sting. Meanwhile, co-performer Cardi B continued to live her best life while posing for pictures in her "Finesse" costume.

Elsewhere, host James Corden was caught exchanging some laughs with Hailee Steinfeld, Katie Holmes and Kendrick Lamar, while Camila Cabello and Rihanna were seen taking photos with some guests.
