Kanye West not only stole the show at the actual Grammys last night, with his two performances and pretend stage run up on Beck, but he also dominated Twitter during the show. According to the social network, 'Ye was the most-mentioned artist during the evening, with Sam Smith, who won four awards, and Beyoncé falling right behind Kanye. Ed Sheeran took over the fourth spot on the list, while Iggy Azalea, who went home empty-handed during the evening, rounded out the top five. Kanye also held the crown for the "Top Tweets Per Minute" category, for his impromptu semi-stage rush when Beck won album of the year over Beyoncé, which 'Ye later said he wasn't joking about.

5 Seconds of Summer accumulated the most retweets during the awards, as they raked in over 22,000 for a tweet that merely said, "Grammyz lol." The full Twitter recap can be found here.
