Grammys: Facebook Goes Bonkers for Gaga, Twitter Flips Over Ed Sheeran

On social media, Kendrick Lamar’s performance also ranks high among most-discussed Grammys moments

Social networks were buzzing about the Grammy Awards broadcast on CBS, but the most-discussed moments differed depending which site you were on.

Facebook said Lady Gaga‘s tribute to late rock icon David Bowie was the most talked-about moment in the U.S. On Twitter, however, Ed Sheeran’s win for Song of the Year generated the most tweets.

Though Gaga was absent from Twitter’s top rankings and Sheeran made no showing in Facebook’s, the users of both networks agreed on something: Kendrick Lamar. His performance of songs off “To Pimp a Butterfly,” which won Best Rap Album, was the No. 2 moment on both lists.

Rounding out Facebook’s top five moments were the tribute to Lionel Richie, followed by the performances by Chris Stapleton and Justin Bieber. The company said that 21 million people generated more than 50 million interactions, such as posts, likes and comments, on Facebook related to Grammys Monday.

The most viewed video on Facebook was the Grammys’ official red carpet feed.
