While the gorgeous gowns and beauty looks at the Oscars, Golden Globes, and SAG Awards never fail to channel the ultimate definition of Hollywood glamour, the Grammys are arguably the edgiest ceremony of awards season---especially when we're talking manicures. Last year, Rita Ora's decked-out talons came out at the top of our wild nail art list, with a different pattern featured on each finger. Contrasting with the simple cut and metallic vibe of her Lanvin dress, the star's digits were lacquered up in the Batman logo, smiley faces, mini-mustaches against a reverse French pattern, and heart-shaped tips that mirrored Comme des Garcons' signature logo.

Ora wasn't the only one rocking a creative mani. To pregame for this year's festivities (and offer up some nail inspo to boot), we rounded up even more of the craziest manicure moments of Grammy awards shows past, including those on Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and of course, Rihanna.
