UPDATE: Grammy viewership was strong last night, with early ratings suggesting it scored one of the top largest three audiences for the show in the past 20 years. Almost 30 million viewers tuned in between 8 and 11 pm (but because the show went until nearly midnight, these first numbers are still incomplete). At the moment, this is about on par with last year's show.

UPDATE: Grammy viewership was strong last night, with early ratings suggesting it scored one of the top largest three audiences for the show in the past 20 years. Almost 30 million viewers tuned in between 8 and 11 pm (but because the show went until nearly midnight, these first numbers are still incomplete). At the moment, this is about on par with last year's show. 

2012's show still takes the ratings cake, which aired shortly after the death of Whitney Huston, and had almost 40 million viewers.

EARLIER: Check out some video highlights from the 2014 Grammy Awards, which rolled out on January 26. More than a few film stars made an appearance to cross-promote their Oscar films, including "American Hustle" star Jeremy Renner, as well as rocker and "Dallas Buyer's Club" star Jared Leto, Steve Coogan of "Philomena," Julia Roberts of "August: Osage County" and more. 

"Skyfall" is the 2012 film that keeps giving: Adele followed up her 2013 Oscar win for the "Skyfall" title song by nabbing Best Song Written for Visual Media, while composer Thomas Newman also won a Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media.

Director David Fincher scored a Grammy in the Best Music Video category for helming the black-and-white Justin Timberlake video "Suit and Tie." (He was, however, passed over by the DGA the previous night for his "House of Cards" pilot.)

Angelina Jolie's "Maleficent" revealed new sneak peek footage, set to Lana Del Rey's slinky rendition of "Sleeping Beauty" classic "Once Upon a Dream." (Check out that new trailer here.)

And while Pharell Williams' Daft Punk collaboration "Get Lucky" was the big winner of the night, he's Oscar nominated for "Happy" (from "Despicable Me 2"). 

A full list of the Grammy winners is here.
