Lady Gaga’s tribute to the late David Bowie was the most-talked-about moment on Facebook during the 58th Annual Grammy Awards Monday night.

Facebook said in an email to SocialTimes that the five most-talked-about moments on Facebook during the telecast were:

  1. Lady Gaga pays tribute to the late David Bowie.
  2. Kendrick Lamar performs.
  3. Lionel Richie tribute and performance.
  4. Chris Stapleton performs.
  5. Justin Bieber performs.

Facebook also found that its pre-Grammy Awards sentiment data analysis was spot-on, as the largest percentage of positive conversations in the “Record of the Year” category went to “Uptown Funk,” by Mark Ronson and featuring Bruno Mars, while the same was true for To Pimp a Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar in the “Rap Album of the Year” category. Both took home their respective statues.

More than 780 million Facebook users are connected to music-related pages, according to the social network.
