Chrissy Teigen & John Legend Skipped the Grammys

Leave it to Chrissy Teigen and John Legend to host a Grammy party celebrating the 61st Grammys Awards that was super low-key, but also beyond epic. The celebrity couple chose to chill at home for the evening, rather than get all dolled up and attend the actual event.

At first, their viewing party might not sound as exciting as being at the big night, but once you see footage from it, you’ll probably wish you watched the major music awards show with them — and their famous friends.

Early on Sunday, Feb. 10, Teigen announced they wouldn’t be at the Grammys. As you can see below, she tweeted a photo of her husband sleeping on the couch. Better yet, the Cravings: Hungry For More cookbook author hilariously captioned the image, “no Grammys for us today. john got and [SIC] EGOT and egot lazy.”

How good is that? She was beyond happy with herself, as Teigen replied to her own tweet, “I’m so proud of this.” As she should be, especially since she found a way to mention Legend’s EGOT-status and call him “lazy” at the same time.

Don’t worry, their evening didn’t consist of Legend sleeping. Not only did Teigen give “not-going-to-the-grammys makeup tutorials” on her Instagram Story (as you can see below), but they watched the Grammys like many of us did — from the comfort of their own home.

That said, Teigen and The Voice coach did happen to invite a few famous individuals over to their Los Angeles pad to hang out, like celebrities do.

Just who did they have over? It was quite an interesting group, and one you might not expect from the couple. And, no, their guest list didn’t include New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. However, they did invite Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita, The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil and comedian/writer Neal Brennan (Chapelle’s Show).

Thank goodness Teigen, aka the “unofficial mayor of Twitter,” shared the unforgettable Grammys home-viewing party on Twitter and Instagram. Though, at one point, she recognized that maybe she needed to be stopped. As Teigen tweeted, “john gotta take my phone.”

Good thing that didn’t happen, because then fans wouldn’t have seen Ferguson adorably dancing with baby Miles.

Or the amazing cake Twitter gifted Teigen.

Or Brennan explaining what he hates the most about musicians.

Or Ferguson “eating out of a toilet.”

Or Jamil going straight from the Grammys (yes, she attended with her boyfriend James Blake) to Teigen and Legend’s home to drink some tea and help her friend with her hiccups. BTW, who knew these two were so close? We are so here for this friendship.

Let’s all thank Teigen for capturing what turned out to be a memorable evening. Even when Teigen and Legend are just being average people watching an awards show from home, they still somehow turn a mundane act into something so spectacular and entertaining.
