Hey Beyhive: You're not alone.

The majority of viewers who tuned in to the broadcast of the 57th annual Grammy Awards were nearly treated to another Kanye West outburst over a Beyoncé snub, as Beck's Morning Phase won over Queen Bey's opus for Album of the Year. Beck was thrilled, clearly, but the Internet? They weren't necessarily feeling the "loser, baby" narrative that played a key part in forming the foundation of his career.

Here's a look at some of the more passionate reactions that Bey's loss and Beck's gain elicited via Twitter shortly following the awarding of 2015's Album of the Year. #whoisbeck indeed.

First up: Yeah, we were holding our breath.
