Love is in the air!
Although the pair skipped the red carpet on Sunday night, there were plenty of pics snapped of the two as Gwen sat on her man's lap throughout the evening.
The lovebirds kissed and danced all night before leaving through the back just before midnight.
Other A-listers at the event included Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Avril Lavigne, Barry Manilow and both Harry Styles and his former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik. No word yet if there was a Harry-Zayn bump in.
We can't wait for more sightings tonight for the big show!

UPDATE 12:19 P.M. EST: Good news! It looks like Mr. Manilow's most recent hospital visit was a success. His rep recently confirmed:
"Barry is out of surgery and doing well. His Doctors report that the surgery was successful and they expect no further complications. For the next forty eight hours, Manilow has been instructed not to talk, sing, or rap.
Barry thanks everyone for their well wishes and concern."
Just know we're thinking about you, Barry!
Earlier this week, Barry Manilow was rushed to the hospital following complications from oral surgery he had done only a handful of days ago. Yikes!
It's said that the Mandy singer was able to perform at his sold out Memphis, TN concert but had to rush back to El Lay for medical attention. The 72-year-old's team took to Facebook on Thursday to confirm that a few of his concerts would have to be rescheduled.
But what about the hitmaker's performance at the Grammys?? They wrote:
Barry Manilow is quite the catchy songwriter, but crafting such jingles requires a glamorous muse for inspiration!
Enter Scarlett Johansson!
The Hail, Caeser! actress and the Copacabana singer made a pitch perfect pair in a holiday jingle written in support of Bono's (RED) campaign!
At the request of Jimmy Kimmel, Manilow penned a song for a huge holiday shopathon where all the proceeds go towards eradicating AIDS!
Even though the music legend changes his mind on a few lyrics throughout the song, ScarJo sings the tune with peppy perfection!
Ch-ch-check out the festive jingle (below) and CLICK HERE to find out more about the (RED) Shopathon!
Never have we been happier over two people saying "I do."
According to sources, Barry Manilow, and his manager of many years, Garry Kief, wed last year in an private ceremony.
Barry married Garry?! Excellent!
Here's what one friend of the couple said about the surprise wedding that took place at Manilow's Palm Springs, after telling "20 to 30 guests" that they'd be attending a lunch:
And we don't mean the match-maker played by Will Smith!
The two legendary entertainers apparently HATE each other!
See, Barry started out as Bette's piano man, but the Mandy singer quickly escaped his humble beginnings and — with 80 million album sales beneath his belt — eventually outsold his former boss!
Bette didn't waste away by the wayside, but she apparently holds a grudge!
The Wind Beneath My Wings songstress wouldn't even attend his Manilow on Broadway opening!
Aww! We love Bette & Barry more than we love oxygen and chocolate milk, but the Tonys are bigger than these two stage legends!
We will not have them sullied!
Get it together, you two! The world is counting on you!
The show must go on!

Aww, we're sad to hear that Barry Manilow has to go in for surgery Monday!
The singer will be entering an El Lay hospital to repair torn abductor muscles and the removal of bursas in both hips.
Then he'll be in recovery for SIX weeks! Bummer!!!
But thankfully, he'll be able to get back on the stage after he's all well and better. The Chicago Theater will have him Feb. 2-4 and Radio City Music Hall gets him February 10-14!
He's got a great attitude about it all though. He says:
He writes the songs that make the whole world sing and young girls cry and so on and so forth, so… get excited!!!
Barry Manilow just announced that on June 14th, he'll be releasing his first original album in 10 years. Titled 15 Minutes, the album has 15 brand new tracks that were written and recorded over the past two years with help from lyricist Enoch Anderson. Of the album, Barry reveals:
"Fame and success are something we all strive for, and yet when we get it how do we behave? That question jumps out at us daily from magazine covers, TV news and online gossip sites. In my world of entertainment, I've watched perfectly decent and talented people achieve the success they've been striving for only to crash and burn as their star rises. … It's something that continues to fascinate us, and for me it represented an interesting musical journey to explore."
Sounds fun! We're thrilled to hear what you have in store for us, Barry.
Oh, and for those Fanilows out there who think waiting until June is just too much to bear, fear not! Barry is scheduled to debut the album on a QVC Presents Q Sessions Live broadcast on May 26 at 8pm. Barry will sing a few a of the songs on the disc as well as present a special offer for the album only to QVC customers.
Because that is the way Manilow roooooolls!
