Pharrell Williams paid tribute to the #BlackLivesMatter movement during the Grammys on Sunday night. While performing his hit song "Happy," Pharrell and his dancers (many of whom wore hoodies) held up their hands, mirroring the "Hands Up Don't Shoot" protest.

Williams won three Grammy awards before taking the stage on Sunday: Best Pop Solo Performance for "Happy," Best Urban Contemporary Album for his album, "Girl" and Best Music Video for "Happy." He tied with Beyonce and Sam Smith for most Grammy nominations this year, with six each.
