Beyoncé and Jay Z opened the show with a steamy performance of their hit record “Drunk in Love.” This was Queen Bey’s first performance of the record since releasing her top-secret album in December. The 17-time Grammy winner stunned in a leotard and short wavy hair. Beyoncé, 32, lit the Grammy stage with her “surfboard” dance moves.
Katy Perry tweeted the song lyric after the couple’s performance.
Jay Z won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for his duet with pal Justin Timberlake for “Holy Grail.” When the rap mogul, 44, went to accept the award he gave the usual thanks to God and Beyoncé but also said he would be using his new trophy in a different way for his daughter Blue Ivy.
“I want to tell Blue that, ‘Look, Daddy got a gold sippy cup for you.’”
