There's a quote that goes along the lines; 'If Rihanna's featured in it, It's Rihanna's song.'

The same was true when the Bajan icon took to the stage to perform Wild Thoughts with Dj Khaled and Bryson Tiller. As always, she just about stole the whole show when she nailed the choreography, which included the now viral bits of gwara gwara dance. If you weren't aware, the Durban dance was popularised Dj Bongz. That's one for South Africa influencing global pop culture!

But what's a good show without a bit of a plot twist. Although Beyoncè and Jay Z are the music industry's unrivaled power couple; it's their daughter Blue Ivy who was captured calling the shots. In an adorable, and now inevitably viral moment, the music heiress is seen stopping mom and dad from clapping! 

Bruno takes it to Mars!

While everyone took turns refining their own interpretation of the current trap wave, Bruno Mars stuck to his guns and delivered more Mo'town funk inspired modern-day throwback bops. His authentic groove was rewarded big time at this year's Grammys as he walked away with no less than six gongs; including Song of The Year and Album of The Year. So, well, deserved!

Between Bruno Mars and Kendrick, everyone else had to hope for whatever trophy was left. One of the night's performers, Kendrick Lamar scooped five awards. As far as the current Hip Hop landscape is concerned, this makes him the biggest rapper on earth. Also, his performance is one of the most talked about on social media.
