Grammys 2018: Blue Ivy’s diva moment, Rihanna’s Wild meme & more highlights

Rihanna Grammys 2018

Rihanna pulled some fierce dance moves while performing Wild Thoughts at the Grammys 2018

The Grammys 2018 boasted a star-studded guest list including the likes of Cardi B, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars.

However all eyes were actually on Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy, who was reportedly the most-tweeted-about person of the whole night.

Blue Ivy’s diva moment

Power couple Beyonce, 36, and Jay-Z, 48, sat in the front row with their eldest daughter during the Sunday night ceremony, hosted at NYC’s Madison Square Garden.

In one comical moment fortunately caught on camera, Bey and Jay are seen graciously clapping while Camila Cabello presents on-stage but Blue Ivy was having none of the formalities and is seen telling her famous parents to stop clapping.

Needless to say, little Blue has become a viral hit with social media thoroughly enjoying the six-year-old’s precociousness.

Rihanna gets Wild

Rihanna shared the stage with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller for a rare performance of their monster 2017 hit, Wild Thoughts.

However, the standout moment comes from RiRi whose fierce facial expression while dancing has spawned the best meme of 2017 so far. Turns out, the 29-year-old was actually doing the Gwara Gwara, a traditional South African dance.

Bruno Mars’ surprise win

With eight nominations, many had predicted Jay-Z to take home the album of the year award for 4:44 or Kendrick Lamar for Damn. So it came as somewhat of a surprise when pop superstar Bruno Mars took the coveted accolade for his critically-acclaimed 24K Magic.

Fans are outraged with Jay-Z’s snub as the rapper didn’t win anything, walking away completely empty-handed in what is possibly the biggest Grammys shutout in history.

Cardi B

Yes, just everything about Cardi B was amazing last night. We knew it would be a good night when the rapper told an E! News reporter on the red carpet that she felt excited in her “stomach and vagina”.

Then there was her exquisite red carpet dress from Syrian designer Ashi Studio, a white angelic creation with pleats and ivory lace which gathers at the back to create the form of wings.

And lastly, the Bodak Yellow hitmaker hit the stage with Bruno Mars for a performance of their 90s throwback track, Finesse.

Alicia Keys make-up free

Some thought Keys, 37, would be over the make-up free movement in 2018 but they were wrong. The Fallin’ singer has won praise on social media for her confidence in going fresh-faced at a high-profile red carpet event – but she still looked beautiful. Keep rocking, Keys!

Hillary Clinton auditions for Fire & Fury

Of course, it wouldn’t be an awards show if politics weren’t mentioned somehow. James Corden hosted a hilarious skit where stars like Snoop Dogg, John Legend, Cher, Cardi B and DJ Khaled auditioned to narrate Fire & Fury, the controversial book exposing life in President Donald Trump’s White House.

But it was Hillary Clinton, Trump’s democratic rival, who had the last laugh. Yes, “Crooked Hillary” herself showed up at the end and won the part. No doubt Trump is in bed, seething with Twitter fingers at the ready and a cheeseburger at his side. How we laugh.
