We’ll admit it—the majority of the OKMagazine.com editorial staff wasn’t as excited for the GRAMMY Awards this year as we were for other awards shows. Point blank period. But then, Beyonce and Jay Z, who were rumored to both be performing at tonight’s show, just opened the whole darn thing, singing “Drunk In Love” live in front of the world. And it was almost more momentous than that time that Beyonce announced her pregnancy live on stage at the 2011 MTV VMAs…
“Drunk in Love” is their duet off B’s latest album, Beyonce, and people were suspecting that if the husband and wife did in fact perform together at the show, this song would be it. Because let’s be real, as amazing as their other collaborations “Crazy in Love” and “Bonnie & Clyde” are, “Drunk in Love” is relevant and amazing and marks the first time that Beyonce performed her new material on TV. Yup, epic on so many levels.
Watch the video below—Bey and Jay got pretty PDA all up on that #surfboard!—and stay tuned to OKMagazine.com for tons more GRAMMYS news as it happens!
UPDATE: Later in the show when Beyonce and Jay were up for an award together for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, they were beyond adorable when the camera panned to them, lookin’ all cuddly and cute. Then, when Jay won the award for “Holy Grail” with Justin Timberlake, he thanked God for bringing “that beautiful lady” into his life, and then said “Blue, Daddy got a gold sippy cup for you.” BRB, dead.
What’d you think of their performance? Was this more exciting than the *NSYNC reunion at the VMAs? Tweet us @OKMagazin
