The 2017 Grammys may have been full of total joys — like Chance the Rapper’s exuberant performance — and it may have been full of heartbreaks — seriously, how did Beyoncé not win Best Album? — but for those in the audience, it was a bit of a slog. At one point, host James Corden even pointed out that everyone was sitting on cheap folding chairs. Yikes.
But just when you thought all hope was lost, in comes Rihanna, who saved the 2017 Grammys by having the best time ever. She looked effortlessly beautiful. She drank out of a diamond-encrusted flask. She may have even FaceTimed a friend during the evening’s big fun. Here are some of the best moments.
When Rihanna thought taking another shot was in order
It’s a party. Why shouldn’t she take a shot?
There was some spicy side-eye during Corden’s Carpool Karaoke moment
Did you happen to see her staring down the camera while she snuck her flask back into her bag?
Rihanna totally feeling the performance & jamming along with it
I think this was when A Tribe Called Quest was absolutely schooling us all, but I can’t quite tell.
Rihanna blew a kiss to Beyoncé because of course she did
One queen makes sure to show love to another during a long night of getting properly rewarded. Seems fair.
Who was Rihanna FaceTiming?
RiRi managed to squeeze in a casual FaceTime during A Tribe Called Quest’s performance. Is this is even happening? She is too perfect.
Rihanna’s flask was amazing
Let’s just be real: That diamond flask was the best date any girl or guy brought to that shindig.
Did you see Rihanna invent walking at the Grammys?
To be fair, she doesn’t walk; she glides.
