Bow Down, because Beyoncé and Jay-Z are in the building.
After many speculated that the power couple would sit out the Grammy Awards, despite Beyoncé leading the field with nine nominations, the duo defied all odds and made a surprise appearance Sunday.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z looked regal in black and gold, matching the rapper’s signature Armand de Brignac champagne bottle they brought to their socially distanced table at at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Even Beyoncé’s “Savage” collaborator Megan Thee Stallionwas shocked to see her.
Megan Thee Stallion, who earlier in the night became the first female rapper to win the prestigious best new artist honor since Lauryn Hill in 1999, gasped in disbelief as Beyoncé headed to the stage with her to accept best rap song for their hit. (“Savage” also won a Grammy for best rap performance earlier in the night.)

“First of all…” Megan Thee Stallion said, while pointing out the glamorous elephant out in the room. “Beyoncé done came up here, really?”
Megan Thee Stallion continued: “I definitely want to say thank you to Beyoncé. If you know me, you have to know that ever since I was little, I was like… “One day I’m going to grow up and be like the rap Beyoncé.”
Megan Thee Stallion credited her fellow Houston native with inspiring her to pursue music, adding that she frequently thinks, “What would Beyoncé do but make it a little ratchet.”

The feeling is mutual. Beyoncé said she’s so “proud” of Megan Thee Stallion, adding, “I have so much respect for you and I’m honored that you asked me to be apart of this song.”
Although Beyoncé joined Megan Thee Stallion on stage to accept their Grammy, the most-nominated female artist in Grammy history didn’t share the stage with Megan Thee Stallion, who performed “Body,” “Savage” and “WAP” with Cardi B.
