The Diamonds girl won the night’s very first award, as “We Found Love” bagged the Grammy for Best Short Form Video, ahead of such notable competition as M.I.A. “Bad Girls” and the Throne’s “No Church in the Wild.”
A Grammy representative accepted the award, which brought Rihanna’s Academy wins to six, on behalf of the Unapologetic singer, who later brought the house down with two live performances.
The Rated R girl made the stage her own alongside Mikky Ekko performing “Stay” from her latest album, going on to collaborate with Bruno Mars, Sting, Ziggy and Damien “Junior Gong” Marley for a special tribute to reggae legend Bob Marley.
Rihanna was also nominated for two more awards in the Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration categories for “Where Have You Been” and “Talk That Talk,” but trailed Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain” and “No Church in the Wild” by Jay-Z & Kanye West, featuring Frank Ocean & The-Dream, respectively, in those categories.
Unlike last year, the honours were spread around evenly at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Record of the Year went to Gotye and Kimbra for “Somebody That I Used to Know,” Album of the Year went to Mumford & Sons for “Babel,” and Song of the Year went to Fun. for “We Are Young”.
Fun. also got the nod as the Best New Artist.
