It is a three hour ceremony, so it's only natural Rihanna needed some refreshments during the Grammys .

But to swig shots openly from a jewel encrusted hip-flask -well, this is why the 28-year-old Diamonds singer is actually our hero.

While most celebrities hide their booze buckets under their seats, only sipping during ad breaks - Rihanna was openly swigging from her hip flask and was even spotted telling her pal it was time for another shot.

Again, HERO.

Although she scooped zero awards - despite being up for a whopping eight gongs - the starlet wasn't fazed and looked like she was having the time of her life.

Dressed in a burnt orange midriff baring tip with full layered black skirt, Rihanna looked every inch the superstar.

Fans took to Twitter to complain about the Work singer being snubbed, with one furious fan claiming it was a fix.

Another wrote: "Can we talk about our other Queen Rihanna getting snubbed of ALL 8 nominations........... ridiculous."

Beyonce, who won two awards, was the other star of the show - although as the pregnant star took to the stage at the Grammy Awards - it was daughter Blue Ivy Carter that stole the show. 

The five-year-old melted hearts as she was spotted gazing adoringly at her mum and clapping as the singer accepted the award for best urban contemporary album.

Host James Corden followed Beyonce's visually stunning performance at the Staples Center with a special Grammys ' Carpool Karaoke ' which Blue crashed in style.

Corden stepped into a giant cardboard cutout of a compact car as he gathered Jennifer Lopez, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, John Legend, Ryan Tedder, Jason Derulo and Neil Diamond for a chorus of Diamond's 'Sweet Caroline.'

The bit was clearly planned, but about halfway through, little Blue ran up to join the group in a moment that seemed genuinely impromptu.

The youngster was sitting in the front row of the arena and had just finished watching her expectant mother's show-stopping performance of two selections from 'Lemonade,' complete with an elaborate hologram introduction.

Blue, who turned five on January 7, also paid an adorable tribute to Prince, wearing a pink tuxedo with white ruffle blouse.

After 'Lemonade' won best urban contemporary album, Beyonce took the stage to give a powerful speech to empower "every child of every race."

Along with her husband Jay Z and Blue, the mum-to-be thanked "everyone who worked so hard to beautifully capture the profundity of deep southern culture."

"We all experience pain and loss and often we become inaudible," she said on stage.

"My intention for the film and album was to create a body of work that will give a voice to our pain, our struggles, our darkness and our history, to confront issues that make us uncomfortable."

"It's important to me to show images to my children that reflect their beauty so they can grow up in a world where they look in the mirror, first through their own families, as well as the news, the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the White House, and the Grammys, and see themselves, and have no doubt that they're beautiful, intelligent, and capable," she went on.

"This is something I want for every child of every race, and I feel it's vital that we learn from the past and recognise our tendencies to repeat our mistakes."
