February 1, 2010

The little boy on Rihanna's right is Jay-Z's nephew Juelz, whom joined the stage as Rihanna and Jay-Z gave an acceptance speech.

Congratulations are in order for Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West on 2 Grammy wins for their chart-topping hit “Run This Town”: Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best Rap Song (January 31).** Jay-Z and Rihanna accepted the former award on behalf of the trio and thanked each other, their producers, and the fans and for appreciating the single.

Kanye West was banned from the Grammy Awards after he drunkenly interuppted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. West has since apologized and has taken a musical hiatus.

The Roc-A-Fella trio were up against 4 other hit collaborations, 2 including the controversial Kanye West: “Ego” by Beyoncé and West; “Knock You Down” by Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and West; “I’m On a Boat” by The Lonely Island and T-Pain; and “Dead & Gone” by T.I. and Justin Timberlake.***
