Rihanna rocked the house at the 2018 Grammys tonight in true iconic fashion, with a mesmerizing performance of “Wild Thoughts.” Joined by DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller, the Barbados beauty stunned in a hot pink shimmering dress with an oversized flower pinned in her hair and her killer dance moves. Literally, we cannot get over how fire Rihanna’s performance was. It was sexy, powerful, and just straight up magic. And we need more magic in 2018 (thank you, RiRi).

The singer also won the Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Performance for “Royalty,” a collaboration she did with Kendrick Lamar. This is her ninth Grammy, after she was nominated for a total of eight last year but went home empty-handed. During their acceptance speech, Lamar said the award “really belongs to her,” a notion she responded to with grace.

“Well thank you Kendrick for giving me this incredible opportunity to be on such a good record,” she said. “I’m honored to be able to do this with you.”

I mean look how cute the pair was when they heard they won.

But back to the performance. Anything RiRi does will get the Twittersphere going, but tonight we wanted to share some particular memorable internet moments in honor of the Grammys.

First, here’s a quick recap for those of you who missed it.

Fans were pretty stoked to see Rihanna doing the Gwara Gwara, a South African dance move.

Then we have Giphy, who knew what the masses wanted.

With proper gifs in their arsenal, it was time to get to work.

We relate so hard. Baked > microwaved, every time.

Jezebel, we hear you, and we see you.
We, too, are still trying to pick ourselves up off the floor.
Us, every time we put on Fenty Lip Paint.
When you’re feeling yourself.
Lastly, this is probably the best photobomb of all time.
If you need a gif to send your friends tomorrow, we highly suggest these of Rihanna at the 2018 Grammys:
