Beyoncé's (and Jay Z's) intoxication/love anthem "Drunk in Love" deservedly won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance. Here are a few people she thanked during her acceptance speech. You might recognize one of them.

By the way, Jay Z remained in the audience while Beyoncé, who is permanently pregnant, accepted the trophy for their duet. She publicly acknowledged and thanked the BeyHive (was this a first?)... and other people, in this order:

  • God ("This has been such an incredible year")
  • Her "beloved husband" Jay Z ("I love you deep")
  • Blue Ivy ("I love you")
  • The BeyHive ("For riding so hard")

And here it is, rearranged in order of importance:

  • The BeyHive
  • Blue Ivy
