She did the Gwara Gwara, a South African dance, during her performance.

Earlier in the night, Rihanna took home a Grammy for her performance in Kendrick Lamar’s “Loyalty” (decked out in head-to-toe leather, no less). The duo won the award for Best Rap/Sung Performance; this trophy marks Rihanna’s ninth Grammy win out of 33 nominations.
