Rihanna’s performance of Wild Thoughts at the Grammys last night is already an internet sensation.
The singer stood out at the awards ceremony with her high energy four minute routine with a South African dance.
The 29-year-old star stole the stage with her DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller collaboration.

The dance was energetic and matched with some amusing facial expressions.
A clip of her Gwara Gwara dance is being shared all over Twitter and is now being used as a meme.

It was the liveliest performance of the three hour show, and Rihanna was clearly having a great time.
One of the funniest captions on the video reads ‘When she hungry and finally get some food’.

That one kind of went over my head.

One Twitter user hit the nail on the head, using Rihanna‘s dance as a celebration meme for ‘when you have to call someone you don’t want to talk to and the voicemail picks up’.

The next one is niche, but truly great.

Of course there were loads of food-related ones, i.e when my [insert any food here] arrives.

In additions to performing, the Barbadian singer was nominated for, and won, a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Performance for her collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on Loyalty off his album Damn.
While accepting the award, Lamar quickly turned to praising Rihanna, gushing that she ‘gassed me on my own song’ and the award ‘really belongs to her’.
The 60th annual Grammy Awards, hosted by James Corden, was broadcast live on CBS from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
