When we found out that Rihanna had to cancel her 2016 Grammys performance last minute due to bronchitis and a strict doctor's order, we were devastated. And so was everyone else:

So here we were, drowning in our sorrows and high expectations. All images we had of Riri strutting in a couture dress down the red carpet, gone. Images we had of Riri belting out "Work" and other new "Anti" tracks in front of Adele, who would be swaying along and singing the lyrics back to her, gone.
We. Were. Sad.
And then out of nowhere, an angel arrived to mend our broke hearts. And that angel was Beyoncé.
Emerging in a white, embellished lace gown by Inbal Dror, Queen Bey was an absolute vision as she presented the award to Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson for their hit "Uptown Funk," which took home Record of the Year. The dress, which featured intricate embroidery, long sleeves and a collared neckline, was simply stunning with its layers of overlay sheer lace that showed off the mother of one's legs beautifully.
As for her beauty look, the "Formation" hitmaker wore her hair in a slicked-back low bun with shimmering eye makeup. Her glossy nude lip and bronzed cheeks were accompanied by a pair of drop earrings.
Seriously guys, we owe Beyoncé big time. First she saves us at the Super Bowl halftime show and now this? We are not worthy.
