Beyonce skipped the 2014 Grammys red carpet but all is forgiven because "Drunk in Love" you guys!

The fierce momma didn't grace reporters with her royal presence because she was preparing for the opening act of the night on Sunday, and boy was it well worth the wait.

Queen Bey started off the show performing her hit song "Drunk in Love" while sporting a wet, wavy blond bob (rawr!) and a black sheer bodysuit which showed off her bootylicious bod.

Hubby Jay Z joined his sexy wife for his part of the duet (and if you haven't seen the video for it, you're welcome) where he admired Bey's outfit which also featured bondage-style straps and a sequin bra.

Love ya forever Beysus!

Beyonce is queen over all of them:
