Beyoncé' and Jay-Z opened the ceremony together with a duet of her hit single Drunk in Love, but behind the scenes they only had eyes for two-year-old Blue Ivy.
The Single Ladies singer shared the intimate photos with millions of her fans on her Tumblr account. The first in the series shows the proud mum leading her little girl down a corridor backstage at the Staples Center, where the prestigious music awards were held.
In one snap, Beyoncé' plays with her daughter as she prepares for the evening's performance, while in another Blue Ivy stands on a table in front of proud dad Jay-Z. The two-year-old, the couple's first child, was most recently seen celebrating her birthday with a lavish princess-themed party at Miami's Jungle Island.
