Beyonce, Jay Z strike a pose after the Grammys

Beyonce and Jay Z skipped the journalist chit-chat after the Grammy Awards Sunday night (my colleague Melissa Ruggieri, who spent time with Sam Smith and other winners, noted that Mr. and Mrs. Carter walked on by).

Queen Bey added to her awards shelf on Sunday night (for best R&B song, best R&B performance and best surround sound), bringing her career total to 20. She also performed "Take My Hand, Precious Lord," while Ledisi, who sang it in "Selma" while portraying Mahalia Jackson, watched with the rest of the audience.

“This has been such an incredible year,” she said, then looked into the crowd at Jay Z and added, “I’d like to thank my beloved husband. I love you deep.”

A little while later, Bey and Jay and her new hardware took this photo.
