She kept awards-show fashion "rock and roll," was "kinda real," "legendary" and "fierce" on stage and committed no natal errors. Other than not taking home an award, M.I.A. had a great Grammy night.

In fact, we can confidently say the singer turned in the best-ever performance by a nine-months-pregnant artist waddling around stage in a bumble bee costume. You try doing that next to Kanye West, Jay-Z, Lil' Wayne and TI.

Another key moment: Jennifer Hudson accepting the prize for best R&B album and thanking her "family in heaven."
