Everything looked "normal", and there were no signs of extraordinary things happening - until the last few seconds of her "Wild Thoughts" performance alongside DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller. "I never gave up!", with a series of key emojis.

She showed a few moves that resembled South African favourite, the "Gwaragwara", which was part of the group choreography. It shows that Africa can make a big impact on worldwide dance. Shining in three divergent ensembles over the course of one night, Rihanna's ever-evolving Grammys looks were proof that the ongoing collaboration between her and stylist Mel Ottenberg remains one of fashion's most exciting.

The responses (or rather corrections) came streaming in.

The celebrations became more heated when a U.S. magazine tweeted and called the same dance move, "the stanky leg".

"This is not the Skanky leg; this is the #GwaraGwara it originates in South Africa".
