Jay Z and Beyoncé, music’s hottest power couple, kicked off the 56th GRAMMY Awards with their steamiest performance yet.

Lights shined down on a wet-haired, Chromat-wearing Bey’ as she straddled a chair to "Drunk In Love." Her husband, Jay Z, joined her for his collaborative rhymes, making it their first televised performance of the hit from her Internet-smashing self-titled album. No one could miss the smile that Jay sported while performing alongside his wife -- or his hand as it slid down to pat her shaking derriere.
