Did Jay just give us a shout out?  No, not really, but I’m still gonna act like he did!

At the 56th Grammy Awards, Jay Z walked away with the trophy for “Best Rap Song Collaboration” with Justin Timberlake for their song “Holy Grail”.  After thanking J. Tim, producer Timbaland and “all the typical things”, papa Jay had a special message for his baby girl, Blue Ivy.  “And I want to tell Blue, ‘Look! Daddy’s got a gold sippy cup for you,” the rapper said while holding up his Grammy.

Talk about an awwww-inducing moment!

Jay also took time out to thank the man upstairs  for Blue’s momma, Beyonce.  “I want to thank God – I mean a little bit for this award, but mostly for that and all of the universe for conspiring and putting that beautiful light of a young lady in my life,” Mr. Carter said while Bey blushed in the audience.

The duo opened the Grammys performing “Drunk In Love” from Beyonce’s self-titled surprise visual album.  Take a look.
