Jay-Z, Kanye West, The-Dream and Frank Ocean have all won Grammys on their own. However, the artists’ collaborative effort on ‘No Church in the Wild,’ off Hov and ‘Ye’s ‘Watch the Throne’ LP, earned them a gramophone for Best/Rap Sung Collaboration at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night.

“I didn’t think I was going to be the first to speak on this one,” Ocean said in shock — possibly from his win earlier this evening.

Meanwhile, The-Dream wanted to make sure he got to show his appreciation by naming a few people who he didn’t have the opportunity to thank during a previous Grammy acceptance speech. “I’d like to thank Roc Nation and just everybody and last time I was cut off from my Grammy speech but I just want to thank my mom and grandfather,” he said graciously.

Kanye didn’t make it to this year’s awards ceremony. And although Jay-Z was present, he was a man of few words — he chose to use his minimal talk to joke about Dream’s hat. “I would like to thank the swap meet for his hat,” Hov quipped.

‘Wild Ones’ by Flo Rida and Sia, ‘Tonight (Best You Ever Had) by John Legend and Ludacris, ‘Cherry Wine’ by Nas and Amy Winehouse and ‘Talk That Talk’ by Rihanna and Jay-Z were also nominated for this Grammy category.
