Jay Z and Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy, was the star attraction at the 60th Grammy Awards at Madison Square in New York on Sunday.

The six-year-old mesmerized guests as she gestured her parents to stop clapping so that she could listen to Camila Capello’s speech.

“Blue let them know who’s REALLY in charge here,” one Twitter user wrote in response to the clip of the incident.

The couple who welcomed their twins in June slayed on the red carpet with Beyonce choosing a high-neck black velvet gown featuring cut-out shoulders and a solo front panel.

Jay Z wore an all-black suit while Blue broke her parent’s black look with a white ruffled coat with matching trousers.
