She skipped the Grammys, but that didn't stop Ariana Grande from showing off the designer gown she would have worn to music's biggest night.

Ariana covered a Pete tattoo on her left ring finger with a solemn black heart while Pete also turned a nod to Dangerous Woman into a black heart.

"F-k", Grande tweeted after learning that she won.

The pop sensation, who is riding high on the success of Thank U and Next, bagged her first Grammy Award after her album Sweetener won the Best Pop Vocal Album.

Miller had been nominated, and Grande had clearly been holding out for a posthumous honour.

Cardi B is an undisputed star, and her ascension continued on Sunday night with her winning Best Rap Album at the 2019 Grammys (Feb. 10). She won't even be there at the ceremony.

"You, husband, thank you", she said.

The 39-year-old singer did not attend the show and, for the 20th time, lost at the Grammys. She then chose not to attend the ceremony at all, and expressed her feelings on the matter online.

Grande offered her account of the mix-up of Twitter posts, of which the above Tweet posted on February 7th encapsulates her position quite well.

"Trust, I tried and still truly wished it had worked". She added "T$3 his is wild and handsome".

Though it's her name on the album, Grande didn't do it alone, and she acknowledged this.

But she was passed over in the top Grammy categories of Album, Record and Song of the Year - though her smash hit Thank U, Next, the title song off her new album, dropped after this year's nomination deadline.

And though she didn't attend, Grande still chose to make the best of the night and celebrate.
