One more coveted prize is revealed at the Sunday, January 31 celebration of 2010 Grammy Awards. Jay-Z wins Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Run This Town", his joint track with Rihanna and Kanye West. The announcement is made by Placido Domingo and Mos Def.

The rap mogul went onto the stage with Rihanna and Solange Knowles' son. While Jay-Z thanks the "genius that is Kanye West," who is nowhere to be seen during the telecast, Rihanna turns to Jigga for her thank-you speech.
