Slow jam, indeed.

Rihanna toned down her elaborate and electrifying performances from years' past, this time opting for a slower beat with "Stay," her ballad from Unapologetic during the 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Donning a low-cut black dress, the singer put a twist to the dramatic song as singer-songwriter Mikky Ekko joined her for a duet.

Before hitting the stage, RiRi hit the red carpet in style, arriving in a red, custom-made Azzedine Alaia gown.

Throughout the show, the "Diamonds" singer has also been spotted cozying up to her beau Chris Brown as they enjoyed the evening's exciting wins and performances.

The pair are respectively nominated for awards: Rihanna earned nods for Best Pop Solo Performance for her song “Where Have You Been” and Best Rap/Song Collaboration for “Talk That Talk” with Jay-Z. As for Chris, he was in contention for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Rihanna also joined Ziggy Marley for a tribute to the late legend of reggae, Bob Marley, with a cover of "Could You Be Loved."
