Beyoncé and Jay Z

The power couple could pull off the night's power play with the live debut of latest collaboration Drunk in Love from Beyoncé's current self-titled album or their nominated rap/sung collaboration, Part II (On The Run), or such earlier duets as Crazy in Love, Hollywood, 03 Bonnie & Clyde or Déjà Vu.
