Beyonce and Jay Z's daughter Blue Ivy has just won her first ever Grammy award at the tender age of nine. She's one of the recipients of the Best Music Video prize for her starring role in her mum's Brown Skin Girl music video, a song she made with SAINt JHN and WizKid.

The winner was announced ahead of the ceremony, set to be held in Los Angeles tonight and starting at midnight UK time.

Sharing the news on Twitter, the Recording Academy's official account wrote: "Congrats Best Music Video winner - 'BROWN SKIN GIRL' @Beyonce #BlueIvy @wizkidayo Sparkles #GRAMMYs."

The track was part of Beyonce's Lion King album, The Gift, and even includes a verse by Blue, who appears in the video alongside her famous mum.

Blue Ivy just won her first Grammy.

Blue being listed as a featured artist on the track means she's become one of the youngest people ever to win a Grammy.

She's beaten only by The Peasall Sisters member Leah, who was seven when she recorded their soundtrack for O Brother, Where Art Thou? She was eight when she won a Best Album Grammy alongside her siblings.

Beyonce, who also shares twins Rumi and Sir, three, with her rapper husband, is all about supporting her fellow women.

She recently praised Meghan Markle for having the bravery to speak out in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

After Meghan and Prince Harry's interview aired, Beyonce shared a photo of herself and the Duchess of Sussex hugging at the Lion King premiere in London.

She's only nine and already winning awards.

She wrote: "Thank you Meghan for your courage and leadership. We are all strengthened and inspired by you."

Tonight's Grammy Awards ceremony will include performances from Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles and Taylor Swift.

Some of the performances have been pre-recorded while others will be shown live with the awards air on television.

The event was previously scheduled to go ahead in January, but it had to be postponed due to a spike in Covid-19 cases in Los Angeles.

Speaking to Variety, first-time Grammy executive producer Ben Winston said: "We've designed a set that you could argue makes it an even more exciting show.

"The performers and nominees are each other's audience, so it's a room of incredible musicians, all safely distanced from each other, and every 45 minutes a new four groups come in and the [previous] four go out."
