Social media freaks out over Rihanna doing the Gwaragwara

The 2018 Grammy Awards have naturally been trending for the past few hours for a number of reasons... 

Beyonce's outfits, Blue Ivy's sass, Jay Z and Cardi B's losses, and the various performances but one particular reason (besides Ladysmith Black Mambazo's win) has South Africa sitting up and taking notice... 

Rihanna took to the stage to perform the DJ Khaled smash hit, Wild Thoughts, which she features on alongside Bryson Tiller. During the high-paced performance, Rihanna does a number of moves surrounded by dancers but there's one particular move at the end that looks a lot like DJ Bongz' dance, the 'Gwara Gwara', check it out: 

The Americans have a similar dance called the stanky leg but the movement is both similar to but entirely different from the Gwara Gwara. 

Other highlights from the evening include the performances from Bruno Mars (who took home 7 awards on the night), Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga.
