However, it all went a little bit wrong when a stray dinosaur got in the way and photobombed the 'Anaconda' singer. So typical.
The prehistoric creature had been roaming the ceremony throughout the night but it managed to be in just the right place when Queen Nicki wanted to take her selfie.
Sadly, she wasn't too pleased with the dinosaur's appearance, looking horrified when she caught sight of it in her phone. She immediately turned and started shouting at the creature: "Oh, my f**king god! Photobombing a selfie? That's so early 2014!"
She carried on ranting: "You stupid f**king dinosaur. Get the f**k outta here!"
Nicki had been showcasing her diva credentials all night, changing her outfits on a regular basis and shouting out to the crowds in Glasgow to make some noise.
Clearly sharing the limelight with a dino was a step too far!
