During the auctioning part of the night, Blue Ivy couldn't help herself when she began to bid on her favourite piece.

The six-year-old daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z joined her famous parents at the Wearable Art Gala - which was organised by the "Formation" hitmaker's mother, Tina Lawson, and her husband Richard - at the Alexandria Ballrooms in Los Angeles, and a piece of art caught her eye when it went under the hammer.

In a series of viral videos captured by fans, Blue was seen boldly raising her paddle for an acrylic painting of the young Sidney Poitier.

The theme of the night was "From WACO to Wakanda", and the mother-daughter duo totally nailed it in metallic ensembles with matching headpieces. After she held up her sign, Jay-Z jokingly tried to stop her from continuing to bid, drawing laughs.

Local businesses and community members walked in the parade handing out candy and waving at the crowd. For others though, this year marked the first time they were watching the small canal town's parade .

Beyoncé was presented with the Humanitarian Award for "providing support to numerous relief efforts throughout the world", according to The Mirror.

"I never thought people should receive awards like this because in my opinion, the giving is the reward and that's enough", said the Grammy victor according to Vanity Fair. I'm fucking weak. Her and Jay-Z were fighting for the paddle. "And if I'm honoured, I keep it quiet because I feel like I could be doing more".

"At a time where so many people are feeling afraid and looking inward, honey you give us the courage to reach out across every divide--race, class, gender, geography". "Why you think I'm up here talking about it?" Beyoncé also received the highest honor an American can achieve: an "I love you" from Michelle Obama.
