Cardi B’s Grammys Performance & the Video Is a Must-See

The 61st annual Grammy awards are off to a great start. Alicia Keys is absolutely killing it, but what everyone can’t stop talking about is Cardi B’s Grammys’ 2019 performance. The rapper owned the stage like no one else.

After owning the red carpet in an oyster-inspired get-up, Cardi rocked a cropped-hair look with a tight black body suit for her performance of “Money.”

The performance started with Cardi resting on a piano in fabulous fashion before she did a high kick to the side of her head. She even thrusted on top of the piano at one point. There was no doubt that the rapper seemed confident and delivered a fantastic performance (as usual.)

Offset certainly thought so, halfway through the performance, the camera turned to Offset, who was seen jamming and sticking his tongue out as Cardi twerked on the Grammys stage. (ICYMI, Offset and Cardi also walked the Grammys red carpet together.) Pretty sure that’s what everyone will be talking about. That, and Cardi B’s killer performance of “Money.”

The rapper is nominated for five Grammys tonight, including both Album and Record of the Year. She also received recognition for Best Pop Duo/Group performance, Rap Performance and Rap Album.

Prior to tonight, Cardi B shared that she’s been filled with anxiety about the possibility of winning an award and performing in tonight’s show.

“You can never really be so sure,” Cardi B told The Associated Press while promoting her new Pepsi “Okurrr” commercial. “For some reason, with this whole Grammys coming, my mind has been like anxiety, anxiety,” she added.

But the 26-year-old has nothing to worry about right now—she has stolen the show so far with her performance. It was only her second time taking the stage in front of all her fellow nominated musicians at music’s biggest night, so we can understand why she felt some pressure. In 2018, she absolutely crushed it performing “Finesse” with Bruno Mars at the Grammys. What a duo.
