It’s been almost a month since the Grammys announced Cardi B would take the stage, and it’s been approximately that long since the internet lost all chill and started counting down the days to see Cardi take the stage. She just performed at “the Oscars of porn,” but this is what we’ve all been waiting for since Invasion of Privacy came out last year. At last, the joyous day is finally here and Cardi completely owned it and powered through a wardrobe malfunction.
Cardi’s performance started with a ditty on a glittery piano before she dove right into “Money,” and her dancers started doing the most graceful spreadeagles in history. The set looked straight out of an old Hollywood film set, with Cardi working the plush stands on the stage.
At one point in the performance, the glittery, possibly-real diamond necklace Cardi had clipped around her neck started slipping off, but Cardi didn’t pay it any mind and kept moving her hips and all the feathers that were attached to her body. As a true performer, she embodied that show-must-go-on attitude and let the diamonds fall where they may. After all, she does have a bunch of money and can probably replace them without going bankrupt.

Sadly, “Twerk” didn’t make the cut for her medley, but let’s watch it anyway. Shall we? It’s a gift.
The whole thing was peak Cardi, and all other performers will be hard pressed to top it— except for Diana Ross, who transcends all genres and time.
This year, Cardi was nominated for Album and Rap Album of the Year, Record of the Year for “I Like It,” Pop Duo/Group for “Girls Like You,” and Rap Performance for “Be Careful.”
