The rapper embraced her inner showgirl during a lush performance of her latest single “Money.” The stage was first taken by a pianist, performing an impassioned overture before the camera panned to Cardi B at the top of a set of risers fashioned like vinyl couches. The set had touches of Las Vegas showmanship as she vamped atop the bedazzled piano and later danced in front of a large peacock feather fan.

Prior to this year’s ceremony, Cardi B was nominated for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song last year for her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow.” Tonight, her songs “I Like It” and “Be Careful” are recognized in Record of the Year and Best Rap Performance respectively while Invasion of Privacy is up for Best Rap Album. Along with her solo nominations, her Number One Maroon 5 collaboration “Girls Like You” is a top contender in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
