Donning a striking leopard outfit, Cardi B delivered a scorching performance that left Offset couldn’t hide his excitement from the sidelines

She’s never been known as a shy performer.

So it was little surprise that Cardi B was in her element onstage at the Grammys on Sunday, with the 26-year-old twerking and gyrating her way through a performance of her track Money at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker was decked out in a leopard print body stocking for the racy show.

Later, she took to the stage to accept her first ever Grammy Award when her debut Invasion of Privacy won Best Rap Album.

The mother-of-one emerged onstage with a massive peacock tail fanned out behind her.

As well as the avian adornment, the former stripper rocked a bedazzled body stocking and a short, wavy wig.

She complete the outfit with a pair of black, platform heels.

Later, Cardi ditched the feathered tail and proceeded to prowl around the stage, even at one point climbing atop a grand piano and twerking.

She is one of the biggest stars in music.

So it’s only natural that Cardi B has one of the biggest entourages at The Grammys.

The I Like It rapper was accompanied by on/off husband Offset and four other handlers on the red carpet of the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Cardi completed the look with layered pearl necklaces and matching beehive headpiece.

Joining the Bodak Yellow hitmaker on the red carpet was her estranged husband, Offset.

The Migos star and Cardi put on an unfiltered display of affection, with both parents of six-month-old baby girl Kulture poking out their tongues and touching the tips together.

In a recent Harper’s Bazaar interview, the Bronx-born beauty spoke of her resistance to healing her broken marriage following cheating allegations against Offset.

‘I decided on my own,’ she said of leaving her husband. ‘Nobody makes my decisions about my life but me. I didn’t want to go to marriage counseling. He suggested it, but it’s like, ‘I don’t want to go.’ There’s no counselor or nothing that could make me change my mind.’

However, the red carpet display and the fact the pair were seen together during the Big Game Weekend Party in Atlanta, Georgia last weekend suggests a reconciliation may be on the cards.

Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Travis Scott, Diana Ross, and Cardi B are among a crowded field of performers scheduled for Sunday night’s Alicia Keys-hosted Grammy Awards.

Gaga will perform with Mark Ronson, with whom she collaborated on the song Shallow, while her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper represents the BAFTA Awards which also take place that same night.

Gaga tied for the third-highest number of nominations this year with five, for record of the year, song of the year, best pop duo or performance, and best song written for visual media for Shallow; and best pop performance for Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?).

She’s previously won six Grammy awards, including two in 2010, three in 2011, and one in 2015 for her collaboration album with Tony Bennett.

The move comes due to a disagreement with Grammy producers over which songs she would perform, according to sources close to the situation.

An insider tells Variety that Grande felt ‘insulted’ after producers initially refused to allow her to perform 7 Rings,’ the latest single from her forthcoming album Thank U, Next.

A compromise was reached whereby 7 Rings would be part of a medley, but Grande pulled out after producers insisted that the second song be of their choosing.

The source added that such stipulations were not imposed on other performers at the show.

The 61st annual Grammy Awards are produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures for the Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich is executive producer, Ben Winston is executive producer, Louis J. Horvitz is director, Chantel Sausedo is the producer, and David Wild and Ehrlich are the writers.
