The 26-year-old rapper set the tone for the 2019 BET Awards on Sunday night as the crowd got hyped with a sexy, high-energy opening number.
To oohs and aahs from the watching audience, Cardi gave her husband, Offset, a sexy lap dance on stage while performing her hit track, "Press."
Cardi looked incredible in a sparkly green look as she danced on top of her hubby, before completing the mind-blowing opening performance with a choreographed dance alongside incredible backup dancers.
The mom of one is nominated for Best Collaboration for "Please Me" with Bruno Mars and "I Like It" with J Balvin and Bad Bunny, Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Video of the Year for "Please Me" and "Money," Album of the Year for Invasion of Privacy and the 2019 Coca-Cola Viewers' Choice Award for "I Like It."
It's been a week of ups and downs for Cardi, who was indicted by a grand jury in Queens, New York, on Friday, connected to misdemeanor charges stemming from an August altercation at a strip club. The rapper is clearly focusing on the positive and putting on a show for her fans.
