The 2021 BET Awards brought with it a bundle of iconic performances from artists such as Cardi B, Lil Nas X, Megan Thee Stallion and more.
Cardi B broke the internet last night when she debuted her pregnancy during a performance with her husband Offset’s group Migos. The rapper wore a bedazzled one-piece with an opening that showcased her baby bump. The couple’s first child, Kulture Kiari, was born in July of 2018.

Lil Nas X made BET Awards history last night during a performance of his newest hit track, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” The singer performed on an Egyptian-themed set dressed as a pharaoh. The costuming drew direct influence from Michael Jackson’s “Remember The Time,” so much so that Lil Nas X played a snippet of the song during his performance. It all culminated in the singer passionately kissing one of his male dancers.

The first was a solo performance of her song “Thot Sh*t,” where she appeared in a latex bodysuit and knee-high boots. The second was a collaboration with DJ Khaled, Da Baby, Lil Baby, and Lil Durk.

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak gave the world another taste of Silk Sonic with their latest rendition of “Leave The Door Open.” The duo debuted their supergroup back in April. Paak trolled audience members and viewers alike when he suggested that the pair would be performing a new track. There is still no sign as to when the group’s debut album will be released.
