Fresh off her win for best new artist earlier in the broadcast, Megan Thee Stallion barnstromed the Grammy stage on Sunday night (Mar. 14) for a performance of her Grammy-nominated “Savage,” following a quick intro that also dipped into her Good News hit “Body.”
Looking like a hip-hop Marilyn Monroe in a shimmering silver bodysuit, Megan cascaded a giant staircase and of course offered no shortage of twerking — particularly once she put the mic down during a piped-in version of Beyoncé’s “Savage” guest verse. Combining the classic with the modern, the performance also took a minute out for a tap-dance break, with two backing dancers doing jumping splits in a likely homage to The Nicholas Brothers.
In addition to her best new artist victory, Megan The Stallion also took home best rap performance for “Savage” — which is still up for two more awards on the night: best rap song and record of the year. Megan was also a two-time performer on the night, appearing alongside Cardi B shortly after her own solo performance for a debut TV performance of the star duo’s 2020 smash “WAP.”
