Cardi looked incredible in sparkly green as she danced on top of her hubby, before completing the mind-blowing opening performance with a choreographed dance alongside incredible backup dancers.

Cardi teased her performance hours before the show. "Sooo I'm opening the show today and my anxiety is killing me. Wish me luck guys. BET AWARDS," she tweeted on Sunday morning.

The mum of one won Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and Album of the Year for"Invasion of Privacy".
