Cardi B, Doja Cat and more perform at the 2021 Grammys

Spectacular stages from rap’s biggest stars.

Cardi B, Doja Cat, Lil Baby and more rap stars took to the stage on Sunday night to perform at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards.

The night’s biggest winner Megan Thee Stallion stunned with a glamorous burlesque-inspired set for her Grammy-winning “Savage” remix. Although featured artist Beyoncé didn’t join her on the stage, Meg flawlessly carried the performance before segueing into her smash hit, “Body.” She was later joined by Cardi B for their first-ever live performance of “WAP” before the latter took over the stage for “Up.”

But Meg and Cardi weren’t the only ones who delivered joint performances: DaBaby and Roddy Ricch teamed up for “Rockstar,” while Bad Bunny enlisted Jhay Cortez to perform the El Último Tour del Mundo hit “DÁKITI.” Meanwhile, Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars made their live debut as Silk Sonic, before later returning to the stage for the In Memoriam segment to pay tribute to the late Little Richard.

On the other hand, Doja Cat, Lil Baby and Post Malone opted to go solo. Doja put on a sci-fi-themed performance for her Grammy-nominated song “Say So,” Lil Baby addressed racial injustice in “The Bigger Picture,” while Posty kept it simple for his haunting “Hollywood’s Bleeding” performance.

Roddy Ricch returned later that evening to close out the ceremony with a poignant two-song medley featuring “The Box” and an unreleased song, “Heartless.” Backed by a live band and a harpist, the rapper sang while also playing the piano. “The money turned me to a target, got a Hellcat Dodge it / I hope you lookin’ down on me, I hope you’re proud of me,” he rapped/sang on “Heartless.”
