Cardi B hosted the 2021 American Music Awards on November 21, 2021, and she made sure to leave an impression.
The “WAP” rapper, who welcomed her second child two months ago, made her hosting debut, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where she brought down the house with dramatic ensembles and her humor.
For her first look, Cardi wore a black figure-hugging dress with a thigh-high slit.
She also stepped out in an elegant black gown with a dramatic feathered headdress and silver diamond jewelry.
Cardi admitted that she was a bit nervous, but was going to make sure everyone had a great time.
“Damn this crowd is loud,” she said as she welcomed everyone to the 2021 AMAs. “I ain’t gonna lie. I’m a little nervous. I’m sweating.”
Cardi also made a statement in a velvet deep purple gown with feathered sleeves as she introduced Jennifer Lopez.
“She’s a big time hustler, she do movie, she dance, she sell perfumes..clothes, everything,” Cardi said of Jennifer.
Before opening the show, she made a dramatic appearance by covering her face with a gold mask and thin veil. She looked amazing in a strapless gown that included gloves.
