Cardi B Slays Her Performance of “I Like It” at the American Music Awards

Cardi B’s in full bloom…

The 25-year-old half-Dominican American rapper joined voices with Bad Bunny and J Balvin for a technicolor live performance of their hit single “I Like It” during the American Music Awards.

Cardi B I Like It AMAs

Cardi B recruited a small live band and utilized an elaborate presentation for the trap-salsa track.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper opened the song on a spinning platform, with a camera capturing her movements from an overhead angle. Dancers wheeled out Bad Bunny in a gold-tinted shopping cart, and J Balvin delivered his verse from atop of a massive stage prop.

“I Like It,” which landed at No. 1 on the Billboard‘s Hot 100, is one of several popular singles from Cardi B’s debut LP, Invasion of Privacy, along with “Be Careful,” “Bartier Cardi,” “Drip” and her breakout single, “Bodak Yellow.”

Cardi B, who rocked the red carpet in florals, picked up three AMAs trophies by the end of the night.

Mariah Carey Debuts New Single “With You” at the American Music Awards

Mariah Carey is sharing her new music…

The 49-year-old half-Venezuelan American songstress debuted her new single “With You” for the first time on television at the last night’s American Music Awards.

Mariah Carey

Carey decided to keep it all about the vocals as she stood mostly still while performing the lovesick slow-jam in an elaborate pink dress, which unfolded to reveal a group of dancers who crawled and writhed around the singer’s feet.

The Mustard-produced track is the official first single from Carey’s upcoming fifteenth studio album — her first since 2014 — which does not yet have a title or release date.

Last month, she released the smoldering kiss-off “GTFO” to whet fans’ appetites.

Earlier, Carey teased the video for “With You,” sharing a video of herself in what appears to be an editing booth and promising that the final product is coming soon.
