Is it hot in here or is it just Ari and Nicki? Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj transported us to a tropical paradise for their 2016 American Music Awards performance of “Side of Side” and we’re still recovering from all the slayage.
Ariana kicked off the performance with a slew of dancers, showing off both her signature impressive pipes and some serious choreographed moves. She killed it!
Then, Nicki appeared on a throne fit for the queen that she is as dancers got their groove on around her, before getting up, strutting downstage and getting her groove on herself.
The performance ended with a NEXT LEVEL dance train including both Ari and Nicki that we’re still trying to process. It left us slayed, slayed, SLAYED.
