New York’s very own Cardi B Opened up the show with a surprise that shocked the world.

This year was nothing less than utter perfection & over the top. All eyes were on JLo during her stunning, vibrant performance, while also receiving the 2018 Michael Jackson Vanguard Award last night.

The Queen of rap Nicki Minaj gave us a dope performance that featured songs off of her 4th studio album QUEEN. While the chart-topping POP PRINCESS Ariana Grande performed a few hits off of her newly released album Sweetener. Travis Scott gave us a glimps of what is to be expected during his ASTRO WORLD TOUR. The night wasn’t complete without a memorable performance by Madonna honoring the Late Aretha Franklin, Who we had the unfortunately lost this past weekend.

And let us not forget the all of the well-deserved moon men that walked out of Radio City Music Hall last night. If You missed a
