The 2021 Grammy Awards turned the heat up big time. On Sunday, March 14, Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B rocked the ceremony with an unforgettable performance of their hit song, "WAP." It was the first time the rap duo had performed together since the song dropped in August 2020, and they did not disappoint. Just ask viewers, because the tweets about Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's Grammys "WAP" performance are thirsty.
The pair's raunchy collab became an instant sensation when it dropped on Aug. 7, 2020, hitting No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and ending up on TIME's list of the 10 Best Songs of 2020. Cardi ultimately decided not to submit the song for Grammys consideration (in her words, "If I was pressed for a Grammy, I would've submitted 'WAP'"), but fans were still treated to a special performance of it during the awards ceremony. Megan first took the stage in a sparkly silver look, performing her hit singles "Body" and "Savage" with an ensemble of shimmery dancers behind her.
Then it was time for Cardi, who entered in a metallic pink ensemble and kicked things off with her fan-fave song "Up." She performed on a set with a giant stiletto heel before Megan came back out to join her for "WAP." The set then became a giant bed symbolizing the single's open celebration of female sexuality, and they danced above dancers clad in blue and purple (in a nod to the "WAP" music video's funhouse vibe).

After such an iconic and steamy performance, fans were shook, and many took to Twitter to gush over the duo.
Although Cardi B is already a Grammy winner, Megan took home three awards at the ceremony: Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song (for "Savage Remix"). Hopefully fans will get to see them onstage again sometime soon, but after months of waiting, it's safe to say that Cardi and Megan's first big "WAP" performance was worth the wait.
