  • Cardi B performed her single “I Like It” with Bad Bunny and J Balvin during ABC’s broadcast of the American Music Awards on Tuesday from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theatre.
  • The performance provided viewers with a lot of dynamic elements.
  • “Saturday Night Live” star Taran Killam’s expression while watching the performance pretty much summed up how viewers felt.

Cardi B performed during Tuesday’s broadcast of the American Music Awards in Los Angeles and left quite the impression on “Saturday Night Live” star Taran Killam.

The rapper hit the stage with her newest single, “I Like It,” alongside Bad Bunny (who was wheeled out in a shopping cart) and J Balvin.

Decked out in Mardi Gras colours, Cardi B pulled out all the stops. Fans loved when she pulled off her skirt to proudly reveal her fit body after giving birth to her daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, in July. At another point, she rode past the audience on a bicycle, and she also showed off her flexibility by pulling her leg up to her head.

Killam’s face became the perfect expression for the performance.


Cardi B tied with Drake for the top-nominated AMA artist this year with a total of eight nominations, including New Artist of the Year. At the time of her performance, she’d already nabbed the award for Favourite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist.
