Normani put on a show stopping display at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night when she took to the stage to perform her new single Wild Side – and she definitely lived up to the title.
The singer was decked out in a silver bra and trousers for the performance, and after throwing some shapes with her backing dancers she roped in model and singer Teyana Taylor for the main event.
Teyana was strapped to a board in a silver bikini facing the audience, with restraints on her wrists as Normani a ran a hand up her legs and body.
The former Fifth Harmony star clambered all over her and pretended to lean in for a kiss before twerking in front of her.
Turning up the heat at the Barclays Center in New York even more, Normani straddled Teyana and leaned back upside down, running her hands down her chest.
Hosted by Doja Cat, the VMAs saw the likes of Justin Bieber and Lil Nas X take home trophies.
The rapper, 22, won the coveted video of the year award for Montero (Call Me By Your Name).
The rapper beat Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's WAP, Ed Sheeran's Bad Habits, Doja Cat ft SZA's Kiss Me More, DJ Khaled and Drake's Popstar, and The Weeknd's Save Your Tears to take the prize for his instantly iconic video, which sees him pole-dancing into hell and giving Satan a lapdance.
