The 2014 BET Awards brought out hip-hop's biggest stars on Sunday, but we only had eyes for the ladies. Namely, Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea, who made this year's ceremony the first show in well over a decade to feature two currently relevant superstar femcees. (Three, if you include Missy Elliott, but when was the last time she had a hit?)
While Nicki was the only one of the pair to win on the night (she picked up Best Female Hip-Hop Artist for the fifth consecutive year), both rapstresses took to the stage to perform their respective new singles.
For her performance, Nicki rode in on a motorcycle rapping "Chi-Raq" before launching into an Alice in Wonderland themed rendition of "Pills N Potion," while Iggy was joined by T.I. for "No Mediocre," before whipping out the No. 1 song in the country, "Fancy."
Despite speculation that Nicki dissed her chart rival during her acceptance speech by taking shots at rappers that don't write their own rhymes, the "Starships" songstress was up and dancing during "Fancy," so it can't be too serious. That is, unless she was dancing ironically. If so, then that's a lethal dose of shade.
