The best reactions to Nicki Minaj's wild BET Awards performance

Your girl knows how to wow a crowd.

By Susannah Guthrie

There's confidence, and then there's "spreading your legs in front of a massive crowd while wearing red latex" confidence.

Nicki Minaj possesses the latter. The rapper went very rogue at this year's BET Awards while performing a medley of songs from her new album, showing off some jaw-dropping dance moves.

Nicki was a hotly anticipated performer on the night (which celebrates African-American artists in the entertainment industry) and didn't disappoint, bringing out a life-sized fake pink horse, a Japanese pagoda and a latex kimono. As you do.

But it was her performance of her song "Rich Sex" that really took things up a notch, with Queen Nicki stripping off to what was essentially a latex swimsuit, getting down on all fours and ending the song with her legs apart and in the air.

Not your average d-floor action.

Some people loved it sick, but the overwhelming reaction on social media was a resounding WTAF.

Basically, you were either the guy on the left or the guy on the right:

Guy on left: "HOLY MOLY." Guy on right: "Unimpressed."
Guy on left: "HOLY MOLY." Guy on right: "Unimpressed."

Here's what Twitter had to say about Splitgate 2018.

Hot tip: Do not try this move on Saturday night. It does not go down well.
