Doja Cat sure knows how to make an impression.
The rapper demonstrated that with an ultra-sexy “Cabaret”-inspired medley of her hits “Juicy” and “Say So” during the 2020 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday night.
Drawing inspiration from Bob Fosse’s iconic choreography in the 1972 film version of the Broadway hit, Doja Cat and a cadre of backup dancers used black wooden chairs to maximum effect.
In addition to performing, Doja Cat is also a nominee, with “Juicy” earning a Billboard Music Award nomination in the R&B category.
Ahead of the awards, Doja Cat admitted she was “very excited” about hitting the stage.
“We’ve been working on this for maybe three weeks,” she said of the performance. “I’ve never been more excited about an awards performance before.”
She teased what was in store: “They can expect Fosse. That’s all I’m going to say.”
Fans took to Twitter to share their excitement about the dazzling performance.
