Last night’s 61st annual Grammy Awards was a huge night for women in music. The award ceremony featured many historical moments for the ladies from Camila Cabello being the first Latina to open the Grammys to Brandi Carlile being the first LGBTQ person to win a Grammy for the best Americana album. The real queen of the show, however, had to be reigning Bronx beauty.

Her debut album, “Invasion Of Privacy,” won the Best Rap Album of the Year, which made her the first solo woman to ever win that distinguished award. The rapper was at a loss for words when host Alicia Keys called her name. She was visibly in shock and told the audience “The nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed.” She went on to thank a slew of people and ended her speech by also thanking her baby.

“I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter,” she said. “It’s because, you know, when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete. I had, like, three songs I was for sure having. And then you know how it was: We was like, we have to get this album done so I could shoot these videos while I’m still not showing. And it was very long nights.”

In Cardi B form, the rapper continued to thank even more people backstage including everyone on her mom’s side and dad’s side of the family.

This time she didn’t have producers cueing her off the stage and could thank as many people as she wanted.

Cardi also performed her latest single “Money” from her Grammy-award winning album, but there was one drawback: she was lip-syncing.

Most people on social media cut her a break because she was performing on a massive stage with stairs, but others weren’t so kind.

@kimcollelo tweeted “Cardi B didn’t even sing—why’d she have to lip sync a rap?? That was a waste of my time and just an excuse to hump a piano.”

The real event of the night for Cardi came later that evening when she got home to her baby Kulture.

Her baby girl said mama for the very first time!

“After a week of only saying papa! She saying mama! Happy 7 months Kulture! We love you,” Cardi said on Instagram.

It was definitely Cardi B’s night, but before we go, here’s one more look at her stunning red-carpet entrance.

That tongue kiss says it all: they are back together.
