Tonight, the E! People’s Choice Awards 2018 brought together some of the most influential figures across the entertainment and pop-culture realms. Stars such as Harry Shum Jr, Danai Gurira, Chadwick Boseman, Taylor Swift, and Kevin Hart were among the night's winners

New York rapper Nicki Minaj, who took home two awards, opened the show with high-energy performances of her hits "Good Form" and "Dip" bringing the crowd to their feet. To perform their joint single onstage, Nicki was joined by Tyga whose presence contributed to the lively atmosphere set the "Barbie Dreams" musician. Soon after her performance, the Young Money emcee was honored with the Female Artist of 2018 award, emerging as the top pick from a pool of accomplished artists Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Taylor Swift, and Ariana Grande. While accepting the award, she took a moment to thank designer Donatella Versace for her dress adding an appreciative "shout out to Michael B Jordan because he’s going to be taking it off me tonight." 

When accepting the award for 2018 album of the year, Nicki had a few special people on her mind: her fans, and Kim Kardashian West. "Thank you to all of the queens around the world that are maybe not at the place they want to be in their lives, but the fact that you are pushing and you are not being lazy and not complaining but going for your dreams every day, shout out to you," she said. She went on to add, "I wanna dedicate this award to Kim Kardashian’s ass in that dress.”

Who can be mad at that?
