Kicking off the 39th Annual American Music Awards with an electrifying performance of "Turn Me On" and "Super Bass", Nicki Minaj got the show off to a rockin' start, with the help of American Idol alum, David Guetta.
The pink haired rapper later ditched her metal wear for a bright green ball gown skirt and black lace bodice to pick up her awards for Favorite Hip Hop Artist and Favorite Hip Hop Album.
Also in attendance? Little Sophia Grace Brownlee, the 8-year-old who received worldwide attention after taping her own cover of â€œSuper Bass,â€ and posting it on YouTube. The budding rapper was there to interview the stars for The Ellen DeGeneres Show!
What did you think of Nicki's opening performance tonight?
