Megan Thee Stallion performs onstage during the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards at Los Angeles Convention Center and broadcast on March 14, 2021 in Los Angeles.

Fresh off her win for best new artist earlier in the broadcast, Megan Thee Stallion barnstromed the Grammy stage on Sunday night (March 14) for a performance of her Grammy-nominated "Savage," following a quick intro that also dipped into her Good News hit "Body."

Looking like a hip-hop Marilyn Monroe in a shimmering silver bodysuit, Megan cascaded a giant staircase and of course offered no shortage of twerking -- particularly once she put the mic down during a piped-in version of Beyoncé's "Savage" guest verse.

Combining the classic with the modern, the performance also took a minute out for a tap-dance break, with two backing dancers doing jumping splits in a likely homage to The Nicholas Brothers.

In addition to her best new artist victory, Megan The Stallion also took home best rap performance for "Savage" -- which is still up for two more awards on the night: best rap song and record of the year. Megan was also a two-time performer on the night, appearing alongside Cardi B shortly after her own solo performance for a debut TV performance of the star duo's 2020 smash "WAP."
