“Swish Swish” duo Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj wrapped up Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards with a killer performance of the Taylor Swift diss track… which could have been weird since Taylor’s “Look What You Made Me Do” video premiered at the same show.
Pointless celebrity drama aside, the performance was an exciting end to the VMAs, which Katy Perry hosted Sunday night, too. The basketball-themed set ended with Katy flying through the air to make a slam dunk while balloons disguised as basketballs dropped from the ceiling.
Nicki Minaj was the highlight of the performance, with Billboard concluding she “sounded like fire on her verse, which she delivered with casual savagery and queenly attitude.” Great work, Nicki!
