Normani is yet again the name on everyone’s lips after a jaw-dropping awards ceremony performance.

This time taking to the 2018 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards at The Woodruff Arts Center’s Symphony Hall in Atlanta on Thursday night (August 30th), the former Fifth Harmony hitmaker wowed the audience as she rendered a tribute performance to the night’s honoree, Janet Jackson (who was on hand to accept the icon award).

Earning a standing ovation from Miss Jackson herself, look inside to see Normani slay ‘Pleasure Principle’:

HQ coming soon:

Normani wasn’t the only one that had people talking.  Jussie Smollett, H.E.R., and Teyana Taylor all contributed noteworthy performances to the tribute segment (introduced by Ciara).

    Love this girl! Can’t wait to hear her upcoming projects, I know she’s gonna be dancing her b*** off! I think Mya’s Pleasure Principle was a little better (MTV Icon Janet tribute), but Normani slayed nonetheless.

    • I said what I said August 31, 2018

      Not even close! I love Mya and a huge fan, but she did not slay like Normani did. Normani’s Performance is definitely more intricate as far as choreography goes than Mya’s. Also Normani gave a whole performance, Mya’s was basically 60 seconds.

        Exactly socmya had to limit hers I love normani, but you crazy if you think she dances better than Mya

    • RoyalKev August 31, 2018

      Mya can dance her behind off, but Normani did EVERY move from the video! I think this topped Mya’s performance!

    • Lake Erie August 31, 2018

  6. China August 31, 2018

    This is the BEST performance of the song i’ve Seen. Janet’s Rhy. Nation Tour was 1st. This is a 2nd. BUT real talk: Did ole girl slip at the end….???????? off the chain?

  7. Lake Erie August 31, 2018

    She killed it! She didn’t miss a beat. I hope to see a televised snippet of this.

  8. Justme August 31, 2018

    Normani is so talented. She did good. But Mya definitely did better than this and she had less time.. but janet enjoyed it and that’s all that matters

  9. SMH August 31, 2018

    Yeah Normani did THAT. She’s the Next Big Thing, now I can really see it.

  10. iamdiego August 31, 2018

    baby! my girl absolutely did that!

  11. Smoove Jones August 31, 2018

    It was cute but Mya’s performance remains the best.

  12. I hate Whytee and blcckk bitchesss they not ishh August 31, 2018

    a child in a Halloween cosutume,

    another imitator

  13. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. August 31, 2018

    She did okay. I think you guys are bordering on over hyping this kid.

  14. #TeamTinashe Stan August 31, 2018

    I thought she was gonna kill it tbh but this performance doesn’t even top Tinashe’s BET Awards performance of this song and that’s not saying much because even Tee said she could of done better.

  15. RoyalKev August 31, 2018

    Normani better do that! That Pleasure Principle routine is very serious and she came prepared!!!! This look like it could be one of the best Janet tributes I’ve ever seen!

  16. Junior in Jamaica August 31, 2018

    Mya, that’s all.

  17. Tricia September 1, 2018

    I’m a huge Camila stan, but I’m telling you… Normani IS that b***h and things are about to get serious. Only us day ones know it, but Normani is a multi-talented superstar. She can do performances like this in her sleep. She’s going to shock the world with how much she has to give. She’s hardworking, dedicated, confident, versatile, humble, beautiful, smart, and a million other things that all add up to LEGEND. Watch out, y’all… Normani is coming!
