Cardi B isn’t letting the watchful eyes of millions of viewers interrupt some personal time with her man.

The “I Like It” rapper and husband, Offset, opened the 2019 BET Awards Sunday and put on quite a show – Cardi giving Offset a lengthy lap dance on stage.

The show kicked off with the Migos rapper, 27, performing “Clout” off his recent solo album Father of 4.

Cardi soon joined him to rap her part of the track, making quite an entrance as she hit the stage in a green, sparkling corset ensemble, and straddled her husband on stage as he sat down in a chair.  The star then moved her lap dance onto the floor before working her way into her hit “Press.”

Despite tweeting about her anxiety ahead of the show, Cardi later wrote on social media, “The @BET awards was so lit. Everybody turn the f— up from Beginning to End.”

Apart from Cardi’s performance, the show was filled with some emotional moments including a moving tribute to late rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was shot and killed in Los Angeles in March at age 33.

T.I. presented Hussle with a posthumous humanitarian award that was accepted by his girlfriend, Lauren London, and his family, including his two children.

“I just want to thank you guys for all the love and support,” London told the audience. “The marathon continues again.”

Hussle also won the award for Best Male Hip Hop Artist.
