Cardi B has arguably had the best year ever, and she's adding to the memories tonight at the 2018 American Music Awards with an unforgettable performance of her hit song "I Like It."

Cardi took the stage tonight (Oct. 9) to perform the track along with features Bad Bunny and J Balvin. A camera from the ceiling captured her first verse as the lights got brighter, revealing her colorful, ruffled number. She then ripped off the voluminous tulle and performed a salsa dance with a man in red as Bad Bunny and J Balvin performed with a live band, complete with trumpet and bongo players.

Cardi's husband Offset and Quavo could be seen dancing on the sidelines as Cardi rapped the song for the first time on television.

"I have the best seat in the house!" Tracee Ellis Ross, who danced to "Bodak Yellow" at the beginning of the night, screamed. "Cardi B! I love her."

At the start of the ceremony, Cardi B won the first award of the night for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist, winning over Post Malone and Drake, who, like her, put out some great music this year on their respective solo LPs.

Take a look at who else won awards tonight, including Post Malone.
