Well, that's definitely one way to start a show!
First, the unearthly Ariana Grande exited a spaceship to perform Break Free!
Then, Nicki Minaj and her several mud creature back up dancers performed Anaconda, which had her Minajesty fingering herself onstage! Don't worry she was wearing clothes…well, not a lot of clothes, but more clothes than we're used to seeing on her!
Then, the two of them and Jessie J performed Bang Bang, which featured Nicki barely holding her costume together! Her boobs just wanted to Break Free! #FREETHENIPPLE
Ch-ch-check out the entire opening sequence (above)!!!
