Cardi B has been accused of lip syncing in her Grammys performance

Cardi B absolutely killed the Grammys and we don't think we'll ever be able to recover.
From her show-stopping vintage Theirry Mugler gown – which inspired some hilarious Cardi B memes – to her, um, let's call it PDA with husband Offset on the red carpet, Cardi B was arguably the artist of the night. However, it was her performance that really got everyone talking.
The "I Like It" rapper slipped into a diamond-encrusted catsuit to perform "Money" on a bedazzled piano. Beginning with an attention-grabbing intro from pianist Chloe Flower, Cardi twerked and gyrated on top of the piano, before grabbing some feathers and turning herself into some sort of hip-hop burlesque dancer. Honestly, would we expect anything less from her?
Although her performance was out-of-this-world, apparently some people believe she was lip syncing throughout. She wouldn't dare, though… would she?
Well, here's what the internet had to say.

Cardi B slayed that lipsync! Shanté you stay— Jessica Simpson’s Foot (@lindsayl0whan) February 11, 2019
Despite the lip syncing controversy, it didn't seem to effect Cardi's winning streak. Cardi won her first Grammy EVER for Best Rap Album with Invasion of Privacy, after being nominated in five categories this year. She is the first solo woman to ever win the prize (Lauryn Hill won with her group Fugees back in 1997).
