Iggy Azalea performed ‘Fancy’ at the BET Awards on June 29 and had the crowd on their feet immediately — even Snoop Dogg was bopping his head!
First things first, Iggy Azalea is the realest. She hit the stage at the Nokia Theater in LA on June 29 for the BET Awards and blew the crowd away with a bombastic performance of “Fancy,” her mega-hit fourth single off of her debut album, The New Classic.
Iggy Azalea’s BET Awards Performance Of ‘Fancy’ Even Had Nicki Minaj Impressed
Iggy initially hit the stage for her verse on T.I.‘s “No Mediocre,” but he melted in the background once her verse was up as the track transitioned to “Fancy.” Iggy owned the stage, the audience totally captivated. Even Nicki Minaj was dancing! Nicki Minaj. If Nicki Minaj is into one of your jams, I think that you can probably go home at that point because you’ve peaked. Even Snoop Dogg was bopping his head, and everybody in the audience was asking, “who dat, who dat?” along with Iggy. So. Fun.
Anyway, Iggy looked as amazing as she sounded on that huge stage, with black leggings adorned with hanging over-large safety pins, metallic sneakers, and a cut-out panel crop top. She wore her hair in a high pony with braided sides that resembled a mohawk, and coupled with her glowing, pale skin and a bright fuschia lip, her look was simple with edgy details that went perfectly with her performance.
Iggy Azalea’s Career Is Not Slowing Down Any Time Soon
Iggy’s skyrocketing career is not slowing down any time soon. “Fancy” was released on Feb. 17, 2014, and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. When Ariana Grande‘s “Problem” was released — on which Iggy features — Iggy occupied the top two spots on the charts for both “Fancy” and “Problem,” and was the first female rapper ever to have two songs concurrently in the top five of the Hot 100 chart. Not bad.
It would have been awesome to see Iggy perform “Work” with T.I., who was also present at the BET Awards. “Work” was the first single off of The New Classic, but it was dope.

So, HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Iggy’s performance? Some people thought that Nicki was dissing Iggy in her acceptance speech for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist — do you think she was? Because she looked like she was jamming to Iggy! Let us know!
