Nicki Minaj hit the stage with Ariana Grande and Jessie J to open tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. Nicki knocked out a performance of “Anaconda,” sans the boa constrictor that supposedly bit one of her dancers during rehearsals, before joining Ariana and Jessie for their hit “Bang Bang.”

Nicki wasn’t nominated for any awards this year, but that’s probably just because the video for “Anaconda” dropped less than a week ago. She is also set to perform again later with Usher.
