Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé Had a Twerk-Off During Their First-Ever Live Performance of "Feeling Myself"

The Tidal X: 10/20 concert was so many levels of epic we can't even think straight.

Last night's Tidal X: 10/20 concert had a stacked line-up—including Mr. Tidal himself Jay Z, Usher, Lil Wayne, Tinashe, Nick Jonas, and more—but let's be real, no one could hold a candle to Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj when they hit the stage together to perform their deliciously ego-centric anthem "Feeling Myself" for the first time ever.

Minaj—clad in a black bodycon playsuit and lacey black tights—started things off solo, backed by a troop of dancers. As the crowd held its breath for Yoncé, she emerged slowly in fierce-strut fashion with her own squad, donning a retro pink romper, fishnets, and her Met Gala pony.

The bodacious pair proceeded to have a twerk-tastic dance-off with their respective girl groups before uniting to remind us exactly why, together, they're the poster girls for flawless. 

Having been among the #blessed crowd, we can ensure you that there wasn't a seated derrière in the house. Prepare to have your mind blown.
