Taking the stage on Sunday night (Aug. 28), the proud plus-sized pop star began her performance with About Damn Time before swiftly jumping into 2 Be Loved. With dancers in tow, Lizzodressed in spectacularly shimmering pink one-piecedanced round the stage while belting the lyrics to her fan-favorite number, 2 Be Loved.
How am I likely to lov somebody else/ Whn I dont like myself? Like, ooh, she raps in her signature sing-songy delivery. Guess I better figure out how to such as this, ooh/ It could take my very existence merely to do/ He call me Melly, he squeeze my belly/ Im too embarrassed to state I love it/ Girl, is this my boo?/ Thats why Im askin you cause you understand Ive experienced.
During her performance, the stage transitioned between a litany of neon pink, yellow, and blue lights VFX behind her. Lizzos fiery version of 2 Be Loved was immediately met with a standing ovation from the crowd because the song finished. It had been aSpecialperformance, indeed.
This season, Lizzo has been nominated for five VMA Awards, including awards for Artist of the entire year and Song of the entire year for About Damn Time.
