The award was presented to her by none other than Bruno Mars kneeling on presenting , who pointed out that Jackson is the first black female ever to receive it. Pretty amazing. Before she accepted the award though, she brought down the house with an epic performance. She hit the stage with her famous three words: “Gimme a beat!” Jackson the launched into singing “Nasty.”
Flanked by back up dancers, she showed off her impressive moves before launching into 1993’s “Throb.” Needless to say, everyone couldn’t get enough.
