She killed it.
Nicki Minaj performed Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards alongside Ariana Grande. First, the pop icon treated fans to a Twitter-seizing walk down the VMA red carpet. 

Walking in with boyfriend and Philly rapper Meek Mill, her blue dress was an instant social hit. 

Grande and Minaj performed "Side to Side," from the former's Dangerous Woman album, released in May. 
Elsewhere, Diddy opened the ceremony by presenting the Moonman for best hip-hop video to Drake for his iconic "Hotline Bling." He bested Desiigner, Bryson Tiller, Chance the Rapper, and 2 Chainz.

"Drake is stuck in traffic," Diddy joked. "Drake: Come get this." 

The two rappers feuded publicly in 2014, though TMZ reports this week that two have since made peace.
