The 50-year-old actress, as host, came out with a bang as she showed off her skills on stage to a medley of popular songs, including Prince , Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion and so many more, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
“Taraji is the real deal. I just love her and her energy! Alllllll day! #AMAs2020,” one fan wrote about her performance, while another added, “I love that Taraji Henson’s opening of the #AMAs2020 is basically all of us dancing in the kitchen when we are cooking.”
After her performance, Taraji opened up the show with a funny monologue, saying she was just happy to be off the couch!
