Normani Enlisted Teyana Taylor to Pay Tribute to Janet Jackson During Her VMAs Performance

Teyena Taylor had the best seat in the house at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards. The singer and dancer made an unexpected appearance during Normani's elaborately choreographed performance of "Wild Side," which ended with Normani performing a gravity-defying lap dance to a strapped-down Taylor. The viral moment appeared to be an homage to Janet Jackson, who famously offered a similar routine to various lucky audience members at her 2001 All For You Tour, specifically as she performed the song "Would You Mind." Following the performance, Teyana promptly tweeted, "Surpriseeeeeee." Watch back the truly wild award show moment ahead.
