With her baby pink getup, the trendsetter wore a long and lustrous black lace front wig with a deep center part.
She was made up with pink shadow covering her eyelids and her signature heavy black winged eyeliner.
The mother-of-one played up her ample cleavage in the strapless dress and she wore exposed pink briefs underneath.
Large, round drop earrings hung from her ears and the entertainer displayed an excessively long, bedazzled, pointy manicure.
At another point in the show, which she hosted for the second year in a row, Nicki put on her music hat.
She delivered a heartfelt, poignant performance cloaked in a floor-length puffy black coat.
As she transitioned songs, debuting a portion of a tune called Big Difference, she ditched her outer layer.
A sheer, stone-covered black dress with a bra-like bodice was revealed and her black thong underwear showed under the see-through material.

For her ultimate fashion statement of the evening, the longtime music artist wore a monochrome brown getup.
Her figure was hugged in yet another sheer outfit – also another catsuit.
It had a mock neck and long sleeves, and the fashionista topped it with a leather trench coat.
The style maven teamed the look with pointy-toe, caramel-colored, knee-high boots.
She accessorized with a pair of large, deep brown-tinted shield sunglasses that obscured her dark eyes.
Nicki’s hair was also different as she modeled two space buns separated by a straight middle part.
There was a chopstick poked through either one, and the rest of the hair flowed freely in soft, tightly textured waves.
