The former Fifth Harmony member’s live rendition of her fast-rising hit “Motivation” was one of the night’s highlights — a well-rehearsed, hard-hitting performance that left no one wondering about Normani’s A-game.
After an introduction from Lenny Kravitz and a similarly strong performance from H.E.R., Normani and her dance crew sprang into action. Lowered from above into a pastel-painted basketball court, Normani’s team busted out twerks, cartwheels, and no shortage of swagger to bring “Motivation” to life.
When it was all over, Normani took a few extra well-deserved seconds to catch her breath and gaze out into the Prudential Center crowd, taking it all in.
After achieving a pair of top-10 singles on the Hot 100 alongside Sam Smith (“Dancing With a Stranger”) and Khalid (“Love Lies”), “Motivation” is Normani’s first hit in the spotlight by herself. It sits at No. 33 on the Hot 100 tally dated Aug. 31.
