Missy Elliott gave a surprise live performance at the AMAs when she joined the Brazilian singer Anitta onstage for a performance of the song “Lobby.” Anitta is nominated for Favorite female Latin Artist, and this song with Elliott is the third single from her new album Versions of Me.

Anitta had on a cool velvet-looking catsuit, while Elliott wore a stylish Versace suit along with big glasses, a cool hairstyle and not to mention lots of natural swagger. Anitta won the AMA she was nominated for and is also nominated for the 2023 Grammy Award for Best New Artist.

“My good sis @Anitta is so much fun!” Elliott wrote on her Instagram story after the performance aired. “A real one! And congratulations on your win you so deserve it,” she also said.

It’s a bit of a misnomer to call Anitta a “New Artist,” as she has been active in her home country since 2010. Though she began collaborating with more international artists like Iggy Azalea and Major Lazer in 2016, which likely raised her profile more.
