Taraji P. Henson Twerks & Dances Around Stage In Epic American Music Awards 2020 Opening!

Taraji P. Henson nailed her opening number for the 2020 American Music Awards!

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!
