But the highlight of the performance was surely the moment Lizzo turned away from the camera only to face it with a flute that seemed to come out of nowhere, and simultaneously play the instrument while twerking.

Lizzo’s performance was well-received, most notably by Rihanna, who could be seen in the crowd enjoying the set.

Lizzo released her third studio album Cuz I Love You in April. The project features guest appearances from Gucci Mane and Missy Elliott, the latter of which appears on the track “Tempo.”
