AceShowbiz - Fresh off scoring five nominations at the 61st Grammy Awards, Cardi B took the stage at Allstate Arena in Chicago to headline the annual B96 Jingle Bash concert on Saturday night, December 8. But instead of celebrating her milestone, the Bronx rapper decided to address her recent split from husband Offset during her performance.
Cardi was performing "MotorSport", her collaboration with Migos and Nicki Minaj, alongside a slew of backup dancers when she changed a line from the song to rap about their split. Altering the line where she rapped about how she and the Migos member "should sell that porn," the femcee instead spitted, "I turn Offset on/ I told him the other day yeah we gon get divorced."

The lyrics change aside, Cardi successfully entertained the audience at the event. Besides "MotorSport", the mother of one performed an array of her hits such as "I Like It", "Bartier Cardi", "Ring" as well as her Maroon 5 collaboration "Girls Like You". She closed out her headlining set with a bang, delivering a rendition of her breakout hit "Bodak Yellow".
Also taking the stage at the annual event were fellow Grammy nominees Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. While the Canadian heartthrob had the crowd swooning with a performance of "Treat You Better" and "In My Blood", the Cuban songstress opened the festival with a rendition of her award-winning mega hit "Havana".
Aside from performing at the Jingle Bash, the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" singers have been hitting the road together for iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour as well as additional holiday concerts. Talking about the former Fifth Harmony member backstage at Jingle Ball, Shawn said, "One day, I'm sure that we'll write another song together. Millions of songs together."
