Megan Thee Stallion was one of the big winners at Sunday’s 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, taking home the Best New Artist honor as well as Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her duet with Beyoncé, “Savage.” But it was another Megan duet, “WAP,” that won the night, when she and Cardi B joined forces for their first-ever televised performance of their X-rated sex-positivity anthem.
Megan and Cardi toned down the raunchy song as much as they could in order to make it past the CBS censors. Even the radio edit, which usually features the chorus “wet and gushy,” was changed to the more PG-13 “wet, wet, wet” (which seemed like a double-standard, since a sanitary napkin commercial with the verb “gush” aired during the Grammys not much later). But the performance was still racy enough that it didn’t air until after 10 p.m. on the East Coast and was proceeded by host Trevor Noah’s comical warning, “If you have small children in the room, just tell them it’s a song about giving a cat a bath.”
