How did the internet feel about Taraji P. Henson’s 2020 American Music Awards entrance medley? It seems people were simply loving witnessing the actress break it down.
“Taraji Henson was on fire with that opening,” one Twitter user gushed. “Imagine if Cardi B and Taraji P. Henson made a movie together? Twin spirits right there,” wrote another. “Ok Taraji P. Henson with the dance moves!!! she kicks off the show with some fun tributes to Black artists (Prince, Jay-Z, Megan Thee Stallion) and some jokes with the cardboard cutout celebs in the audience,” wrote a third.

Meanwhile, a select few were slightly critical of the actress’ full-fledged intro. “Y’all, they REALLY let Taraji P. Henson “dance (?)” to a crowd of literally no one!” one Twitter user quipped. But that sort of talk was quickly quashed. “Not yall tryna slander taraji penda henson for doing the wap dance,” another user posted. Truly, it felt like if you couldn’t enjoy the Hidden Figures star tearing up the stage then that’s on you.
“We just hope to make 2020 a little brighter with our show tonight!” the award show tweeted. “The AMAs brings together the music community to celebrate what really drives all artists — the fans,” Henson said in an earlier statement (per Entertainment Tonight). Henson’s moves really felt like the embodiment of that: just something fun for the fans!
