In these sad, trying times, there’s only one ray of light our world has: Normani. The former Fifth Harmony member turned Queen of Pop delivered a knockout performance of her new song “Motivation” at the 2019 MTV VMAs Monday night (August 26), and by the end of it I realized she’s going to save us all. Not only will she save music (that’s a given), but she’ll save the environment, the 2020 election—everything. We’ve found it people: the cure to all our problems. And her name is Normani Kordei Hamilton.
Why, you ask? Just look at tonight’s VMAs performance. The vocals! The precise dancing! The unexplainable X-factor! We haven’t encountered a pop star like this since Britney Spears, Beyoncé, or Lady Gaga. Those three legends have singlehandedly kept the world in order with their bops and wigs and tours. But they can’t do it alone. They need a new pop icon to help maintain our planet’s balance, but no one has been up for the task. No one until Normani.
Normani has it. She has the dancing chops to keep gas prices at an all-time low; the vocals to ensure everyone recycles; and a fire in the eyes that will compel every child in America to eat their vegetables. What? Did you think it was our elected officials who made this country a success? Pfft! It was pop girls. It’s always been pop girls.
Check out Normani’s performance for yourself, below. Consider this her 2020 presidential campaign announcement. (I kid, but, ugh, can you imagine?!)
Obviously, fans on the Internet are just as entranced, bewildered, and gobsmacked as I am.
I know Ariana Grande said God is a woman, but I didn’t think we’d learn her name in our lifetime. But we have! Repeat after me: Normani, Normani, Normani.
