Most Nicki Minaj performances feature a lot of butts and backup dancers, but the rapper decided to slow things down for her performance at the American Music Awards on Sunday. For "Bed of Lies," the latest single off her upcoming album, "The Pinkprint," Minaj was joined on stage by Skylar Grey who sings the song's hook.

Grey, in all white, sat by the piano as Minaj, in an impressive bridal-looking gown, did what she does best. The performance got the two a standing ovation.

Minaj debuted "Bed of Lies" earlier this month during her performance at MTV's European Music Awards. A studio version of the song leaked online last week.

Later in the night, Minaj performed a lively rendition of her summer hit "Bang Bang" with Ariana Grande and Jessie J.
