Before performing at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden in New York, Cardi B took a trip downtown to the courts for her scheduled misdemeanor arraignment. This is all because of her alleged involvement in a fight at a strip club back in August. But Queen Cardi was released scot-free, and that was the exact moment when she found out about her five Grammy Award nominations.
On Friday night, the rapper tweeted a video captured by NBC News of her walking out of the court house, when a reporter congratulates her on her Grammy nominations. Dumbstruck, all she could say was, "I am? How many nominations?" And as she exited, she let out a very Cardi B reaction that only she can explain.
Cardi captioned the video saying, "I need a do over."

But, of course, her ever-supportive fans replied that this was the one of the most on-brand, iconically Cardi moments, ever and that this is just "perfect."
