    While Cardi B’s performance at the Grammys on Sunday was an absolute delight to watch, it was her pianist who has taken the Twitterverse by storm.


    The pianist, named Chloe Flower, gave some scene-stealing moves while playing the piano for Cardi B when she took to the stage to perform her latest single, “Money.”


    As Cardi B performed the rap song and danced with her backup dancers, Flower did her thing behind the piano keys.


    Impressed by her badass piano-playing and mesmerizing moves, netizens immediately took to social media to investigate more about the musician and shower her with praises.


    According to her Instagram account bio, Flower is a classical pianist, composer, and activist.

    After the show, the grateful pianist posted a video of herself playing at the Grammys on her Instagram account.

    “What an honor. Thank you @iamcardib for having me on stage with you at the Grammys and for graciously allowing me to add my style of music to yours! #cardib#cardibgrammys#pianist#chloeflower#piano,” Flower wrote.

    A graduate of Juilliard School, Flower is an artist herself and is currently signed to Def Jam Records. She has recorded with numerous artists such as Celine Dion, Timbaland, and Nas, Entertainment Weekly reports.

    She also composed the scores for 2015 documentary, “A Ballerina’s Tale” and the Mike Epps Netflix comedy special, “Don’t Take It Personal” and scored ads for Nike and Levi’s.

    For those who can’t get enough of the viral musician, Flower’s music can be streamed via Spotify.
