Saweetie is image of 20s showgirl and Lil Nas X rocks schoolgirl skirt during New York Jingle Ball

Saweetie was the image of a Roaring 20s showgirl and Lil Nas X rocked a metallic schoolgirl skirt at Madison Square Garden this Friday for the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball.

The annual concert has been winging its way through the country on tour with stops including Los Angeles and Chicago, and Saweetie has been a constant presence.

Another mainstay of this year’s tour has been Doja Cat, who had to withdraw from the New York engagement to quarantine after two members of her production team were diagnosed with COVID-19.

All that glitters: Lil Nas X rocked a metallic schoolgirl skirt

Saweetie hit the stage in a throwback chic bodysuit that was perfectly fitted to her sensational figure for her latest Jingle Ball appearance this Friday.

The shimmering ensemble featured jewels set against a black backdrop and arranged in a pattern reminiscent of Art Deco, adding to the 1920s allure.

Her getup was cut high enough in the back for her to emphasize her curves to full effect when she turned around and stuck her derriere out toward the audience. 

She slipped into a set of fishnet stockings that glinted as the lights hit them and held a bedazzled microphone, ramping up the glitz factor of the look.

Saweetie, whose real name is Diamonte Harper, added an extra touch of dazzle to the ensemble with a pair of ornate drop earrings for her Madison Square Garden.

The sizzling sensation could be seen strutting her stuff in front of a large array of lit up letter spelling out ICY, the  name of her second EP which she dropped in 2019.

Her combination of the glittering bodysuit and the style of the letters brought back memories of Renee Zellweger singing Roxie in the Oscar-winning movie musical Chicago which was set in the 1920s.

During her performances she was accompanied by a set of female backup performers wearing black sequined bodysuits and matching fur wraps.

The 22-year-old pop act, who shot to fame with the smash hit country single Old Town Road, gave a nod to his roots by popping on a gleaming cowboy hat.

She selected a see-through black top with silver sequined pinstripes, but in a modern touch she left it open to bare her black bra-lette and trim midriff.
