Mary J. Blige is riding a wave of success right now. The veteran songstress released her latest album Good Morning Gorgeous to critical acclaim and accolades from fans earlier this month. Then she subsequently stole the show at the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show with her performance alongside hip-hop heavyweights Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar. In addition to her music endeavors, Mary also just wrapped the second season of Starz's hit drama Power Book II: Ghost. To cap her stellar Black History Month, all of Mary's passions collided on Saturday night at the 53rd NAACP Image Awards.

Blige took home the statue for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series for her role as Monet Tejada in Power Book II: Ghost for the second year in a row. This latest award marks Mary's 10th NAACP Image Award and the 15th anniversary of receiving her first two Image Awards for Outstanding Female Artist and Outstanding Music Video in 2007.

Mary J. didn't just come through to add another award to her trophy case, however. The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul contributed a performance of her current single "Good Morning Gorgeous" and her oldie but goodie "Love No Limit" to the program hosted by Anthony Anderson.

MJB looked flawless as ever in a fierce purple floor-length gown with a sparkling bra and cutout midriff that exposed a little skin. Recorded live at the Apollo Theatre in New York City with her band, Mary performed for an empty house due to COVID-19 precautions. You wouldn't know it, though, because she brought the energy like it was a sold-out venue.

She poured all her feels into "Good Morning Gorgeous" and pulled at the heartstrings with her passionate delivery of the sometimes heavy lyrics. She lightened things up with an abbreviated version of "Love No Limit" from her debut album What's The 411? to end the performance. Mary somehow managed to make the 30-year-old song sound brand new.

Although she may not have been wearing her signature thigh-high boots or doing her world-famous Mary Bop dance, Mary J. Blige wowed everyone watching her sing on the 53rd NAACP Image Awards nonetheless. See what we mean when you press play below and relive the moment.
