When they are up for the challenge, girls can definitely show boys that they can also take the stage pretty well. This was definitely the case when Iggy Azalea went up to the stage during the 2014 American Music Awards on Nov. 23, 2014. Read on for further details.

The 24-year-old Aussie rapper was able to show her stuff as she performed for the event with her singles "Fancy" and "Beg For It," as well as a rendition of "Booty" with Jennifer Lopez. She even received two awards later, such as the AMA 2014 award for Best Rap Artist and for Best Rap/Hiphop Album. In the process, Iggy took down her rapper rivals and two known rappers in the music industry, Drake, 28, and Eminem, 42.

Feeling rather emotional as she was called and stood onstage with her mentor T.I. to get her award, Iggy hugged and thanked T.I for helping her out and giving her the drive in finally winning the first two music awards she had ever received.

This award is the first award I've ever won in my entire life, and means so much to me that it is for best hip-hop, because that's what inspired me to move to America and pursue my dreams. It's what helped me when I was a teenager to escape and to get through my life and to better times. (via People)

She even managed to squeeze out some words for Drake and Eminem.

“It means so much that I can stand here against Eminem and Drake and come out with this.”

Eminem recently made the news as he made a pass on Iggy and threatening to rape her with his new song “Vegas.” Iggy wasted no time in making her own comments on the song via Twitter. No doubt, Iggy was insulted and disgusted, and she even mentioned her brother who was big fan of Eminem, yet had his sister being threatened of rape by the rapper himself. She also mentioned of how women in music nowadays can handle any dose of harassment and criticism thrown on them.
