Every time Lil Nas X takes the stage, he doesn’t disappoint with his live presence and art direction. That was the case for his performance at the Grammys on Sunday (Jan. 26) where he commanded the stage with new additions to his hit track “Old Town Road.” With a fresh verse performed by the man of the hour, Lil Nas X also contracted the guest services of BTS while Diplo to Mason Ramsey to Billy Ray Cyrus’ had their musical input.
The rising star also paid homage to Kobe Bryant by featuring his No. 24 Los Angeles Lakers jersey. As the performance progressed, X switched melodies to perform “Rodeo” with surprise guest Nas.
The 20-year-old is nominated for Best Rap Sung/Performance (“Panini”), Best New Artist, and Album of the Year (7).
