The singer, who was introduced by host Jamie Foxx to the stage, kicked off his performance with a rendition of “Come Through and Chill,” which originally features J. Cole. He then rolled into his more uptempo single, “Skywalker.” “Cap and a stem, catch a wave on us (splish) Take a shot, make a friend, just enjoy the moment / I’m Luke Skywalkin’ on these haters (splish) / Celebrate every day like a birthday / Good things come to those that wait up (splish) / But don’t wait to jump in too long / Don’t sleep, you gotta stay up (splish) / Don’t, don’t sleep, you gotta stay up” he sang in his all white suit.
As previously noted, Miguel performed singles from his previously released project, War & Leisure, which was released in Dec. 2017. The album reportedly topped the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in its first week and sold a total of 40,000 units.
