Lil Nas X has once again transformed the Grammys scene.

The groundbreaking musician performed a medley of his hit singles at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, including “Dead Right Now,” “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and “Industry Baby.”

He began the performance by standing center stage in a shimmering black cape with a set of similarly dressed drummers in a neat row behind him, as the stage screen projected a moving galaxy.

Removing the cape, Nas revealed a dazzling one-sleeve crop top and sparkly black pants, which he wore as he sang his hit song, “Montero (Call Me by Your Name).”

The last time Nas performed at the awards show was in 2020, when he sang his Grammy-winning debut single, ‘Old Town Road,’ in an explosive production with Billy Ray. Cyrus, BTS, Mason Ramsey, Diplo and Young Thug.

He has since released his first studio album, Montero, which is named after his first name, Montero Lamar Hill.

In a 2021 interview with Variety, Nas talked about getting out of his head in order to create the album during the pandemic. “Honestly, I think the pandemic has helped me get out of the idea of ​​trying to please everyone and the idea of ​​’He’s a cool gay man, he’s an acceptable gay man'”, he told the outlet. “I used to see things like that as a compliment, but it’s not. It just means people like you and they never become legends. I wanted to be even more authentic in my music and letting people into my life. I have a lot more confidence in myself now – in my music, myself, my sexuality, the things I believe I stand for.”

Tonight, the rapper is up for a Golden Gramophone in five categories: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Music Video and Best Melodic Rap Performance.
