He didn’t give the devil a lapdance like he does in the video for his “Montero” single, but Lil Nas X gave one of the most provocative musical performances in recent “Saturday Night Live” history this weekend — and that was before he split his pants while working a stripper pole.
The malfunction occurred during a steamy performance of “Montero (Call Me by Your Name),” which found him working a hell-themed set reminiscent of the boundary-breaking video. Nas, clad in a flame-emblazoned, physique-bearing leather outfit, was accompanied by six shirtless male dancers, one of the whom licked his neck mid-song, another who turned himself upside down, spread-eagled in front of the singer. As the song neared its close, Nas began working the pole, and as he squatted down toward the floor, yep, he split his pants. After a comically stunned look on his face, followed by a priceless embarrassed smile, he finished the song, basically as one long crotch grab. (Watch the full performance below.)
Twitter didn’t miss its opportunity, and Nas quickly got in on the action himself…
The second performance, of his new single “Sun Goes Down,“ was much more straightforward, as he sang the song in a sleek white suit embellished with a fake bullet wounds over his heart and stomach. His three-pice band were also clad in white suits, but all wore painters’ caps. Nas finished the song — which arrived Thursday night accompanied by a heartwarming video that sees him encouraging his outsider, high school-era former self — with a big smile, calling out to the audience, “I love you all!”
He also appeared in a pre-recorded Pride-themed video sketch earlier in the show, taking a verse while wearing a flamboyant pink outfit bedecked with a giant-feathered headdress. (Watch below.)
