Lil Nas X Provides A Memorable Performance On SNL

Several oiled up dancers and a wardrobe malfunction sums up the performance.


Saturday Night Live (SNL) celebrated their season 46 finale with host Anya Taylor Joy and musical performance by Lil Nas X who stole the show in a splitting way.

Lil Nas x is notorious for his comedic yet insanely magical performances, (just take a look at his 2019 VMAs performance) but his SNL performance will not be forgotten easily. The Old Town Road singer performed two tracks, his latest single Sun Goes Down and Montero (Call Me By Your Name) both showcasing Lil Nas X’s charm.

Dressed head to toe in leather Lil Nas X performed Montero (Call Me By Your Name).  Accompanied by several oiled-up dancers and a stripper pole in center stage, the singer provided a steamy watch. But maybe the best part of the performance was Lil Nas X’s pole dance. Diving into a low drop SNL’s camera zoomed in as the singer looked slightly embarrassed and spent the rest of the performance holding his crotch. Turns out the singer’s trousers had split, yet being the professional he is, carried on until the end.

Lil Nas took to Twitter to comment on his pants splitting saying, “NOT MY PANTS RIPPED ON LIVE ON TV.”

Montero (Call Me By Your Name) caused waves of controversy when it was released back in April upset due to its religious connotations and sexual nature. Lil Nas X is also no stranger to criticism either, with the release of the Satan shoes being blasted by many including Nike.
