Lil Nas X is known for slaying award shows and he did it again tonight (Sept. 12) at the MTV Video Music Awards.

After being introduced by Emmy winner Billy Porter, another trailblazer in the Black queer community, X  kicked off his performance with a marching band and then jumped into his no. 2 Billboard hit “Industry Baby.” Jack Harlow also joined him on the stage before he jumped into “Montero (Call Me by Your Name).”

Surrounded by dancers in tight, pink shorts, Lil Nas X grinded and popped all over the stage. See a clip of the performance below:

It’s been an epic year for the rapper. Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” was his second number one hit on the Billboard 100 after his breakout smash “Old Town Road.” Released in March and noted for its LGBTQ+ themes, MONTERO will serve as the title track for his upcoming album, which will be released on Sept. 17.
