Lil Nas X BET Awards 2021 - Show

Lil Nas X has sent the internet into overdrive as the 22-year-old artist took the stage to perform “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” at the 2021 BET Awards.

Wearing a gold Egyptian pharaoh costume with an image of a sphinx behind him, Lil Nas X tore the stage up at Sunday’s show as he gave a performance inspired by the video for Michael Jackson’s “Remember The Time.”

The openly gay artist earned a standing ovation for his bold performance. And, of course, Black Twitter went up. Many noted how apt the moment was for Black gay visibility, especially during Pride Month.
