Lil Nas X performs onstage at the BET Awards 2021 at Microsoft Theater on June 27, 2021 in Los Angeles, California.

Lil Nas X did not come to play at this year’s BET Awards. At the end of his Egyptian motif performance of his latest hit, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” the artist turned a few heads.

Lil Nas X took center stage to unveil his gilded pharaoh look, complete with snake headpiece and gilded armbands. The sequence was visually pleasing, but it was when the 22-year-old climbed up the steps that captured everyone’s attention. He grabbed two dancers and fully made out with one of them, garnering audible screams and cheers from the crowd. Some folks even stood up after his closing of the performance.
