Lil Nas X was the musical guest on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” hosted by Anya Taylor-Joy. Nas started the episode in a musical Pride-themed sketch to raise awareness for the LBGTQ+ community before he went on to do a performance of his own. While on stage in the middle of performing his hit single “Montero,” Lil Nas X stunned audience members as his pants ripped during a choreographed routine. For wardrobe, his background dancers paired a black headscarf with patent black joggers while Nas wore lace up leather pants with a blazing flame graphic.
