He didn't give the devil a lapdance like he does in the video for his 'Montero' single, but Lil Nas X gave one of the most provocative musical performances in recent Saturday Night Live history this weekend — and that was before he split his pants while working a stripper pole.
The malfunction occurred during a steamy performance of 'Montero (Call Me by Your Name),' which began with him working a hell-themed set in a flame-emblazoned, physique-bearing leather outfit, accompanied by six shirtless male dancers, one of the whom licked his neck mid-song. As the performance neared its close, Nas began working the pole, and as he squatted down toward the floor, yep, he split his pants. After a comically stunned "Oh NO!" look followed by a priceless embarrassed smile, he finished the song as one long crotch grab, without missing a note or a cue.

Twitter didn't miss its opportunity, and Nas quickly got in on the action himself…https://twitter.com/LilNasX/status/1396318992629907457https://twitter.com/LilNasX/status/1396318976209264641https://twitter.com/BLAIRHATESU/status/1396320424061857792https://twitter.com/MessyMindofMe/status/1396319705225482240https://twitter.com/LilNasX/status/1396319648933683205
Initial reactions were mostly positive…https://twitter.com/atira_atira_/status/1396340718998749184https://twitter.com/crankykite/status/1396330879815979008https://twitter.com/LauraWKanter/status/1396339477774278656
The second performance, of his new single 'Sun Goes Down,' was much more straightforward, as he sang the song in a sleek white suit embellished with fake bullet wounds over his heart and stomach. He finished the song with a big smile, calling out to the audience, "I love you all!"
He also appeared in a pre-recorded Pride-themed video sketch earlier in the show, taking a verse while wearing a pink outfit bedecked with a giant-feathered headdress. Watch below.
