AceShowbiz - Lil Nas X and Tyler, the Creator are among stars heating up the BET Awards 2021. While the "MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)" singer ended his gig by making out onstage, the 30-year-old rapper delivered his performance in the middle of a simulated windstorm.
At the Sunday, June 27 event, Lil Nas sang his chart-topping single in an ancient Egyptian theme while being joined by an influx of dancers. Before ending his performance, he soul-kissed one of the dancers atop a staircase next to a throne.
Many on Twitter have since praised the "Old Town Road" hitmaker. One in particular raved, "i wasn't prepared for how proud i'd be of @LilNasX. as a gay man of colour who grew up watching BET, to see two men kissing at the BET Awards is vindicating! not to mention two that are so richly melaninated!! DO YOUR THING MONTERO." Another gushed, "Lil Nas X said 'Happy Pride, haters!!' at the whole BET awards. I love it."
As for Tyler, he performed "Lumberjack" by recreating its music video. During his performance, the MC first rolled up in an old Rolls Royce. After he got out of the car, he started firing off the lyrics to his "Call Me If You Get Lost" track before getting blown away by the storm.
Also taking the stage of BET Awards 2021 was Megan Thee Stallion. The raptress, who won Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and Video of the Year alongside Cardi B for "WAP" at the event, performed her song "Thot S**t" in a black latex bodysuit. She completed her sexy look by rocking a pair of black sunglasses and a golden necklace.
Other performers at the BET Awards 2021 were Swizz Beatz, H.E.R., Lil Durk, Lil Baby and Migos and Cardi B, who debuted her baby bump as she confirmed her second pregnancy with Offset.
