Lil Nas X took the stage with Billy Ray Cyrus, K-pop band BTS, Diplo and Mason Ramsey during the Grammys for a brilliant remix of “Old Town Road”.
From the beginning of the masterpiece rendition, Lil Nas X could be seen singing in a decor that included a Lakers jersey with Bryant’s number 24, obviously, that was an honour to the just past on Basketball legend.
We saw it as a discreet yet powerful nod to Kobe Bryant, whose death was announced only a few hours before the Grammys on Sunday.
The 2020 Grammys event started with a moving homage to the basketball icon by Alicia Keys and Boyz II Men.
However, the ceremony was taking place at the Staples Center, the home venue for the Los Angeles Lakers, Bryant’s team.
