Lil Nas X made quite the splash this weekend as the musical guest on SNL.

For the Season 46 finale of SNL, Lil Nas X performed “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” while wearing an all-leather fire-themed outfit. But a wardrobe malfunction occurred when he squatted down in front of a stripper pole and his pants ripped in the upper thigh area.

For the rest of the performance, Lil Nax X continued to sing and dance while trying to keep the rip from being too noticeable.

This has to be the gayest thing I’ve ever seen on SNL 🙂


The Grammy winner followed that up with a performance of his latest single, “Sun Goes Down,” which went smoothly and no mishaps.

Lil Nas X did also took part in a prerecorded Pride Month song titled “It’s Pride Again.” SNL’s queer cast members – Bowen Yang, Kate McKinnon, Punkie Johnson, and Taylor-Joy – joined Nas X for a music video about how exciting it is for Pride to return after the pandemic.
