He’s just out here getting cuter.

Proving yet again that being extra is the best way to be, Lil Nas X changed costumes not once, not twice, but three times during his 2022 Grammys performance. Every look sparkled and made me squeal loud enough to wake up my dog. The rapper is truly just out here getting cuter.

Following his red carpet appearance, Lil Nas X started his performance very covered up. The star sported a full-length cap over long pants and a jacket with a wide, high neck. The ‘fit glittered, of course, because Lil Nas X is a star and must always glitter when on stage.

This wasn’t the first cape worn at the Grammys, but it was my favorite because it was a sign we were getting a costume change. (No one, not even Lil Nas X, can twerk in a cape.)

And what a costume change it was! Performance ‘fit No. 2 was an asymmetrical crystal crop top that I want so badly, I really don’t know what to do.

It does appear that Lil Nas X was able to get in and out of his ‘fits fast because he kept the same pair of sparkling bootcut pants on throughout his performance.

For the final look of his performance, Lil Nas X switched into a gorgeously embellished jacket that managed to channel the coolest drummer ever and Michael Jackson at the height of his career. *Major* “Welcome to the Black Parade” vibes over here.

Like I said, it’s not a Lil Nas X performance without a little bit of booty. In his final outfit of the night, the rapper truly let loose and did the damn thing.
