Lil Nas X experienced an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction as he performed during the Saturday Night Live finale, with his pants ripping in the middle of his routine.
The singer took to the stage in a leather cut out crop top and matching trousers to perform his latest release Montero (Call Me By Your Name) on the late-night comedy show.
Proving his hips don’t lie and busting moves against a strippers pole, Lil Nas X quickly realised that he’d gyrated too hard and had caused his outfit to split – and his face said it all.
Lil Nas X swiftly placed his hand over his crotch to mask the tear from the audience and carried on with the number, but the moment didn’t go unnoticed by viewers.
Following his performance, the artist appeared to be mortified by the ordeal.
‘NOT MY PANTS RIPPED ON LIVE ON TV,’ he tweeted. ‘OMFG NO.
‘i wanted to do my pole routine so bad this what i get lmaoo.’
Lil Nas X’s fans were in stitches over the accident and rushed to Twitter to comment while praising his appearance on the programme.
‘Lil Nas X really ripped his pants and kept going,’ wrote one. ‘That’s how you perform!!’
‘Lil Nas X’s reaction to ripping his pants down the crotch-taint on live national television is honestly iconic and relatable,’ penned another. ‘Major 2021 vibes. A mood for the year.’
Ahead of his appearance on Saturday Night Live, the singer revealed to People that he was taking a vocal rest.
‘I feel amazing,’ he told the publication. ‘I’m going to go out there and just murder it.’
Saturday Night Live airs on NBC in the US.
