Scott kicked things off on a mellow note before sparking a riot. The rapper opened his performance with “Stop Trying To Be God” which featured James Blake, Philip Bailey, Mike Dean, and Earth, Wind & Fire. Scott then brought his Astroworld vibes to 100 with “No Bystanders.” The rapper performed his single while inside of a cage and a bunch of wild kids moshed on stage.

Scott’s performance was at the Grammys came a week after he performed his Grammy-nominated single, “Sicko Mode” at the Super Bowl half time show. The song was up for Best Rap Song and Best Rap performance while Astroworld was up for Rap Album of The Year — ultimately losing to Cardi B’s Invasion Of Privacy.
