The 65th Annual awards ceremony was held in Los Angeles, America on Saturday, February 4,2023.
The biggest music event in the world had in attendance a host of celebrated personalities across the globe. Internationally-acclaimed music stars such as Jay-Z among others put up enthralling performances.
But one of the performances that has stirred huge controversy involved singer Sam Smith. He made headlines for declaring himself non-binary and going by “they” and “them,” and his most recent big hit was a song called “Unholy,” which is a duet between Smith and German transgender singer Kim Petras.
They won the award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. But here’s the kicker: Smith performed the song dressed as the devil, flanked by dancers dressed as demons.
