Breakout star Lil Nas X split his pants while pole dancing on “Saturday Night Live”— but kept the show going with a little choreography adjustment.
The “Old Town Road” singer, while busting a move during his performance, ripped the seam of his pants, causing him to cover his crotch and keep singing his new song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” The wardrobe malfunction came when, Lil Nas X, whose legal name is Montero Hill, sang and danced during the season finale of the NBC show, which was hosted by Anya Taylor-Joy.
After his apparently too-tight black pants tore, Lil Nas X looks straight into the camera before continuing with the performance in his revealing outfit that showcased his chiseled physique.
Lil Nas X took the pant-ripping in stride, retweeting fans who posted the video on Twitter.
“i wanted to do my pole routine so bad this what i get lmaoo,” he said on Twitter just after midnight.
“i know i do a lot of planned shit but ripping my pants on live television is not one of them,” the singer added.
He also tweeted Sunday morning about the embarrassing incident .
“at first i was afraid to even perform. then we rehearsed for 2 weeks, then all of the dancers got removed because one had covid and new ones had to learn the routine in 24 hours, and then i ended up ripping my pants and couldn’t finish. everything happens for a reason tho lol,” he wrote.
