The performance came after the award for Song of the Year was given to Childish Gambino for “This is America.”
Malone started his set with an emotional acoustic performance of “Stay” complete with moody fog and a skull-adorned jacket. He showed off his amazing vocal chops and only made us love him more.
He then lightened the mood with a rendition of “Rockstar” before transitioning into his collab with the Chili Peppers. Malone played guitar with the band for “Dark Necessities” and sang backing vocals.
Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis even took his shirt off during the set, which was somewhat confusing but we don’t hate it.
Post Malone is up for Record of the Year, Album of the Year and a handful of other awards at the show.
See how fans on Twitter reacted to the amazing performance.
