BTS and Lil Nas X took the floor by storm at the 62nd Grammy Awards 2020 as they performed 'Old Town Road' and music lovers were thrilled to see them together. While most fans were up for the surprise, many felt that BTS deserved better.

Others loved that the duo teamed up and thought that their performance brought an end to racism.

What's more, many fans couldn't stop poking fun at how BTS was introduced as Lil Nas X's "group of friends" and many were puzzled whether they were called "eclectic" or "neglected." One fan posted, "Grammys f**ked up. They said 'later coming up Lil Nas is gonna perform with a group of friends' B**ch they are called BTS show them some respect please." 

Another tweet read, "The Grammys announcer did NOT just call BTS 'Lil Nas X’s eclectic group of friends'." One fan, however, felt extremely offended by the line. "Bruh the woman that be tellings us what's going on and who's performing just said Lil Nas X takes on the stage with a neglected group of friends'. If they're so neglected then say the name - BTS - and give them a nomination."

One Twitter user posted, "BTS flew all the way from Korea just to support LIL NAS X?! FOR SEOUL TOWN ROAD?? WHICH NOT EVERY MEMBER PARTICIPATED IN?? This a damn setup. Wrap up this tired ass award show." Another one wrote, "D- Did BTS’ stylists dress Lil Nas X? He does look fire tho #Grammys2020."

For many others, it was an iconic performance. "The Lil Nas X performance just ended racism," one fan wrote and another said, "Best Performance tonight!!! Lil Nas X! He told us all that doesn't matter the color we all love MUSIC! #Grammys2020."

Another tweet read, "Here for the ride with BTS Lil Nas X on this Old Town Road!!"

Most other fans couldn't help but bring up their excitement levels up. "Okay I couldn’t concentrate on BTS performance with Lil Nas X at the Grammys because I was too busy screaming #GRAMMYs2020," one tweet read and another said, "Lil Nas X + BTS putting a much-needed smile on my face tonight."

Hosted by Alicia Keys for the second year running, the Grammy is being held at The Staples Center in Los Angeles and can be watched live on CBS.
