BTS made Grammy Award history as they became the first K-pop band to perform at the awards.

The Korean superstars joined Lil Nas X on stage for a stunning performance of his monster hit Old Town Road.

Lil Nas X, a winner on the night, began the segment by strumming a guitar while lying back on a sofa in a set made to look like a living room.

Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers jersey was laid out on a chair in the background following his death in a helicopter crash hours before Sunday’s ceremony.
