Bryson Tiller‘s performance was lit — literally.
After winning two BET Awards, the Kentucky native hit the stage of the annual award show at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater.
Tiller kicked off the performance with “Exchange” off of his debut album, TRAPSOUL. The stage was set up as a crash scene — on fire — in the middle of a park. There was even an ambulance truck on deck. The audience was clearly feeling the track — Ray J and Princess Love were seen singing along to the song.
But it didn’t take long for Tiller to switch it up to his other hit song, “Don’t.” It was then the stage also changed up from the fiery look to a blue hazy fog. Tiller donned his infamous baseball cap that simply read “LA” and a comfy-looking grey cardigan.
During the performance of “Don’t,” Tiller wasn’t afraid to bring the funny. At one point, he looked at his watch before he said “don’t” — noting the long time it takes for the drop to happen in his song.
Congrats to Tiller for winning Best New Artist and Best Male R&B/Pop Artist. He’s still up for Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award as well. Check out some snippets from his performance below — as well as some commentary from the interwebs.
