Decked out in country outfits, Billy Ray with his cowboy hat and black leather jacket and Lil Nas X in a bright yellow chaps and fringe jacket, the pair joined forces to perform their No. 1 hit “Old Town Road.”

The stage was turned into a saloon as BRC and Lil Nas entered the Staples center on horseback, probably a first for the BET awards. Billy Ray kicked off the song singing, “Yeah, I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road / I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more,” before Lil Nas X kicked into his rap.

Even though BRC and Lil Nas’ song was not nominated, the night would not be complete with the country-rap tune that has reached the top of the Billboard charts. The celebrities in the audience were on their feet, dancing and singing along to the catchy tune.
