Lil Nas X picked up the Song of the Year award for 'Old Town Road (Remix)' featuring Billy Ray Cyrus at Monday night's ceremony (26 Aug). As he took to the stage, he thanked Billy for helping him "take his career to the next level" before saying he had a "little speech" prepared and pulling out a lengthy scroll.
