Sam Smith and Kim Petras blew everyone away with their performance of 'Unholy' and the 2023 Grammy Awards.
The duo stunned audiences as they brought their daring track to the stage, and they didn't hold back, taking the 'Unholy' theme to a whole new level.
Sam stunned in latex platform legging boots, with a matching red shirt and a top hat with devil horns! The entire set design was adorned with red everything, and Sam and Kim matched their scarlet-sporting ensemble of dancers – it was a full production!

Kim sang her verse from a cage, as you do, and flames decorated the perimeter stage – this is certainly a Grammy performance for the history books!
The stage was full of steamy props, everything from whips to leather chokers to canes was used as Sam and Kim sang their hearts out.
It was a big night as they didn't just perform but the pair also took home Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for the song in question.
The win was a historic moment as Kim Petras became the first transgender woman to win the award for the award.
As she walked up to the podium, she said: “Sam graciously wanted me to accept this award because I'm the first transgender woman to win this award.
“I just want to thank all the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open for me so I could be here tonight , Sophie, especially", she said during the acceptance speech, “my friend who passed away two years ago told me this would happen and always believed in me."
Petras continued: "Thank you so much for your inspiration, Sophie. I adore you, and your inspiration will forever be in my music."
