Fresh off his Super Bowl Halftime Show last week, Travis Scott brought his wondrous Astroworld to the Grammys stage Sunday evening. The Houston rapper gave the audience a taste of his high-flying US tour by performing a medley of “Stop Trying to Be God”, featuring special cameos from James Blake, Mike Dean, and Earth Wind & Fire, and Philip Bailey, as well as “No Bystanders”.
Although the first song included some extra star power, it was “No Bystanders” that actually shook the stage. Scott performed from inside a giant cage, and then stage-dived onto a crowd of hyped fans that were screaming along to the very apt lyrics, “Fuck the club up!”

Scott was up for a total of three Grammys this evening — Best Rap Performance (“Sicko Mode”), Best Rap Song (“Sicko Mode”), and Best Rap Album (Astroworld) — but came up empty handed. His current tour is one of the year’s most hyped.
