(Daily Mail) — Grammy viewers slammed Sam Smith and Kim Petras over their ‘satanic’ performance of their award-winning single, Unholy, on Sunday night.
The pair took to the stage shortly after making history with their win in the Best Pop Duo/Group performance, however the performance drew mixed reactions from onlookers.
After Smith – who [declares himself to be] non-binary and uses [so-called] gender neutral pronouns – was seen wearing satanic headgear in the horror movie-inspired performance, viewers flocked to social media to share their frustrations about the ‘demonic’ themes.
One tweeted: ‘I know we on the right probably use the word satanic too often but this performance from Sam Smith is literally a tribute to Satan.’
Another added: ‘You don’t have to be super religious to be disturbed by that Sam Smith devil-worshiping performance.
