Last night was the biggest night of the year for music, with the sixty-fifth Grammy Awards taking place.

However, there was one aspect of the show that viewers at home didn’t find particularly pleasant. Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ performance of their iconic track ‘Unholy’ left many viewers disturbed, with some even deeming it to be a ‘Satanic ritual’.

Despite this criticism, the pair still managed to snag a prize for the inescapable track, claiming the award for Best Pop Duo Performance. This marked an incredible achievement for Petras in particular, as she became the first transgender woman to ever win that award.

In her speech, she said, via LADBible: “Sam graciously wanted me to accept this award because I am the first transgender woman to win this award.”

She continued to thank “all the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open for me so I could be here tonight.”

The evening as a whole was one full of shocks and surprises, with Twitter, as always, providing commentary along the way.

The biggest prize of the night, Album of the Year, was widely predicted to finally be awarded to Beyonce. The legendary ‘Break My Soul’ singer has been nominated for this award multiple times yet never managed to take it home, and once again the Academy failed to award it to her.

Instead, it went home with Harry Styles for his third album, Harry’s House.

Record of the Year, where Styles’ anthem ‘As It Was’ was widely thought of as a shoo in, went home with Lizzo for her track ‘About Damn Time’.

In another big shock, Taylor Swift lost out on Song of the Year for her iconic ten-minute long re-recording of the fan favourite track ‘All Too Well’ from Red (Taylor’s Version).

Instead, country blues singer Bonnie Raitt beat Swift to it, with her song titled ‘Just Like That’.

But what viewers found to be one of the biggest upsets of the night had nothing to do with the award winners, but instead more to do with one of the big performances of the night.

Smith and Petras took to the stage to perform the track, that tells the tale of a man cheating on his wife and doing “something unholy.” The pair both donned devil-inspired looks, and, combined with the message of the song, people have a lot to say.

One person wrote: “Somebody named Sam Smith dressed as Satan performed a song called ‘Unholy’ at the #GRAMMYs. They’re indoctrinating your children.”

Another said: “Sam Smith and Kim Petras performing their disgusting song titled ‘Unholy’ at the 2023 Grammys. I didn’t want to post this video but I have to expose how satanic the music industry is. This is so demonic. Stop listening to this GARBAGE. It’s witchcraft! Seek Jesus.”

While a third wrote: “If as a Christian, you think we are reaching when we talk about the dominance and normalisation of Satan worship in pop music, you need discernment. Sam Smith’s performance at the Grammy’s last night was satanic, gory. No, it’s not art; it’s symbolic of who they serve.”
