No stranger to television's biggest stages, Travis Scott turned up for the second week in a row for a fiery performance on the Grammys. As a victory lap for his three Grammy noms—for rap album, song, and performance—he offered a muted rendition of "Stop Trying to Be God," accompanied by James Blake emoting meekly in a turtleneck and trenchcoat and Earth, Wind & Fire (??) before going into an ecstatic "No Bystanders," featuring some kids climbing a big cage. In the fall, he was touring the country with a host of pyrotechnics and rollercoasters, so it's no surprise that he was able to bring some of that perilous magic to the stage. Check it out below.
