Jay-Z, DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne and more closed out the 2023 Grammys last night (February 6) with a stunning performance of ‘God Did’.
The annual awards show took place at Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena and celebrated the best in music of the last 12 months.
After a night of top performances and history-making wins, the star-studded group – which also included Rick Ross, John Legend and Fridayy – took to a makeshift stage in the street outside to wrap things up in style. Performing from a long dining table covered in food and candles, the set appeared to take inspiration from The Last Supper.
“We did an eight-minute song on the Grammys,” Khaled told the cameras as the lengthy song came to a close. Watch footage of the moment below.
