Post Malone returned to the Grammys stage Sunday to give a performance of “Hollywood’s Bleeding” that gave off serious seance vibes.
Posty, who was nominated for several awards throughout the night, gave the performance of a true scene kid.

He wore a floor-length leather trenchcoat that looked straight out of Ozzy Osbourne‘s closet. He was also surrounded by hooded figures holding candles in the dark. And there was a smoke machine, so it truly looked like a scene out of a horror movie.
Fans on Twitter could not get enough of Posty channeling his inner goth in the performance.

The rapper last performed at the Grammys in 2019, when he joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers for a mashup of his songs “Stay” and “Rockstar,” before transitioning to his collab with the Chili Peppers. Malone played guitar with the band for “Dark Necessities” and sang backing vocals.
Post Malone is also making history with his Grammy nominations this year, as he’s up for Album of the Year for his full-length Hollywood’s Bleeding, along with Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Circles.”
It’s the third year in the row he’s been nominated for Record Of The Year after “Rockstar” feat. 21 Savage in 2019 and “Sunflower” feat. Swae Lee in 2020. Posty is the first artist to be nominated for Record of the Year three years in a row since 1988 when Steve Winwood accomplished the same record. However, he did not win this year, as H.E.R.‘s “I Can’t Breathe” took home the award.
The rapper also was nominated for Album of the Year in 2019 for Beerbongs & Bentleys, but lost to Kacey Musgraves‘ Golden Hour.
