British singer Sam Smith’s hell-theme performance with Kim Petras has met disapproval from conservatives who say that the show promoted satanism and evilness, accusing the singer of shoving his sexuality in their faces. 

Sam Smith, who identifies as a non-binary genderqueer, showcased his new identity in a sexually suggestive spectacle. 

Despite shocking many with their ‘Unholy’ performance, the duo made history as the first non-binary and transgender artistes to perform and win a Grammy Award (Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance category).

Last weekend, Sam Smith, whose pronoun is they, appeared on stage as a fiery-dressed Satan in tight red leather pants, a loose-fitting shirt, a horned hat and heeled boots. 

Unholy by Sam Smith and German singer Kim Petras was released on 22 September 2022 from Sam Smith’s fourth studio and is rumoured to be inspired by the true story of a Catholic priest who was accused of sexual abuse of a minor. 

The Grammy stage was filled with cages and whips and a host of performers from the LGBT community to match the lyrics of the song.

In 2019, Sam Smith admitted that he has always been at war with himself concerning his sexuality. “I’ve always had a little bit of a war going within my body and my mind. I do think like a woman sometimes, in my head,” he told GayTimes.
