Uh oh, it seems like Saturday Night Live's, the comedy sketch show on NBC, season finale ended with a bang! - or more like a rip? We suppose... because it seems that Lil Nas X suffered an oopsie live on telly while performing his hit new single Montero (Call Me By Your Name), on May 22.

During the performance, Lil Nas X (real name Montero Lamar Hill) is seen gyrating against a pole, wearing micro tight-fitted leather trousers.

But around two minutes in, the Old Town Road singer stands up and immediately covers his pelvis with his hand, making sure to keep it there for the rest of the performance.

After the episode aired, the artist took to Twitter to reveal the hilarious reason for his performance adjustments, writing: “NOT MY PANTS RIPPED ON LIVE ON TV”

He then added a further series of Tweets addressing the ripped pants below.
