Sam Smith and Kim Petras performed their song “Unholy” at the 2023 BRIT Awards. The set differed in palette—if not theme—from the devilish bondage aesthetic of their 2023 Grammys performance last week. The track was nominated for International Song of the Year but did not win, falling to Harry Styles’ “As It Was.” Check out the performance below.
Smith was also nominated for Best Pop/R&B Act, again losing out to Styles. Smith and Petras are fresh off their win for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with “Unholy” at the 2023 Grammys; Petras became the first trans woman to win the award. The track is featured on Smith’s fourth studio album, Gloria, which was released in January.
