'This Is Evil': 'Woke' Grammys Under Fire for 'Unholy' Satan-Worshipping Performance

Sam Smith and Kim Petras were roundly condemned after they brought a Satanic touch to the Grammy awards Sunday night.

The duo performed their hit “Unholy” on a night when they won the Grammy for best pop duo or group, according to Variety.

Smith began clad in red leather, then added a Satanic-horned top hat. Petras was shown dancing in a cage, surrounded by dancers also wearing Satanic headgear.

Revulsion flowed on Twitter.

“This…is…evil,” Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas posted, responding to a Liz Wheeler post that said, "... [d]emons are teaching your kids to worship Satan.”

“Hollywood freaks still thinking they’re so edgy with their Satanic themed performances,” Stephanie Hamill wrote.

"WOKE #GRAMMYs Satanic worshiping. I cannot believe what i just witnessed," Sabina Palermo wrote.

After the show, Petras gave an opinion of religion, explaining the performance, according to Variety.

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” Petras said.

“So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that, and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim."

Others shared their opinions as well, with one Twitter user saying “This song is sinfully blasphemous," while another called the performance "a tribute to Satan."

But during the show, it was treated as one big joke by host Trevor Noah, according to the Daily Mail.

Acting as though he was on the phone with his mother, he said,  "No, mom, it wasn’t the actual devil ... Yeah, you did warn me about Hollywood."

The Mail noted that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were among those laughing at the remark.

Noah then wrapped up the fake call and told the audience, "She said she's praying for all of us."
