The 2020 Billboard Music Awards went virtual this year and with social distancing on the red carpet hosted by Kelly Clarkson. The event was held at an empty Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The 21-year old singer/rapper attended the 2020 Billboard Music Awards and won Top Hot 100 Song. He walked the red carpet rocking an 80's-inspired "bayang" look from the TikTok meme viral in July.

Lil Nas X's appearance for the BBMA included his transformed hair that had side-swept curly bangs. Celebrity stylist Evanie Frausto created the new curly bangs hairstyle. The young artist wore square-tinted sunglasses and dangly earrings along with pastel green and pink snakeskin suit from Gucci.
