Nelly brought it up to Sunday’s 2020 American Music Awards as he celebrated the 20th anniversary of his diamond-certified studio debut album Country Grammar with an energetic medley of some of his early hits, including « Country Grammar, » « E. . I. , « and » Ride Wit Me. « Nelly was joined by rapper City Spud, who is his hometown of St. . Louis as he relived the early successes of his career.
The performance comes just one day before Nelly, who is in the finals of 29. Dancing With the Stars season with pro partner Daniella Karagach and the other Final Four couples: Nev Schulman and Jenna Johnson; Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev; and Justina Machado and Sasha Farber. The teams will dance two final performances, one of which will revisit their favorite routine from earlier in the season and the second will allow them to show off their individuality with a freestyle routine. For Nelly and Karagach they will play « Rhythm of the Night » their samba for a second and then strut their things in freestyle to Megan Thee Stallions « Savage » and Notorious B.. I. Gs « Hypnotize. «
Switching from rapping to dancing has been quite a journey for Nelly. He achieved his first perfect score in the semifinals last week, beating partners Skai Jackson and Alan Bersten as well as Johnny Weir and Britt Stewart for a place in the final. « This is my first time here so I don’t know how it’s going. It’s not like they give us the numbers when we vote. They’re taking it at face value, « Nelly told TV Insider, who he believed would take home the Mirrorball Trophy earlier this month. « However, I have seen that there is someone different [who is at the top] every night and different people show different skills every week. Some people shine on certain nights and with certain dances. Yeah I think it’s wide open. «
Working with a season one pro was a « bonus, » Nelly continued. « It makes us work so much harder. She wants us to do great, but this is a world I’m not familiar with. I don’t want to embarrass myself! « Moving from hip hop and rap to Dancing With the Stars has given his work a whole new realm, which Nelly added as a blessing. « I’ve had a diverse following since I got into this game. I really appreciate that and don’t take it for granted because it allows me to try new things and think outside the box, « he said. The final of the 29. Dancing With the Stars season airs on Monday at 8 p.m.. m. ET on ABC.
