Luke Combs performed his single “Better Together” on Wednesday (Oct. 14) at the Billboard Music Awards, live from Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
Combs took to the Dolby Theatre stage to perform the song with just himself and a pianist, allowing his stunning vocals to be put on full display. The country superstar shocked fans as he appeared onstage without his signature ball cap that he typically wears during his live shows.
Following his performance he accepted the award for Top Country Artist.
“Better Together” is a track from his 2019 chart-topping album, What You See Is What You Get, and it is also expected to appear on the deluxe edition of the project, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, which is slated to released on October 23.
“The performance is really great. It’s just me and a piano which is a little bit different than people are used to seeing than me and the guys,” Combs said ahead of his performance. “It’s been a weird year for everybody I think, not getting to play has been really stressful but just being able to be out here regardless of there being a crowd or not, obviously would prefer there to be a crowd here but just any chance to get up there, I’m here to welcome that opportunity.”
Combs is nominated for four awards at the BBMAs including Top Country Artist, Top Country Male Artist, Top Country Album and Billboard Chart Achievement Award. The superstar previously won Top Country Artist in 2019.
The 2020 Billboard Music Awards also featured performances from Kane Brown, Garth Brooks, Demi Lovato, Post Malone, BTS, Bad Bunny, Alicia Keys, Doja Cat, Sia and more.
