Representing the state of Montana, Prill confidently took the stage to perform the Seth Ennis, Jordan Schmidt and Jared Mullins penned track in front of a live studio audience as well as millions watching from home.
The “Montana Cowboy” brought his rural lifestyle to the stage as he sported a cowboy hat and was surrounded by hay bales and a pickup truck.
Step aside, begging for a two lane / Hey, baby what’s you say? / How ’bout we fire it up? / Just like a more blood to carry on a new flame / How ’bout we fire it up? / We been heatin’ up, baby, for way too long / What you waitin’ on? Let’s get gone / We’re a field of grass, can of gas / Perfect match ready to get struck / How ’bout we fire it up? (Hey),” Prill sings on the chorus of the song.
Following his performance, co-hosts Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson commented on Prill’s song and Clarkson even seemed to joke about his alluring looks.
“Are you ready to fire it up? Did you already fire it up?” Clarkson joked with Snoop, to which he replied, “I really am, I mean, I’m talking about song wise, What are you talking about?”
“Just the song that’s on fire, that’s all… that’s what I was talking about,” Clarkson said as she blushed, laughing.
Prill is representing the state of Montana while competing on the new reality show, which is a spinoff of Europe’s Eurovison Song Contest. The show features contestants from all 50 U.S. states as well as Washington, D.C. and five territories.
The 24-year-old, who was born and raised in Billings, Montana joined the show after producers reached out to his team.
“They actually reached out to my management,” Prill said, “and from what I heard they were like ‘Hey, what do we have to do to get Jonah on the show?’”
Prill has made a name for himself on social media, raking in 814k+ followers and over 13 million video likes on TikTok. He also has over 140k+ followers on Instagram where he often shares photos and videos showcasing his country lifestyle and chiseled abs.
