It seems like taking off your pants and hitting the Grammy Awards stage in only your underwear is a new trend for 2017.

Musical duo Twenty One Pilots, best known for their hit songs “Heathens” and “Stressed Out,” beat out The Chainsmokers, Rihanna and Drake, winning the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and took off their pants to accept their award.

As the duo stepped on stage in only their boxers, lead vocalist and keyboardist Tyler Joseph explained why they went without pants to accept their statue.

“This story it starts in Columbus Ohio. It was a few years ago. It was before Josh and I could make money playing music. As we were watching [the Grammys], we noticed every single one of us was in our underwear,” Joseph said in his acceptance speech. “We said, ‘If we ever win a Grammy, we should receive it just like this!'”
