When Post Malone, Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott get together, it’s nothing short of amazing.

Malone, 24, opened the performance solo with a rendition of “Circles,” before being joined onstage by Osbourne, 70, and Scott, 28, for a one-of-a-kind performance of hit song “Take What You Want” at the 2019 American Music Awards Sunday night.

The trio (literally) set the stage on fire, while Watt stunned with a guitar solo.

Before the performance, Malone was honored with rap/hip-hop album of the year for Hollywood’s Bleeding. Malone is up for a total of seven nominations this year, making him the most nominated artist at the 2019 show.

“Words cannot express how grateful and thankful I am for everything y’all have shown me,” he said while accepting the award. “We busted our ass for it so it feels good.”

He ended his speech with a hilarious head-scratcher of a statement: “I love grapes, so thank you so much.”

The “rockstar” rapper has won two AMAs in previous years. This year, his nods include artist of the year, collaboration of the year and favorite male artist in the pop/rock category.

Behind Malone, Ariana Grande and newcomer Billie Eilish each earned six nominations in categories ranging from favorite music video, favorite social artist, favorite female artist in the pop/rock category and favorite album in pop/rock.
