Nelly and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard brought a high-energy performance of their latest collab “Lil Bit” to The Voice finale on Tuesday (Dec. 15).
The superstar pair performed the rap/country-infused duet on The Voice stage while surrounded by several dancers moving along to the beats of the song.
“Music brings all types of people together, and this is a dope track that merges my hip-hop style with Florida Georgia Line’s country style once again,” Nelly said of the song upon its release.
FGL’s Brian Kelly was unable to make the trip to California when the performance was taped as he was in the process of moving.
“Lil Bit” will appear on Nelly’s forthcoming country-inspired EP, Heartland, which is slated for release in early 2021.
Nelly and FGL previously collaborated on the “Cruise” remix in 2013.
The Voice finale also featured performances from Dan + Shay (“Take Me Home For Christmas”), Jason Derulo (“Take You Dancing” & “Savage Love”), Lauren Daigle (“You Say”) and Lewis Capaldi (“Before You Go”).
Additionally, the two-hour show included star-studded collaborations from Keith Urban feat. P!nk (“One Too Many”), JP Saxe with Julia Michaels (“If The World Was Ending”), 24KGoldn and Iann Dior (“Mood”).
