Earlier, he wore a rumpled green cardigan with a T-shirt featuring a photo of the late “SNL” cast member Chris Farley for his performance of “Tequila Shots.”
Both songs are on his new album “Man on the Moon III: The Chosen.”
The sweater and dress appeared to be a homage to Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain— another “KC” — who notably wore both a cardigan (during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged concert in 1993) and a floral dress (on a 1993 cover of the now-defunct Brit magazine “The Face.”).
Cobain committed suicide at the age of 27 on April 11, 1994. Farley died of a drug overdose in 1997 at the age of 33.
