Last year, Skepta took home the 2016 Mercury Prize for his album Konnichiwa — and today, September 14, he returned to the awards' stage. Drenched in red lights and with flashing "REVENGE" logos, the grime MC performed "Man" with the help of a new collaborator — Gen F alumnus and recent Tyler, The Creator collaborator, Rex Orange County, who played guitar alongside him. At the end of his performance, Skeppy shouted out 2017 Mercury nominees Stormzy and J Hus. Sampha was the eventual winner of the 2017 Mercury Prize for his album Process.
