Comedian Bill Burr predicted Sunday that people would not be happy with his Grammys presentation during his time on stage for the awards show.

His presentation started off with a joke about suicide after the piano solo that he took the stage to finished.

“Was I the only one that wanted to kill himself during that piano solo?” Burr joked. “I bought a suit for this. I thought I was going to be on TV. I’m such a moron. I’m losing so much money.” (RELATED: Bill Burr Rips Cancel Culture In Incredible ‘Saturday Night Live’ Monologue)

Burr was chosen by the Recording Academy to present pre-show awards to Latin artists. Burr specifically presented the awards for best choral performance, best classical instrument solo performance, best classical vocal album and best classical compendium along with best Latin rock or alternative album, best regional Mexican music award and best tropical Latin album.

“The feminists are going nuts,” Burr said during his time on stage. “Why is the cis-white male doing all this Latino stuff?”

Burr went on to butcher the name of the woman who won the award for best regional Mexican music.

“I can’t say the name,” Burr said. “The Grammy goes to Natalia Lafourcade. I will accept on behalf of her. If I butchered her name, I’m sorry. Natalia, you won.”
