(Radio.com) The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards opened with a fiery set from Kendrick Lamar, who performed his hit "DNA" on a stage packed with pyrotechnics. One stunt gave way to another until it seemed the whole stage was engulfed in fire--a dramatic invocation to kick off the show.

Kendrick began the set on a raised stage and worked his way to the ground level, where a circle of karate fighters stood around a stuntman in a flaming jumpsuit. That's literal flames--his suit was on fire.

As backup dancers doused the performer with a fire extinguisher, Lamar transitioned to "Humble." A chain-link backdrop burst into a blaze as the audience cheered Kendrick's stagecraft. Read more here.
