“He’s one of my favorite people I’ve ever collaborated with,” Grey said of Eminem in an interview with Billboard on the red carpet at the 2017 American Music Awards. “I got to perform ‘Stan’ with him. ‘Stan’ is like a dream come true to sing that with him. I’ve listened to that song since I was 13.”

On Nov. 19, Grey and Eminem performed three songs on “Saturday Night Live.” With Grey providing the backup vocals, the Detroit rapper performed “Walk on Water,” “Stan” and “Love the Way You Live.”
