I am sorry that I didn’t cover this yesterday. I had a very busy day thinking about Britney’s performance and how mad I was at the VMAs for not putting respect on her name. Now that the smoke has cleared, I want to talk about one of the most underrated performances of the night, in my opinion at least.
“Closer” is one of the best songs of the summer and The Chainsmokers and Halsey did an incredible job performing it on Sunday’s award show. People are talking about how the lead singer of The Chainsmokers didn’t sound good live, shut up. You get mad when people don’t sound exactly like their record, you get mad when they lipsync. Just shut up. He didn’t sound terrible. His voice just isn’t as strong, whatever.
Halsey though? Halsey is a goddess. I was lucky enough to see her live in August and she is absolutely incredible. Also kind of looks like Ashley Greene, right? The Chainsmokers guy kind of looks like Joe Jonas too, weird. Anyway, they killed it, their chemistry was great, this song is amazing.
This is my song of the summer.
