Watch Halsey perform with Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie at Coachella

The pair joined forces for two songs at the California festival

Halsey surprised crowds at Coachella on Saturday by bringing out Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie for two songs – including a cover of ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’.

The singer told the crowd: “When I was young there was one band that changed my fucking life!”

Urie then arrived on stage at the California festival – and joined Halsey as the pair dueted on ‘New Americana’, taken from debut album ‘Badlands’.

But Urie then stayed on stage, and joined forces with the singer once more –with a performance of Panic At The Disco’s ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’.

Describing the performance on Twitter, Halsey wrote: ‘Thank you @brendonurie for performing with a girl who sat at 14 and sang all your songs with fierce determination to be just like you one day.

Urie replied: ‘Thank YOU for allowing a musician like me to be a part of something so great. I had a blast.’

The pair have previously been open in their admiration of each other, with Urie admitting that he’d love to work with her.

He told Fuse: ‘I got to meet her and she’s a phenomenal performer. She is such a good singer, has such a good message, she’s so good onstage, charismatic.’

Halsey has been similarly forthcoming with her praise, and only last week paid tribute on Urie’s birthday – describing him as ‘one of the most important people in my life.’
