Not bad at this! Halsey hit the stage at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball presented by Capital One at The Forum in Los Angeles on Friday, December 1, and performed a bevy of hits including a sexy rendition of “Strangers” with special guest and collab Lauren Jauregui.
Halsey looked amazing in thigh-high boots, sequined hot shorts and a crochet bra top underneath her parka. Lauren opted for a black top and equally sexy leather miniskirt.
Halsey, who also performed "Bad At Love," "Now or Never," and "Colors" at the KIISFM hosted event, previously shared she chose Lauren to collaborate on the LGBT love song after she felt the track needed a little something else.
“Something wasn't right. Something was not believable. I need it to be more real. Lauren is a friend of mine and she is openly bisexual and so am I," she explained to J-14.com. "Our fans, really this past year, have just really expressed so much support and so much love and indication that they relate to us and that they are happy to us be outspoken about it. I was thinking to myself, ‘If I want this song to be believable it needs to be real. So I'm not going to put a girl on this song to sing who is straight. I'm just not going to do it. So I reached out to Lauren, she came in and cut the vocal and it sounds awesome."
"I just love that Lauren and I are two women who have a mainstream pop presence doing a love song for the LGBT community,” she concluded. “It's rare to see it from a girl's perspective."
