Julia Michaels has been one of 2017's biggest breakout stars. Just see her 2018 Grammy nomination for Best New Artist as proof. On Friday (December 8), the pop singer/songwriter took her talents (and catalog highlights) to Z100's Jingle Ball in New York City and turned the Madison Square Garden-hosted show into her very own karaoke party.
Following Niall Horan's set, the pop maestro brought her sweet smile and familiar tunes to the crowd during the 12-minute set. Opening her performance with "Uh Huh," the 24-year-old playfully hopped around the stage in an all-black ensemble afront her band, before offering a rendition of her Clean Bandit collab, "I Miss You" to the show.
"How you doing, Jingle Ball? Amazing. This is my first Jingle Ball, so I'm really excited that I get to do it in New York with you guys," she cheerfully told the audience, before making a smooth transition into a string of her Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez-penned hits like "Bad Liar," "Good For You" and "Sorry." Needless to say, the smashes had the audience on their feet and singing along to every word. Fun fact: Michaels isn't the only act to hit the Jingle Ball stage for the first time as Why Don't We debuted this year as well.
If you missed out on all the action, consider this your holiday gift. You'll be able to relive even more Jingle Ball action on The CW during a special 90-minute broadcast on December 14th and 25th at 8 p.m. ET/PT -- so put on your Santa hats, grab some gingerbread cookies, and tune in!
