Tate McRae showed off her moves during an emotional set at the Daytime Stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival presented by Samsung Galaxy.

Since hitting the scene on the the competition show So You Think You Can Dance when she was just 13, the Canadian teen has expanded her repertoire of talent to become known for her singing and songwriting abilities. She showcased her talents on the Daytime Stage, opening her set with "All My Friends Are Fake," the second single from her debut EP All the Things I Never Said.

Next up, she joined her dancers to show off some moves while treating the crowd to a performance of "Bad Ones," from her EP Too Young to be Sad, which dropped earlier this year.

Her dancers left her alone on the stage for a performance of "Friends Don't Look at Friends That Way," a "really special" song she remembers writing in her bedroom years ago. She stayed on her debut EP for another spirited performance for her lovesick track "Stupid."

McRae rounded out her set with "You Broke Me First," her breakthrough hit single and a song she said was very important to her.

The 18-year-old singer has racked up collaborations with some big names recently. Earlier this year, fresh off the release of her sophomore EP Too Young to Be Sad, she joined Troye Sivan and Regard to provide alluring vocals for the club banger "You." In June, she switched her normally emotionally-driven song for what she called a "straight summer bop" when she teamed up with Khalid for the track "Working."
