Halsey delivered a chilling performance of her new song “Castle” amidst flurries of fake snow at the MTV Movie Awards.
Halsey debuted her song “Castle” live at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards. The track appears on the soundtrack for The Huntsman: Winter’s War starring Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth as well as the singer’s debut album Badlands.
Backed by a booming orchestra, Halsey delivered the thundering, ominous pop cut on a fantastical stage set up and amidst flurries of faux snow, which added a chilly touch to the otherwise warm proceedings in Los Angeles.
“This will be the first time I perform ‘Castle,'” Halsey said in a statement prior to the show. “This song is so important to me as a woman; it’s about not letting anything get in your way.”
Halsey released Badlands last August, and the full-length album followed her debut EP Room 93 from 2014. Following her debut, Halsey toured with Imagine Dragons and the Weeknd and appeared on Justin Bieber’s album Purpose.
