"When I was young there was one band that changed my f---ing life!" the 21-year old proclaimed. And out came Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie, who helped close out her set with a duet on her hit single “New Americana.” But that wasn’t all. Urie stuck around for one more treat -- a performance of his own breakthrough hit, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.”
