Halsey was actually in a glass case of emotions for her performance debut of “Without Me” at the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards.

“This is literally my favorite song right now,” exclaimed the evening’s host, Hailee Steinfeld, as she announced the performance. “I am obsessed.”

For the performance, Halsey was chained to a post, enclosed in a glass cage. The spectacle cumulated in a downpour, drenching the singer as she sang the emotional track.

“Without Me” currently sits at its peak position of No. 12 on Billboard's Hot 100.
