Julia Michaels performs onstage during the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum on Aug. 27, 2017 in Inglewood, Calif.

After a warm introduction by Hailee Steinfeld, Julia Michaels -- who penned Steinfeld's chart topping "Love Myself"  sailed through an emotive performance of her own hit "Issues."

Michaels, who wore a deep red ruffle dress, was accompanied by two violinists as she delivered the song with a chilling quiver in her voice -- despite a quick cut to commercial during her song.
