The French singer, who was born Héloíse Létissier and goes by “Chris” these days, was dressed in a simple tank top with a red ribbon dangling from high-waisted jeans. Létissier led a tightly-choreographed performance of the funky single and grooved along completely in sync with several backup dancers to make for a completely captivating performance.
Dam-Funk made a special appearance, shredding away on his key-tar, as Létissier danced alongside him in the track’s final moments.
Christine and the Queens released the enchanting music video to “Girlfriend” back in May. The video is a thrilling amalgamation of American pop culture, with Létissier incorporating tight choreography from both West Side Story and Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller”, as well as a cue from 1930’s photographer Charles Ebbets. The single is the first since the singer’s highly successful 2015 self-titled debut.
