Hunter, 21, took lead guitar during his performance and even walked into the crowd at one point, getting up close and personal with his fans.
Hunter was so cute on stage and had the words “let’s be crazy” scribbled across his guitar. His performance was filled with huge, personalized balloons and the song’s lyrics were printed on them. At the end, confetti spilled from the ceiling and a few special guests joined Hunter on stage.
