The HALO Awards are all about recognizing positive teens — and Tori Kelly is a great representation of that! She took the stage during the 2015 show in NYC and totally brought the house down with her performance of ‘Should’ve Been Us.’
Tori Kelly sounded absolutely incredible at Pier 36 when she performed her incredible new song, “Should’ve Been Us” on Nov. 14! The singer, 22, performed this song at the VMAs last year, blowing everyone away, so we knew how amazing it was from the start! Are you as obsessed with it as we are?
Tori’s performance was one of many amazing ones at the seventh annual Nickelodeon HALO Awards, which recognizes kids and teens who are doing great things in tehir communities, or “Helping and Leading Others” (HALO). The show was hosted by Nick Cannon, and also featured performances by Fifth Harmony, Joe Jonas and his band, DNCE, Flo Rida, and WALK THE MOON.
Tori, who auditioned for American Idol at age 16, but didn’t make it to the live shows, later signed on with Scooter Braun, who also manages Justin Bieber. Justin was awarded with a huge honor during the HALO Awards, becoming the first ever recipient of the HALO Hall of Fame Award. “There’s no better way to begin the holiday season than by celebrating the amazing work of these four teens and our first HALO Hall of Fame recipient Justin Bieber at the Nickelodeon HALO Awards,” Nick Cannon said in a press release. “Justin’s commitment to granting wishes for kids is unparalleled, and his ability to inspire and lead others through his positive actions is at the core of what HALO is all about.”
Well, Justin’s definitely in good company alongside Tori! Did you love Tori’s performance as much as we did, HollywoodLifers? The whole show will air Nov. 29 on Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons, TV Land, CMT, Nick.com and the Nick App at 7PM ET!
