Tori’s star has been on the rise for some time now, and if we had to guess, her VMA performance just gave her a major boost! The singer/songwriter wowed the crowd when she hit the stage to perform her hit song, marking her official VMA debut. With guitar in hand, Tori kicked things off with a soft, soulful performance before demonstrating the full range of her vocal talents. Consider us majorly impressed!

Ahead of her performance, Tori hit the red carpet where she showed off her long legs in a pair of embroidered hot pants and a black lace top. The singer topped off her sexy, casual look with a gleaming gold envelope clutch, black pointy-toed pumps and of course, her signature voluminous blonde curls. Gorg!

The killer VMA performance is just the cherry on top of what’s been a pretty exciting summer for the up-and-coming star thus far. It all kicked off when Tori dropped her new album Unbreakable Smile on June 23, and proceed to rack up 1 million Instagram followers that same day.  The stunning blond then went on to perform at the inaugural Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival along with such other mega stars as Justin Bieber, 21, Nicki Minaj,32, and The Weekend, 25, which in a word, is huge! Stay tuned — something tells us this is just the start for what’s to come with Tori!
