The Reason Why The Chainsmokers’ VMA Performance Was Bound to Fail

As the summer comes to an end, The Chainsmokers have began to reflect on the summer where everything changed.

The Chainsmokers continue to top the charts and people just can't seem to get enough of The Chainsmokers and Halsey's “Closer.” Now with the recent talks of an album, The Chainsmokers have began to reveal more and more details about their future collaborations.

Despite the success The Chainsmokers have seen, Drew Taggart finally came out and talked about their performance at the MTV VMAs.

“It sounded like shit. We were told my voice was going to be mixed well, but there was no reverb and it was way louder than the track for the broadcast. I was set up to fail. Nearly every other person lip-synced it, and we knew because we had them in our ears. So now I know why you lip-sync.”

I like dis pic. I was nervous. This was my first time singing live really ever n it was on tv n Kanye was watching. I had to remember to play to the Camera and then to the audience and then to Halsey. The curtain came up. Fuck. I forgot everything I practiced. I wasn't ready for it, but that's life. Life throws you into situations you aren't prepared for and you have to figure them out. Don't back down and don't ever give up. Also, CLOSER went double platinum today making it our 3rd double platinum record of 2016. Thank you guys for being a part of this journey ❤️
