Chlöe Bailey has officially made her solo debut at the MTV Video Music Awards! The 23-year-old singer, who makes up half of the musical duo Chloe x Halle, performed without her sister, Halle Bailey, on Sunday VMAs at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
The singer showed no nerves during the TV premiere of her first single, "Have Mercy," which was released just days before the show. Her younger sister, Halle, was on hand to introduce her performance, and expressed how "proud" she was of her frequent collaborator and partner to "find her voice."
"This year, she has stepped into her own artistry, sharing a message of self-expression and self-love and I'm so, so, so proud of her. I love you sis!" the Little Mermaid star exclaimed.
Chlöe made her solo VMAs debut count with a memorable entrance onto the stage. Shrouded in a pink veil, she showed off her impressive vocal range during the opening notes of her dramatic performance. As she got into the meat of the catchy beat, Chlöe rocked a hot-pink corseted bodysuit and matching lace-up high-heeled booties.
During the dance break, Chlöe showcased her impressive moves as the screen behind her changed to a fiery red with her name emblazoned on it.
Viewers also noticed that Chlöe's outfit was reminiscent of a similar bodysuit that her mentor, Beyoncé, wore in the "Bootylicious" music video.
Ahead of the awards ceremony, Chlöe revealed to ET's Rachel Smith that Halle would be presenting her performance, and that they would be reunited on Monday night for the prestigious Met Gala in New York City.
Chlöe's time on the VMAs stage followed her and Halle's VMA pre-show performance of "Ungodly Hour" last year.
"That is when I started creating my project. I found my confidence -- like, 'OK, you can do this now,'" she said. "I always have my sister’s support, and she will always have mine, no matter what we do together or individually."
As for the album itself, Chlöe teased, "I’m creating my own lane, as well as paying homage to the ones who have inspired me. It has been fun finding my voice."
