Kyle Performs “iSpy” With Lil Yachty at 2017 Teen Choice Awards
2017 XXL Freshman Kyle and 2016 Freshman Lil Yachty put their youthful energy on full display when they performed their hit single "iSpy" the at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards this past Sunday (Aug. 13). Check out the electric performance for yourself below.
If you've seen the "iSpy" music video, nothing about the vibrant, feel-good nature of Kyle and Lil Boat's performance will surprise you. For the live rendition of the track, Kyle pretty much turned the stage at the Teen Choice Awards into a beach party. There are volley balls and volley ball nets, beautiful women and what appear to be synthetic palm trees. At one point, Kyle even uses a surfboard to literally surf the Teen Choice Awards crowd.
When Kyle wasn't crowd surfing or rapping out his lyrics to the song, he was turning in a full-on dance routine with some of the baddies that graced the stage with him. For his part, Yachty was a bit more subdued, but still showcased a good bit of the enthusiasm that's helped make him the star he is today.
After performing "iSpy," Yachty turned in a live performance of his Teenage Emotions cut, "Forever Young." From the moment the instrumental begins playing, it's pretty obvious it's even better live, especially for an event as star-studded and festive as the Teen Choice Awards.
Other dope performances from the night came from French Montana, who performed "Unforgettable" alongside Swae Lee. Immediately following that performance, Slim Jxmmi took the stage with Lee so they could perform their chart-topping single, "Black Beatles," as Rae Sremmurd.
Although Chance The Rapper and DJ Khaled didn't perform at the awards show, their collab “I’m the One” earned them the trophy for Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song. For his part, Chano also took home an award for Choice Breakout Artist. It was a big night for hip-hop.
