The Chainsmokers perform 'Young' at 2017 Billboard Music Awards: Watch


The Chainsmokers delivered an acoustic performance of "Young," the second-to-last song off their debut album Memories... Do Not Open, at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.

Strumming a guitar in a blue denim shirt, Drew Taggart was joined by Alex Pall on synthesizers and animated drummer Matt McGuire for the first televised performance of the song. Pall also made a surprise Vocoder appearance midway through to help Taggart finish off the song's recurring refrain.
