Brendon Urie Explains His Halsey Coachella Collaboration

(Radio.com) There were lots of high profile surprise guest stars at Coachella this past weekend: Angus Young of AC/DC with Guns N Roses, Rihanna with Calvin Harris, Kesha with Zedd, and everyone with Ice Cube.

Another big moment was when Panic! At the Disco main man Brendon Urie joined Halsey on stage; you could practically hear the shrieks on Twitter. Just two days later, Urie spoke to Radio.com about the guest appearance, which marked the first time he was ever at Coachella, either as a performer or as a fan.

"We had tweeted at each other before," he says of his friendship with Halsey. "Because I was a fan of hers, and I covered one of her songs while I was live streaming; she heard about it and told me that she was a Panic fan. We had this mutual love and respect. So she asked me to perform, and of course I said 'Yes.' I was like, 'I'm gonna be out on tour, but I would totally fly in for this!'"

He said he left the song selection up to her; she wanted to sing "I Write Sins Not Tragedies": "She suggested that I come in during her song 'New Americana,' and she said, 'I really want to do "Sins,"' and I said, 'Yes! I would love to do "Sins" with you!'"

"And she explained her backstory, and why she wanted that song: that was the first song she had heard that got her into the band, she came to see us live, like, eleven times. It was the coolest thing, and I had such a blast." Read more here.
