Skylar Grey closed the night with a strobe-heavy set of storming dance moves and inspirational vocals. She performed songs off of her recent album, Natural Causes (released September 23, 2016). The soft and somber “Moving Mountains” brought a good balance to more intense songs like “Straight Shooter.” The crowd was mesmerized during her performance of Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” which she wrote for the rapper.
