Halsey, who last performed in Singapore at The Star Theatre last year, is known for solo hits such as Bad At Love (2017), Without Me (2018) and Colors (2015).

She has released two albums - Badlands (2015) and Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (2017) - and has been nominated for six awards, including Artist of the Year, at the upcoming 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.

Aurora is known for songs such as Runaway (2015) and Running With The Wolves (2015) and she last performed in Singapore at the Laneway Festival in 2017.
