The Chainsmokers brought their summer jam "Closer" to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.

The DJ duo, joined by featuring artist Halsey, performed a mellow rendition of their hit, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Member Alex Pall stood center stage behind a keyboard as Andrew Taggart, who lends his vocals to the track, paced the stage with mic in hand.

Halsey, wearing a sparkly silver ensemble, came out onstage mid-set and got close with Taggart as they harmonized their lines.
