Troye Sivan Performs ‘Youth’ For Ellen DeGeneres’ Birthday
Performing the track for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Troye stuck largely with his Blue Neighbourhood theme: The set was cast in a blue glow and had neon outlines of houses decorating the stage behind him. The YouTuber -- appropriately described by DeGeneres as an artist she "loves so much" -- delivered an energetic and engaging performance, accompanied by a full live band.
Troye expressed his excitement for the performance in a series of tweets following the taping.
He continued, "just drove past the Hollywood sign at sunset after performing on @TheEllenShow. please never let me forget this moment. Not even in like a ‘holy sh—t I’m freaking out’ kinda way, just in a really really thankful way. Thanks for everything guys."
His performance on Ellen proved to be a less physically painful experience for the Australian artist than a concert that took place earlier this month (January 13). During a recent show at Sydney’s Enmore Theater, a concertgoer chucked a water bottle at the stage, hitting Troye in the face as he stood at the microphone.
He later posted about the incident on Twitter, confirming that “it 100% hit me in the face but I didn’t really feel it bc adrenaline."
