Cut short.

Julia Michaels gave a red hot performance of “Issues” at the VMAs.

From what viewers could see, anyhow. During the live broadcast of the VMAs, the network decided to run a few promos in the middle of Michaels’ performance before literally cutting it short and switching to commercial break.

Since you probably didn’t get to see all of it, watch the full performance up top. Courtesy of MTV; how nice of them.
