'I'm with you' gave me goosebumps. Avril's voice is just something else, and mixed with Dom's...wow,' one fan said
While Avril Lavigne gears for the release of her seventh studio album, promised this year, the pop-punk icon has been making a number of headlines of late. Avril surprised viewers when she popped in on 'The Yungblud Show' to perform her smash hit 'I'm With You'. During her appearance, Avril and alternative rocker Yungblud teamed up to perform a scaled-back rendition of the popular 2002 ballad on the latter's live-streamed episode.
During the 28-minute mark of the nearly hour-long episode, Yungblud introduced Avril as "emo queen" while saying, "I can’t believe I’m even f***ing saying this." Their stunning performance saw Yungblud helming the acoustic guitar and providing harmonized backing vocals as Avril sang as crisp and powerful as ever.
The live stream also had other prominent artists such as Machine Gun Kelly, Tommy Lee and Dave Navarro as special guests, and marked the one-year anniversary of the original 'The Yungblud Show'. Machine Gun Kelly had also appeared in the premiere episode with Bella Thorne and Oliver Tree. Watch the full episode below.
