Ariana Grande and Halsey performed during the MTV Movie Awards on April 10.

Both of them performed singles about being daring, which is fine. Halsey sings in “Castle” about an old man suggesting that she keep her pretty mouth shut. “Dangerous Woman” is a 2016 remake of Aretha Franklin‘s “You Make Me Feel Like (A Natural Woman).” They also appeared straight off the sets for The Huntsman: Winter’s War​ and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Yet for all this fanfare, both performances felt tame. Halsey mostly kept her composure where she could have bared some teeth. And while Ariana’s jazzy take proved she has vocal chops, her singing about being dangerous wasn’t convincing.
