Kygo’s Best Show EVER: Olympic Closing Ceremony is ‘the Biggest Performance of My Life’

The 2016 Olympics have come and gone, and Kygo‘s life has changed for the better. The Norwegian DJ had his day and possibly his life made when he got to perform at this year’s Olympic closing ceremonies.

The producer had just released his debut album in May, and his song “Carry Me” became the choice to close out the Olympics. Performing along with him was Julia Michaels, and they didn’t even mind the slight rain falling on the stage as they jammed.

Kygo has made a name for himself by infusing a tropical sound into his electronic music, and he even lived in Brazil when he was younger, which made him a great fit for the Rio event.
