Lykke Li performed many songs and even took a few requests. Among the songs she performed were "I'm Good, I'm Gone", "Until We Bleed", "No Rest For the Wicked", and "Dance, Dance, Dance". Each song was full of energy and so catchy. "I'm Good, I'm Gone" was my absolute favorite of the night. It was so awesome.
