NEW YORK (AP) — R&B singer H.E.R. gave a next-level performance, sister duo Chloe x Halle matched the greatness of their recent Super Bowl performance and pop singer Bebe Rexha went off on the crowd when they didn't sing along to her monster hit song.

The female acts, nominated for best new artist at the Grammys, performed Thursday night at Spotify's pre-Grammy event.

Rexha was fiery during her performance of "Meant to Be," her record-breaking hit song featuring country duo Florida Georgia Line. When the crowd of music industry players didn't sing it back to her at Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, she went ballistic, f-bombs included.

She told her band to stop performing and said to the audience, "This song was No. 1 for 50 (expletive) weeks. ... I work too (expletive) hard for this (expletive), OK?"
