The band Fun opened the 2012 MTV Movie Awards Sunday night with their hit song “We Are Young.” Dressed in white tuxedos replete with high-water pants, the young band members exuded excitement and musical prowess. Janelle Monae joined the band on stage for one round of the chorus toward the end of the act.
The song was the perfect opening for the awards show. The audience danced and sang along and the television viewing audience was privy to glimpses of stars like Jennifer Aniston and Ellie Kemper from The Office.
Did you see Fun on MTV Sunday night? Do you agree that the audience definitely got into their music? Did you know that “We Are Young” didn’t have much radio coverage at all until it was covered on the TV musical Glee? After that it was used by Chevrolet for an ad that aired during the Super Bowl. Now it has made it all the way to the opening act of the movie awards show.
Congrats to the “We Are Young” singers on a great song and the perfect way to open the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night.
