Fun Open 2012 MTV Movie Awards with Performance of ‘We Are Young’

funFun. brought their colossal hit “We Are Young” to the MTV Movie Awards stage tonight, opening the show with a live version of the track that featured guest artist Janelle Monae.

Decked out in white suits and shoes with no socks, the New York City-based band sounded strong as they delivered the #1 hit in front of a bright red set. Monae and a backup choir showed up in the inverse outfits, wearing black suits with a white shirt underneath.

The celebs in attendance loved the performance as well. Jennifer Aniston was among those standing and singing along. It was a big moment for Fun., which was virtually unknown a year ago and now is big enough to open a major award show.

Before their performance, Fun. spoke about the inspiration for their red set. Watch their interview with MTV News below.
