Fun. 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.
