2012 MTV Movie Awards: The Musical Entertainment
Though the night was mostly about films, a handful of artists took the stage at the Gibson Amphitheatre to offer up performances as portion of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards .
Among the acts included in the lineup was alternative rock band fun., who teamed up with Janelle Monae to treat viewers to a lively version of the song “We Are Young”.
Barely producing it to the MTV Film Awards after being stranded at the airport in Dallas just hours prior to showtime, Wiz Khalifa wasn’t fazed by the close call as he quickly changed backstage before grabbing the mic and busting into his hit single “Operate Hard Play Tough”.
Final, but surely not least, The Black Keys enlisted the support of Generation Award winner Johnny Depp – with the acting great strapping on his guitar although joining the American rock duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney in performing “Gold On the Ceiling” followed up by a rendition of “Lonely Boy”.
