Did the MTV Movie Awards really mark the first time fun. and Janelle Monae performed “We Are Young” on television? The song’s trajectory from unknown indie pop-rock jam to Glee cover to Super Bowl commercial tune to Hot 100 chart-topper has been a long but fairy-tale-like one, so it’s hard to keep track of these things.
At any rate, singer Nate Ruess and the band were decked out in their white jackets and black bowties, while Janelle surprised the audience at the awards gig when she sauntered on stage. Channing Tatum rocked out. Kristen Stewart looked happy. And Jennifer Aniston just seemed utterly confused. Watch fun. and Janelle keep it youthful above.
