Watch Iggy Azalea & Charli XCX Perform “Fancy” Live For The First Time
Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX teamed up in Austin at the mtvU Woodie Awards to give “Fancy” a live debut during SXSW. XCX buddy Danny Brown introduced Iggy by saying, “Nothing gives me a woody more than a fine female who can flow,” and while it’s completely sophomoric, it also pretty much encapsulates Iggy’s onstage persona: half sex appeal, as she was wearing a bodysuit (in keeping with the song’s Clueless obsession, it was Cher’s iconic yellow plaid) and half pure MC, as she was always in command of the rhymes while strutting around and kicking giant balloons.
As for Charli, the singer surprised the crowd when she emerged for the second chorus, and the two gals gleefully played off each other for the rest of The New Classic’s single. Check it out up top.
