MTV Movie Awards 2014: Ellie Goulding & Zedd Perform Their ‘Divergent’ Soundtrack Songs

By: Robbie Daw / April 14, 2014

Eminem and Rihanna weren’t only pop pair to make a showing at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (April 13) night. British songbird Ellie Goulding and Russian producer/DJ Zedd were also on hand, and their appearance fit slightly more with the evening’s events, given that they both performed songs from the Divergent soundtrack. (You know — a movie, as opposed to Em and RiRi’s “Hey, we’re going on tour together, so here’s our big promo for that” spectacle.)

At any rate, Ellie kicked things off by ditching the leather she wore just two days before at Coachella and showing her softer side as she performed “Beating Heart,” complete with fire burning all around her. Zedd played piano during her bit then segued into his own Divergent track “Find You,” while being joined by vocalists Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant.
