2012 Billboard Music Awards: Goodie Mob Pay Tribute To Beastie Boys
Before Cee Lo Green and his reunited Goodie Mob crew physically took to the MGM Grand Stage during their “Fight To Win” performance at the Billboard Music Awards, a one-legged dancer in military garb arrived on crutches and proceeded to wow the audience with jaw-dropping moves. Then a wall was lifted and the quartet, decked out in all white, belted out their new inspirational new single.
Afterwards — and keeping with the “fight” theme — Cee Lo yelled, “Yo, Billboard Awards — get your asses up and celebrate the life of MCA!” The group then launched into a rowdy cover of Beastie Boys‘ breakthrough hit “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)” as a tribute to the late Adam Yauch. (Really, it’s all about Carrie Underwood singing along to every word in the audience.)
