WATCH: Lorde, Thirty Seconds to Mars, & Bleachers Perform at 2017 VMAs

August 28, 2017

 

Tons of musicians performed at last night's 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, and in case you didn’t feel like watching the Katy Perry-hosted awards show, we’re bringing you three of those performances right here.

 

Thirty Seconds to Mars - “Walk On Water”

After delivering a powerful speech in tribute to Chester Bennington, Jared Leto joined the rest of 30STM to perform “Walk On Water,” the lead single off their upcoming album, live for the first time. Catch the infrared-looking performance below!

 

Lorde - “Homemade Dynamite”

Lorde is so on fire lately that even the flu couldn’t stop her from performing at the VMAs. Sort of. While she did dance her way through “Homemade Dynamite,” she didn’t sing. Still, we’ve gotta give her credit for not backing out—she did need an IV, after all

 

Bleachers - “Don’t Take the Money”

While Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff was struck by the kind of boredom that can only be cured by snacking on a banana during Katy Perry’s monologue, he completely changed his tune for Bleachers’ performance of “Don’t Take the Money.”

And, since we’re talking about Antonoff, peep this exclusive video to find out a little bit more about the album where “Don’t Take the Money” lives, Gone Now.
