Watch fun. perform ‘We Are Young’ and ‘Some Nights’ at the Woodies Awards Festival.
If fun. isn’t quickly on the way to becoming one of your favorite bands, there’s a chance something might be wrong with you. (Sorry to break it to you this way.) The MTV PUSH alums and one of MTV’s Artists To Watch this year performed “Some Nights” and “We Are Young” (the song you fell in love with on “Glee”) at the 2012 mtvU Woodies Awards Festival at SXSW yesterday, and unfortunately these videos are the only souvenirs we have for you. But accept this e-taco on our behalf.
If you’ve never seen fun. perform live, their Woodies Awards Festival appearance is just a small taste of what to expect — anthemic sing-alongs, grand, swirling visuals and a crystal-clear voice pouring out of lead singer Nate Ruess’ body (despite how tight his skinnies are). Fun. got the crowd chanting along during “We Are Young,” which was difficult considering half of them may or may not have had sunstroke, while “Some Nights” had us asking, “Wait, is this fun. I’m watching or is this Queen?” (à la Jessica Simpson and the Great Tuna/Chicken Debacle). Dudes have PIPES.
+ Watch fun. perform “We Are Young” and “Some Nights” below and after the jump, check out more Woodies Awards Festival performances, and tune in to the 2012 mtvU Woodie Awards airing Sunday, March 18 at 8 p.m. ET on MTV and mtvU.
