Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed “Can’t Hold Us” at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards!
Who caught Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us” performance at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards?? Better yet, who caught that truly inspired royal blue bullfighter suit on Macklemore?! (Never getting over it.) Well, while we may have spent a few minutes ogling Macklemore’s outfit, we’re going even crazier over the Seattle duo’s stunning “Can’t Hold Us” performance, which included everything from a Mariachi band to a guest spot from R&B/gospel singer Ray Dalton. Didn’t see the show? No worries! We culled through the set’s best photos to find the best visuals of Macklemore, Ryan, and Ray. (AND you can re-watch their performance below!)

Leaping around the stage (and in some cases, climbing it) in his yellow-tassled suit, Macklemore took the Movie Awards by storm with his spitfire verses and untamed energy while Ryan Lewis hung back to spin tracks and chime in with supporting vocals. Performing to a backdrop of pirate ship-looking/ocean visuals, Macklemore took over lead vocals while Ray joined in on the hook, singing, “Here we go back, this is the moment/ Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over/ So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us/ Like the ceiling can’t hold us.” To cap off the set, the “Thrift Shop” rapper jumped off the stage into a full-fledged crowd-surf before running through the theater’s aisles (hopefully to high-five Kerry Washington or some such celeb).
