MTV’s “Artist To Watch Live” show featuring Fifth Harmony, Tori Kelly, Rixton, Jake Miller and Echosmith was off the chain, and that’s just what happened backstage!

ICYMI, MTV’s “Artist To Watch Live” concert absolutely slayed last night! A bunch of members of our Artist To Watch class of 2014  — like Rixton, Fifth Harmony, Jake Miller, Echosmith, and Tori Kelly — completely rocked the House Of Blues Sunset stage, thanks in no small part to a special guest cameo from Ariana Grande. #SQUEE

However, what happened on the stage is hardly even the whole story! From dramatized “Hunger Games”-style cannibalism to a TON of Beyoncé-Stanning that would make the BeyHive proud, so much crazy ish went down backstage! And thankfully, we’ve got the ridiculously fun photos to prove it.

Did we mention Ariana Grande surprised everyone (and their phones) when she joined Tori Kelly on stage?

Echosmith did their best “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

…And had a gloomy Joy Division moment.

…And then ate Sydney.

Jake Miller and Tyler Posey had a bro-fest. (Sigh. Blinded by beauty.)

The bro-fest continued when Midnight Red and Wesley from Emblem3 stopped by.

But, where was Rixton during all of this? Oh yeah… WINNING THE WORLD CUP!

Which surprised them just as much as winning awards surprises Taylor Swift.

Rixton also reenacted four video games at once (“FIFA World Cup,” “Call Of Duty,” “Donkey Kong” and “Grand Theft Auto 2,” respectively.)

While Tori Kelly got her hair caught in a fan, Beyoncé-style!

That happened because her hair is so big. #FullOfSecrets

But, nothing was more shocking than when Dinah forced Normani to join the Hunger Games.
