5 Performances We Loved From the 2014 MMVAS

Ariana Grande at the MMVAs

Whether you were in the crowds or at home watching, last night Much Music Video Awards (MMVAs) certainly delivered some great performances. From  yellow taxis  to lamps, who knew such things could provide us with such solid entertainment?!

Kiesza shows off her moves with ‘Hideaway’ 

Modelling her viral music video, Canadian singer Kiesza showed up in a yellow taxi and displayed some kickass dance moves for her television debut performance. With the catchy beats of her single ‘Hideaway’ coupled with her energy, it’s no surprise why her song has already reached #1 on the charts in the U.K, Belgium and Netherlands.

Lorde performs ‘Tennis Court’ and ‘Team’ (and lies with a lamp)

FACT: Lorde is killing it.

After taking home two Grammy Awards this year, the 17-year-old singer is really making a name for herself in the music industry. And upon watching her performance last night, it’s clear the New Zealand native is getting more comfortable on stage.

That being said though, can we please talk about her awesome dance moves and not to mention, that lamp?! We love the lamp and it’s probably our favourite prop of the night. (It has also inspired a new Twitter account.)

Ariana Grande shimmers while singing ‘Problem’ 

Currently sitting at #2 on the Billboard chart, Ariana Grande took the stage with her single “Problem.” Despite the fact that Iggy Azalea was not there to perform with her, the singer held her own with her great dance moves and insane vocals. We also loved her glittery outfit. Mariah Carey would be very proud.

Ed Sheeran goes with the tried and true with ‘Sing’

What’s so great about Ed Sheeran is his consistency. And by that, we mean he’s CONSISTENTLY AMAZING when he’s performing live.  Last night’s MMVAs performance was no exception.

Backed by a small band, it was just Sheeran and his guitar as he performed his hit single ‘Sing.’ It’s a simple yet effective performance, but it was enough to get the girls screaming for him.

Imagine Dragons rock out with ‘Demons’ and ‘Radioactive’

We loved when Imagine Dragons performed with Kendrick Lamar at the Grammys so when we heard they were coming to Toronto, we were pumped. The Las Vegas band played their hits ‘Demons’ and ‘Radioactive’ last night and their performance was bangin’…literally. Lead singer Dan Reynolds had amazing enthusiasm and we loved the fact that he even went to hit a couple of drums during the performance.

But that being said, what was also a highlight about Imagine Dragons’ appearance at the MMVAs was when the crowd sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to  guitarist Wayne Sermon. SO SWEET!
