Our Favorite Performances From The MTV Woodies Live From SXSW


As if South by Southwest® (SXSW®) wasn't already jammed-pack with amazing events to attend, The MTV Woodies were held live in Austin, TX on the first official day of the music festival. Four-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and multiplatinum, 21st century rap legend, Rick Ross hosted the awards and former 106 & Park host, Terrance J hosted the emerging artist pre-event an hour before the show. 

This year's line up included several well-known mainstream artists including Desiigner, D.R.A.M., Lil Yachty, Jidenna, Khalid and Starley along with presenters The Chainsmokers, A$AP Ferg, Young M.A and Bibi Bourelly.Check out some of the performances of the night from a few of our favorite artists. 

1. Khalid- "Let's Go"

While Khalid also performed his more popular song, "Location" his performance for "Let's Go" was a lot more entertaining and showed us a different side of the artist. He was also the recipient of the We can't wait to see what he has coming next!

2. Jidenna- "Helicopters"

Jidenna's latest album definitely has a different vibe from the original "Classic Man" that we fell in love this, but dig it! This motherland-inspired hit had the crowd vibing and enjoying his new style.

3. Rick Ross- "I Think She Like Me"

Not only was Ross the boss this night as the host of the MTV Woodies, but he also killed his performances (no surprise there).

4. Young MA- "Hot Sauce"

5. D.R.A.M. and Lil Yachty
