On Sunday, March 17th, mtvU’s woodie awards are back! These awards highlight “the music that college students love.” Last year, they had wild performances by Mac Miller, Santigold, and A$AP Rocky. This year Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be taking the main stage for a little “Thrift Shop” fun. Other performers for this year’s show include Alt-J, Jake Bugg, and Joey Bada$$.
This year there is also a new award category called, “FOMO Woodie”. This award is for the live shows you have the biggest Fear Of Missing Out on. Nominees for this new award are Death Grips, Fiona Apple, Flux Pavilion, Frank Ocean, Jack White, Swedish House Mafia, and The Weeknd. Other categories include Best Video Woodie, Tag Team Woodie, Breaking Woodie, and Branching Out Woodie.
On a personal note, I cannot wait for these awards. After all, it is the awards show for the music college students love. I am a college student, so that works out great! I already voted for who I think should win each category, and you can too by clicking RIGHT HERE. The awards are on Sunday March 17th at 8pm and will be aired on both MTV and mtvU. Vote for your artists and tune into the fun!
