The 2013 Awards Awards: 5 Memorable Award Show Moments (Miley Free Edition)

Country still can’t stop obsessing over Sunday’s Country’s Music Association Awards so this post is inspired by her. Each year seems to bring more and more and more random awards shows. While these are for the most, stupid and boring, there is an occasional amazing live performance that makes them somewhat watchable.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of the staff’s favorite awards show performance from 2013. As promised, this list will not include Miley’s infamous MTV VMA performance because we’re done reliving that abomination.

Scene’s Pick: Lindsey Stirling at the YouTube Music Awards

I’ve had plenty 2 say about the YouTube Music Awards so ill just keep positive here and talk about how much i LOVED Lindsey Stirling’s performance of “Crystalize”!!! Way 2 represent the YouTube community, Lindsey!!!

Metal’s Pick: Anthrax at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards

Anthrax? Performing “This Love” with Phil Anselmo? With some “Raining Blood” thrown in? Can I get a HELL YEAH???

Country’s Pick: Zac Brown Band at the Country Music Association Awards

I could’ve easily gone with Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line’s sexy, I mean rockin’ collaboration, but I felt bad about not mentioning Zac Brown Band and Dave Grohl’s amazing team-up in my CMAs wrap up so I decided to go with them instead. Sorry, guys. Hope this makes up for my omission!

Hip Hop’s Pick: Kendrick Lamar at the BET Awards

Kendrick Lamar is dope on his own, but if you throw in some Erykah Badu, well I ain’t got words for that!!!

Techno & Dubstep’s Pick: Hardwell at the DJ Mag Awards

The best thing about the DJ Mag Awards is instead of getting one song, performers can spin for a full set! Hardwell proved why he was named top DJ of the year with this PLUR performance!
