Wow! Tegan and Sara’s performance of ‘The Lego Movie’s ‘Everything Is Awesome’ with The Lonely Island was totally trippy — and an epic Oscars collaboration that will make the history books.
Tegan and Sara took the stage at the 2015 Academy Awards for the first time ever, and it was for one amazing performance of The Lego Movie‘s “Everything Is Awesome.” The girls were joined by Andy Samberg‘s group, The Lonely Island, and their hilarious performance is one people will be talking about for days.
Tegan and Sara’s Oscars Performance with The Lonely Island
Everything really was awesome about this performance!
Tegan and Sara kicked off the “Everything Is Awesome” performance with the chorus, and then their tiny stage turned around and BOOM — The Lonely Island took over with some very sick rap beats!
As The Lego Movie‘s theme song continued, things got weirder and weirder. First there was an “awesome possum” dancing around on stage, and then men dressed as the Lego workers from the animated film ran into the audience and handed out Lego Oscars. Even Oprah got one!
The performance eventually ended with Tegan and Sara joining The Lonely Island and all of their Lego workers and wild characters posing at the head of the stage. What an incredibly fun performance, the Oscars needs more of that!
Fans Felt ‘The Lego Movie’ Was Snubbed By Oscars
Even though the film’s song was honored with a great performance, fans were furious when it was revealed that The Lego Movie was not nominated for Best Animated Film.
The outrage was so intense that even the film’s director, Philip Lord, responded with a pretty hilarious comeback.
“It’s okay. Made my own!” Philip wrote on Twitter, captioning a photo of an Oscar made out of Legos. Amazing!
