Kings of Leon is up for a whopping twelve awards tonight at the MTV EMAs, and on top of that, they completely slayed their musical performance. If you weren’t fortunate enough to catch their epic rendition of ‘Waste a Moment’, no worries — we’ve got all the details right here!
Kings of Leon brought tremendous energy to the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards in Rotterdam, Netherlands on Nov. 6, and we’ll be rewatching their performance of “Waste a Moment” a LOT in the near future. Not only did the band play real, actual instruments onstage, but they, like Green Day, brought some much-appreciated rock music to the otherwise pop-focused awards show. Their new album just went number one, and we can see why!
Kings of Leon released their highly-anticipated seventh record WALLS on Oct. 14, and if you haven’t looked into them beyond their hit “Use Somebody”, here’s your chance. Apart from the powerful “Waste A Moment” that we saw them play tonight, take a listen to haunting tracks like “Wild” and “Over.” There’s a reason these guys are nominated twelve times tonight! If you’re dying for more, you can grab tickets to their tour here.
The MTV EMAs are all about the performances, and we’ve been treated to amazing ones from host Bebe Rexha and DJ Martin Garrix, DNCE, The Weeknd, Shawn Mendes and more. Definitely one of the better lineups that we’ve seen at an awards show!
