M.I.A. took the stage at the 2013 YouTube Music Awards to perform her latest high-energy hit — and her performance did not disappoint!
M.I.A. gave a psychedelic performance of her song “Come Walk With Me” at the 2013 YouTube Music Awards on Nov. 3 from New York’s Pier 36. She used the YouTube platform to her advantage by making her stage performance a total sensory overload!
M.I.A Performance Of ‘Come Walk With Me’ — 2013 YTMA
For her highly anticipated performance of her song, “Come Walk With Me,” M.I.A. started on the stage in near darkness — but soon came dancing through a vortex of blinking rainbow-colored lights!
The stage was then entirely lit up by glow in the dark hula hoops, held by her dancers, and twinkling LED-light displays! The hoops felt like they were suspended in the air, adding to the surreal feeling of the show.
The pulsing lights coordinated perfectly with the song’s beat, and her dancers made the performance feel like it was taking place at a club with strobe lights.
M.I.A.’s New Song ‘Come Walk With Me’
M.I.A. previewed her song “Come Walk With Me,” in April 2012, but she gave it some major updates before officially releasing her track in Sept. 2013. The YouTube Music Awards show were the perfect place for her to show off her creative side — because that’s exactly what makes her songs’ videos such viral YouTube hits!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did you enjoy M.I.A.’s performance? Did you think the flashing lights were awesome — or are you still recovering from the light show?
