Desiigner took the 2016 iHeartRadio MMVAs to the next level! When it was his turn in the spotlight during the June 19 awards show, the rapper got everyone dancing with a banging performance of his hit, ‘Panda.’ He even ended it with a stage dive!
If there’s one word that could describe Desiigner’s performance at the 2016 iHeartRadio MMVAs, it would be “Wow.” The 19-year-old rapper tore up the stage while busting out his hit, ending his jaw-dropping performance just like a rock star!
MuchMusic Headquarters, in Toronto, Canada, was barely standing after Desiigner’s performance of “Panda” during the June 19 awards show. The young rapper from Brooklyn ran to every point of the stage, all while jumping up and down with the pounding bass. Talk about cardio. He tossed up the mic and while the backing track played, Desiigner cracked a smile before diving off the stage!
That was incredible! Total rock star ending and the audience certainly appreciated the level of energy Desiigner brought to the show, as they swarmed all around him. Nice. He then basked in the glory and you know, he certainly deserved it!
2016 has been a huge year for Designer (aka Sidney Royel Selby III.) Before he blew up with his big hit, the young hip hop talent was in the middle of huge bidding war, as 11 record labels all wanted to sign him, according to MuchMusic. He ultimately partnered up with Kanye West, 39, and his G.O.O.D. music. Yeezy sampled “Panda” on his song, “Father Stretch My Hands Pt.2,” helping launch Desiigner’s career.
Desiigner’s performance at the MMVAs was much better than what happened during his April 16 concert. While onstage at The Emporium in Long Island, New York (just a train ride away from his native Brooklyn) Desiigner got so caught up in the performance that he suddenly puked! Gross! It seems he was bouncing around too much. Still, despite vomiting, he finished the show. After all, he is a professional.
As shocking as puking onstage might be, Desiigner’s most OMG-moment of 2016 has been the time he got pushed around by Justin Bieber, 22. Beibs was onstage with Desiigner during a performance at 1OAK in New York City. The “Sorry” singer gave the rapper one playful nudge, before following it with a much harder shove! Desiigner reportedly landed on Justin’s feet one too many times and Biebs just wanted to tell his bud to chill.
Thankfully, it ended well, as Desiigner apologized and told Justin, “My Bad.” Seems it’s never too late to say “sorry,” though Desiigner has no reason to apologize for his rocking performance at the MMVAs. In fact, let’s hope he hits up some more awards shows!
