Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed at last night's MTV Video Music Awards, playing their single "Same Love." It was a simple and moving performance, focused just on the music and message of the lyrics. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were accompanied by Mary Lambert and surprise guest Jennifer Hudson, sharing the female vocals of the thought provoking song. This was the most intimate set of the night, with only giant spotlights and U.S. flags to back the musicians as they performed in the midst of a crowd of fans.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Same Love" won the award for Best Video with a Social Message. The Seattle duo also took home the moonmen for Best Hip Hop Video and Best Cinematography, both for their single "Can't Hold Us."
"Same Love" comes from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' debut album, The Heist. You can buy it on iTunes now.
