Recent MTV PUSH artist and overall cool guys Young The Giant are the newest performers added to the all-star roster at the 2011 MTV VMAs! Joining Adele, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown, Young The Giant are pumped to join the talented award show lineup: “We’ve watched countless VMAs and to have the opportunity to perform this year alongside some of the biggest artists in the world will be truly amazing.” We concur.
The Orange County, California, natives have been playing and performing music for several years, even though none of the guys in the five-man band are over the age of 22. Young The Giant released their first album, Shake My Hand, in 2009, they recently joined Incubus on tour as their opening act, and their next stop is the VMA stage. Nice hustle, guys.
