Even though the 2012 EMA were jam-packed with killer performances (tune in tonight at 11/10c on MTV2 to watch it all go down!), we have to say there was one onstage ensemble that really stood out to us on the style team—and nope, it wasn’t worn by Taylor Swift, Gwen Stefani, or even Rita Ora—it was sported by *drum roll* the lead singer of Muse! I know, I know. We never really talk about the British rock band’s on-point style, but when we peeped frontman Matthew Bellamy’s insane LCD glasses, we had to discuss IMMEDIATELY. We were not only blown away by his tiny lyrical screen shades, but that, um, haiii, it was totally an homage to one of the most iconic ladies in fashion, Ms. Lady Gaga!

You might remember last year when Mother Monster teamed up with Polaroid to create the GL20 Camera Glasses (above) that feature two 1.5-inch OLED screens, and Muse decided to use the same idea by displaying lyrics from their song “Madness” while performing it live. SUH-WEET. Little Monsters everywhere noticed the Gaga homage right away (as they should!), but even Muse admitted on the red carpet that their specs were inspired by Gaga herself. Love. And, OK, we know this LED glasses thing has been around since Gaga’s early Fame days, but what do you think? Is it still cool or has this stint already been done before? Let us know in the comments below!
