Macklemore & Ryan Lewis just hit the 2013 MTV Movie Awards stage for an expectedly ROUSING performance of their new single, “Can’t Hold Us,” and welp, it looks like our performance outfit predictions were only kind of wrong (or right, if you’re one of those glass-half-full types). We may have most heavily bet on the Seattle MC wearing a full-bodied fur coat, but we DID still forecast a 25% chance of fringe. And fringe there most certainly was. It wasn’t rendered in the sueded leather per usual but instead as regal golden rope all along the shoulders and hemline of Mack’s cobalt red carpet cape with a LOUCHE patterned lining made by friend Logan Neitzel. This was just the start of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ self-described “modern matador” performance steez.

While producer and beat-mastermind Ryan Lewis carries his satin-finish color blocked red carpet outfit over to the stage without switching out any pieces, the same can’t be said for Mack. Overall, the Great White Shark’s look is generally the same—all cobalt everything—but instead of that black tailored shirt, leather skinny tie, and patterned dress loafers, he switches these pieces out for black and blue Nike kicks and *drumrolllll* a wet-look/leather-look tank top. YEP. Know what that means? We got ANOTHER element right: 99.9999% percent likelihood of something sleeveless! *throws hands up into a touchdown formation, runs around office yelling and raining candy on co-workers* Also, we can’t move on from this until we shine a little light on the fact that his band embraced the Spanish tip with mariachi ensembles. Brilliant.
