The MTV Woodies are back, but not like you remember them.
In their 12th year, the Woodies will be more focused than ever on showcasing rising talent. Instead of a traditional awards ceremony, the hourlong broadcast of MTV Woodies/10 for 16 will look more like a festival highlighting 10 new artists primed to have an amazing year in 2016.
As for your host? The live, one-hour broadcast will be emceed by none other than A$AP Rocky.
Rocky's a Woodie winner himself, having picked up the Best Collaboration Woodie in 2014 with Skrillex. He put out his second studio album, At. Long. Last. A$AP, in May 2015.
The show will air on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, live from the South By Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. Stay tuned for more news on who’ll be performing.
