Rebel Wilson — who pulled triple duty at the ceremony as host, performer and winner — Skylar Astin, Alexis Knapp, Esther Dean and Ben Platt gathered onstage at Sony Pictures Studio in Culver City, Calif. to perform an a capella medley of Miley Cyrus' "The Climb," Eminem's "Lose Yourself," Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" and Macklemore's "Thrift Shop."
It was, as Macklemore would say, f**king awesome.
News of the reunion was first rumored in early March, when Wilson tweeted that she had been talking to her castmates from the 2012 Jason Moore about dusting off their microphones once again at the awards ceremony.
"I've been talking to the Pitch Perfect cast about reuniting for a number at MTV Movie Awards..aca-let's CRUSH IT x," she tweeted.
And crush it they did. Members of the (fictional) storied Barden Bellas and Treblemakers opened the show, setting the stage for the festivities to come.
You can consider this a warmup: Rumors are brewing of a "Pitch Perfect 2." In December, Astin called a follow-up a "talking point" and implied that he'd be so in for a sequel.
“I think they did such a perfect job," he told MovieWeb of the comedy. "The music landed so perfectly when it came out the first time, I can't imagine, if the same people are involved, that lightning won't strike twice. I will sing whatever they want me to sing."
