But in the meantime, let's recap all the amazing moments from 2016! The MTV Woodies/10 for 16 was held on March 16, 2016 at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Harlem rapper and cultural tastemaker, A$AP Rocky was our host with the most, thrilling the crowds and chilling backstage with performers to find out more about their music. Our first performance came from founding Mob member, A$AP Ferg who brought down the house with "New Level," before California-based artist Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals hit the stage to perform "Am I Wrong." Next up was the eclectic sounds of London-based, electro-pop artist, Jack Garratt, who wowed the crowd with his performance of "Worry." R&B artist and all-around Queen Kehlani then rocked out to her hit, "The Way" while Glasgow's own Chvrches had us grooving to the poppy sounds of "Clearest Blue." To finish the night, Chainsmokers thrilled us with a rendition of their chart-topping hit, "Roses" that had everyone singing along. What a night!
