As the 2015 mtvU Woodies kicked off in Texas Friday (March 20), the weather gods decided to unleash a torrential downpour.
This meant that Years & Years — the first performers of the night — were faced with a decision: Either they could carry on with their set as planned, or they could cower beneath some protectant ponchos and umbrellas.
OBVI, they chose to rock the f--k out and kick off the show with a wet and wild rendition of their fan-favorite single “King.”
The electro-pop trio recreated the intricate choreography from the tune’s music video, as frontman Olly Alexander was grabbed and hoisted up by a group of white-clad dancers.
As he sang about being “a king under our control,” Alexander jumped down into the crowd to rage with the thousands of glowstick-hoisting fans who clearly loved every second, rain be damned.
So yeah, you could say they set the bar preeeeetty high for the rest of the night’s performers!
