There Will Be A Very G.O.O.D. Performance At The Woodie Awards


Big Sean is having a big day today.

Not only does Tuesday (Feb. 24) mark the release of his third solo album, Dark Sky Paradise, but the G.O.O.D. Music rapper also announced that he'll be performing at the 2015 mtvU Woodie Awards, set to air live from SXSW in Austin, Texas on MTV at 9 p.m. ET on Mar. 20.

Sean's set will be part of an hour-long broadcast that not only includes live performances, but the awards themselves. There's the Woodie of the Year, of course, which pits Sam Smith against Charli XCX, J. Cole, Run the Jewels, Porter Robinson and FKA twigs. Then in the Artist To Watch category, Rae Sremmurd faces Raury, MisterWives, Kygo and James Bay.

Plus, there will be awards for Best Video Woodie, Cover Woodie, Next Level Performance Woodie and Co-Sign Woodie.

Make sure to check out the full list of nominees, and you cast your vote until Mar. 10.

So, what will Sean have in store for fans in Texas and tuning in at home? Well, we don't know for sure, but we've got a bit of a wish list.

He performs Dark Sky Paradise bangers

From "IDFWU" to "Blessings" to "One Man Can Change the World," Sean's new disc has plenty of heat. Seems like a safe bet that he'll run through some of the favorites.

Plus mixtape favorites

Sean has a gang of mixtape bangers, too, so why not treat the fans to some throwbacks? From his Detroit mixtape all the way back to the Finally Famous tape days, there's plenty to choose from.

He comes with crazy energy


That shouldn't be a problem. Sean leaves his all on the stage.

Kanye West may want everyone to have access to his new adidas sneakers, but because of their price ($350) and limited availability, that's just not the reality. But Sean has some -- and could even get more if he threw his away, probably. So why not give some fan a special gift?

The 26-year-old is a force on his own, of course. But he's also got plenty of enormous collabs and high-profile friends. Maybe Ariana Grande? Kanye? Drake?
