Rebel Wilson and the cast of “Pitch Perfect” treated the MTV Movie Awards audience to a first: an onstage mash-up. Following Wilson’s hilarious opening segment with James Franco, Wilson opened up her monologue with her take on Miley Cyrus‘s “The Climb.”
That segued into the Treblemakers hitting the Movie Awards stage and performing their rendition of Eminem‘s “Lose Yourself.” It was a rousing rendition, but not quite as good as the Barden Bella’s version of Alicia Keys‘ “Girl on Fire” — especially when Wilson came out in a skimpy outfit waving nunchucks.
The entire sketch came together wither Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” being mashed up with “Girl on Fire.” Macklemore didn’t look especially impressed by the musical showdown, but it was all worth it for Wilson shouting, “This is f**king awesome!” at the end. Was the mash-up worth the hype?
