Watch the Black Eyed Peas's 2020 MTV VMAs Performance Video
Turns Out 2020 Marks the First MTV VMAs Performance For the Black Eyed Peas
It's been 15 years since the Black Eyed Peas played the MTV Video Music Awards pre-show, but Sunday night's performance of their new song,"VIDA LOCA," marks their first-ever performance on the VMAs "stage." The group's energy was at an all-time high in their interesting lighted pants as they sang under the watch of a superimposed Nicky Jam before bringing out Tyga. The track, which premiered Aug. 20 and samples MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This," is full of everything that makes a Black Eyed Peas song tick, including the iconic "Four, Tres, Two, Uno" from "Fergalicious." Of course, it wouldn't have been a true Black Eyed Peas performance without "I Gotta Feeling" added in at the end.
Fergie may have left the band in 2017, but the Black Eyed Peas haven't wasted any time picking fire collabs, like "RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)" featuring J Balvin and "MAMACITA" featuring Ozuna & J. Rey Soul, which were up for best collaboration and best Latin at the VMAs this year. Watch their full performance of "VIDA LOCA" and "I Gotta Feeling" above.
