Panic! At the Disco delivered the first respectable performance tonight at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. Frontman Brendon Urie led a rendition of the band’s song “High Hopes” from their June album Pray for the Wicked.
Panic’s music video for “Say Amen (Saturday Night),” which features Urie stabbing a burglar in the face with a potato, is nominated in the program’s Best Rock category. The group mailed fans customized spuds to promote the song.
Fall Out Boy (“Champion”), Foo Fighters (“The Sky Is a Neighborhood”), Imagine Dragons (“Whater It Takes”), Linkin Park (“One More Light”), and Thirty Seconds to Mars (“Walk on Water”) also are nominated for Best Rock video.
