VIDEO: Panic! At The Disco Rock the VMAs

In recent years, the MTV Video Music Awards haven’t really been a place for anything rock related, but there’s usually one performance slot reserved for a rock act, and Panic! At The Disco certainly made sure to make their time count.

The band delivered an incredible rendition of “High Hopes” last night that featured Brendon Urie being ushered in on a moving platform stage.  Add in a brass and string section to really take advantage of the acoustics of the Radio City Music Hall venue, and it was definitely one of the live highlights of the night.

P!ATD may have come up empty-handed, with the Best Rock Video Moonman going to Imagine Dragons for “Whatever It Takes,” but they more than made up for that loss with the performance below.
