Young the Giant, 'My Body'

Young the Giant are performing with the aid of 250 fans from their hometown of Irvine, Calif. That's sweet and all, but Irvine is less than an hour's drive from Los Angeles, where the MTV Video Music Awards are hosted; it's not like these guys hitchhiked in from Idaho. That said, this is a raucous performance by a still unknown band who is clearly thrilled to be able to put on such a big show.
