Last night’s momentous date made for an equally momentous musical event: The Big & Best of 2012. The all-live, all-fun event collected the best music from the year, having some of our favorites perform in honor of the special date. 12/12/12 is a once in a lifetime date and The Big & Best of 2012 was a once in a lifetime event. Check out the top five performances from yesterday, and be sure to watch it all in its entirety over at MTV.
1. With 5(!) Grammy nominations this year, Miguel blowing up. Here’s “The Thrill” from his album, Kaleidescope Dream.
3. Brit Alex Clare showed off his chops (and donned a jaunty cap!) performing “Too Close.”
4. First Aid Kit performed their hit “Emmylou” live from the streets (literally!) of Nashville, TN.
5. Bruno Mars has been everywhere recently, proudly performing future hits from his new album, Unorthodox Jukebox. He closed out the show with a performance of “Young Girls”.
