Van Halen opened up the Billboard Music Awards tonight with their classic song “Panama,” and they certainly kicked the show off right.
Right after Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video premiere, David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, and Wolfgang Van Halen took to the stage and delivered a high-energy performance that made us feel like it was the ’80s again—in a good way.
We’ll forgive Roth’s questionable outfit (was that a workout jumpsuit?), because he gave a random AF shout-out to Nicki Minaj about helping him with his seat or something. Is this code for sexual lingo? What even was that?
Eddie’s guitar solo was epic, as usual. It certainly got us pumped for the band’s world tour starting in July. Are you buying tickets?
