After spending Monday evening in Queens with J. Cole and Tuesday night in the Bronx with Janelle Monae, night three of VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz made its way to the borough of Brooklyn. Temperatures outside of the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg last night dipped into the single digits, but things could not have been ANY hotter inside as emo warriors Fall Out Boy frenetically worked their way through 12 high energy songs in the course of an hour, including one that featured a very special guest.
Well, there’s no use keeping a lid on who the surprise guest was (especially considering it’s right there in the headline) — Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams bounded on stage to join Fall Out Boy about halfway through the band’s biggest hit to date, “Sugar, We’re Going Down.” These two bands, arguably the most successful of the entire emo movement, will be touring together this summer on the #MONUMENTOUR, but fans got a sneak peek of how epic those series of dates promises to be last night. We always had a sneaking suspicion that these two acts would be an even better combination than chocolate and peanut butter, but we finally got to witness that in the flesh last night! And now, thanks to the magic of internet video, those of you who weren’t watching VH1 last night can experience it, too.
For all your FOB super fans out there, here is their complete set list from last night; each title links directly to video of their performance!
SET LIST: “The Phoenix” / “This Ain’t Scene, It’s An Arms Race” / “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More “Touch Me” / “Alone Together” / “Dance, Dance” / “I Slept With Someone In Fall Out Boy And All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me” / “Young Volcanoes” / “Thirller” / “Sugar, We’re Going Down” (feat. Hayley Williams) / “Tnks Fr Th Mmrs” / “Just One Yesterday” / “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)”
