WALK THE MOON is here and they're bringing the energy.
At the 2015 American Music Awards tonight, the band rocked the stage with their performance of Shut Up And Dance!
On a night when almost all the performances have been showstoppers, WALK THE MOON held their own.
We're so impressed and proud!
Check out the performance for yourself (above)!
And be sure to check out the ongoing winners list as it's announced HERE!
We can't contain ourselves!
We're already excited enough to see what Miley Cyrus is going to do as the host of the VMAS, but now we've got a few more reasons to get pumped for the award show on Sunday!
That's because we all know that the performances are what give the MTV award show that special spark and what a ton of people tune in for! If that's you, we've got some GREAT news!

It's now being reported that Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, AND Nicki Minaj will all be performing!
Swift is supposed to perform her hit single
A music video can't be made without a director. So you'd think an award show dedicated to music videos would actually invite the individuals who brought the video to life — but sadly, that's not what MTV thinks!
After director Josh Forbes found out his music video for Walk The Moon's Shut Up And Dance had been nominated for Best Rock Video at the VMAS, his excitement was short lived.
Because soon after, he learned that he wasn't even invited to attend the Miley Cyrus-hosted event! Aside from the musical artists and presenters, MTV offers Video Music Awards tickets only to those who are individually nominated in the Best Director category!

The Contracted 2 director learned that if he really wanted to go, he could buy a ticket — for $450 to $800 a pop! Not having that kind of money to throw around, Forbes is trying to crowdfund his way to the VMAs!
On Saturday, he set up a GoFundMe page as a "social experiment" with a goal of raising $1,300 for tickets for himself and his pregnant wife, a killer suit, and an Uber to the Microsoft Theater at LA Live! He wrote:
What do you get when you take one superstar artist, add a fun, talented band, and top it off with a catchy, addicting song?
Taylor Swift performing with Walk The Moon, duh!
Swift brought the Walk The Moon fellas up on stage Friday night for her 1989 world tour performance at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts — and it was a fun sight to see!

Instagram video from the concert shows Swift and Nicholas Petricca singing Shut Up And Dance, the band's hit song that absolutely cannot get out of your head once it enters (and that's a good thing!).
Ch-ch-check out the video (below):
We can dig it.
If you haven't been lucky enough to have heard of Walk The Moon yet, then get ready, because they're about to blow up.
The music video for their new single Shut Up + Dance just came out, and it's honestly pretty great.
The video is an '80s and '90s throwback that just reeks of nostalgia, while the music itself is totally modern!
