What Went Down At MTV’s Wonderland

The cable channel puts the music back on TV.

We can’t speak for everyone, but we tuned out of MTV once it was filled with annoying reality shows. Sure, you can flip to their subchannels like MTV2 for some music videos, but we paid that high premium to get the main channel and it was basically ignored. We wonder if the high executives saw the decline of their viewership and decided to go back to their roots. When you mention “MTV” there is a distinct picture in your mind where new bands are introduced, pop stars are lip singing, and rappers displaying their new chains. It’s about the music industry and their obsessive agenda to put their artist out in the limelight 24/7, this is what MTV was and it’s what we’ve known throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s.

So last Thursday night, the cable channel was like “Hey we hear you, we are gonna give you some music and you are gonna love it because it’s on your TV.” And you know what, we actually did love it. The live concert dubbed “Wonderland” brings together upcoming artists to perform their biggest hits in front of MTV’s new generation of viewers. Check out the recap of the night below from Downtown Los Angeles which includes performances from Flatbush Zombies, Kehlani, Vic Mensa, Sleigh Bells and Big Baby D.R.A.M.!

Next week they’ve got special performances by Amine, Reggie Watts, Dillon Francis and other surprise guests. Will you be tuning in?
