Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ ‘Can’t Hold Us’ MTV Movie Awards Performance: Fans React

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took a break from the “Thrift Shop” on Sunday night (April 14) to perform their latest single “Can’t Hold Us” at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. According to Macklemore’s tweets, it seemed like one of his highlights from the show involved a memorable actor encounter (“I think Adam Sandler slapped my ass before I went on though”)  but he clearly had a good time in general, tweeting, “This is an incredible and very surreal experience. Never thought I would be here. #sharkfacegang #MovieAwards.” See what fans had to say about their performance after the jump.

@AmandaLaski How long until Macklemore’s performance at the MTV (music? movie?) Awards goes online and I can watch it? Need some spank bank material.
