VH1′s Do Something Awards honors young people promoting social change—but the televised ceremony is also a good excuse to have music acts perform their hit songs. (The awards air on a music channel, after all.) Performances—as well as host Jane Lynch’s homage to Eminem during the show’s opener—below!
Before we get to the music acts at last night’s show, we simply must repost the awesome opener, featuring a prerecorded bit of Jane Lynch doing some good to earn her place as host at the do-gooding ceremony. The scene transitions into Lynch live at the theater, pulling an Eminem at the 43rd Grammy Awards by walking out with lookalikes of her Glee character Sue Sylvester.
And now, let’s get to the music! Natasha Bedingfield performed her new rambling new story-song “Touch”.
Natasha Bedingfield – “Touch”
Dynamic duo Travie McCoy (who looks completely different when clean-shaven) and Bruno Mars sang “Billionaire” for about the five millionth time on television. At least this time they switched it up with Bruno belting out “Money (That’s What I Want)” before switching into their summer hit. Anyone else suspecting that Bruno might be too big now to play second fiddle to other artists?

And here’s Lifehouse performing “All In”, the second single from their new album Smoke and Mirrors.
