10 Unforgettable 2017 Loudwire Music Awards Moments
We want to thank all of you again for helping make the 2017 Loudwire Music Awards the biggest night in our site’s history. For those of you who haven’t checked out the full show yet or just want to relive the big night, here are some unforgettable moments from The Novo in Los Angeles.
The show kicked off in a big way with Rob Halford and In This Moment teaming up for a darker take of Billy Idol’s “White Wedding” dubbed "Black Wedding." The chemistry between Halford and Maria Brink was off the charts as the two serenaded each other face-to-face. The powerful performance was a perfect way to start the evening and we’ve got to thank Rob and In This Moment profusely.
Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale could be a contender for award show MVP, starting her night by accepting Chester Bennington’s Best Vocalist award on the late musician’s behalf. She used the occasion to address mental illness and cyberbullying, and empowered us all to spread positivity instead of hating people for stupid reasons. Lzzy also paid tribute to Chris Cornell as Halestorm launched into Soundgarden’s “Fell on Black Days" before rocking a female-fueled jam of the Runaways' "Cherry Bomb."
The night concluded with a performance by Avenged Sevenfold. The modern-age giants rocked the crowd with a four-song set of mostly new material, tying a devilish bow on an event packed with once-in-a-lifetime jams and cameos from iconic musicians.
