That will all change on Monday night, when she takes the stage at the O Music Awards 2 in Los Angeles to close out the show. And just how is she preparing? Well, much in the same way she prepares for all of her gigs: with a maximum focus on making people move.
“I’m planning to play with my band as usual, no tricks, just like what we always do, which is usually just try to make people dance and have a good time,” Robyn told MTV News. “I think it’s gonna work this time. I’m gonna perform as many songs as I can. We’ll see what we’ll be able to fit in, but I’ve been told I get to do as many songs as I want to, so I’m gonna try and fit as much as I can. Maybe not a full show, but a little more than you usually get at an awards show.”
Fans can catch Robyn’s set — and a special tribute to late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, courtesy of the Flaming Lips — beginning at 11:30 on Monday night, when the O Music Awards 2 are broadcast on MTV. The rest of the event will unfold across a number of the Viacom Music Group’s websites, including MTV.com, VH1.com, CMT.com, LogoTV.com and MTVHive.com.
Additional presenters and performers include Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, Alabama Shakes, Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator, Travie McCoy, Midi Mafia and DJ Diamond Kuts.
Oh, and just in case you weren’t aware, Monday also happens to be Halloween, so, in addition to blowing folks away with her headlining set, Robyn is also toying with the idea of getting in the spooky spirit. Which means that there’s a very good chance you might get to see her rock not only the stage, but a costume, too.
“Maybe I should,” she smiled. “I dressed up as Robin, you know, ‘Batman and Robin’ at this costume festival once in Texas, I think it was in Texas. [No,] Comic-Con. At San Diego’s Comic-Con, so I may have to do something like that. I’ll think about it.”
The O Music Awards 2 will unfold on Halloween on OMusicAwards.com, as well as MTV.com, VH1.com, CMT.com, LogoTV.com and MTVHive.com. Fans can vote for their favorites and get updates at OMusicAwards.com.
