Frank Ocean Gives Best VMA Performance

Frank Ocean should have walked out of the Staples Center last night with the Best New Artist award, but he sure did show everyone that he is indeed a winner (with or without the award) with his stunning performance of “Thinkin’ Bout You.”

This was one of the only “real” performances of the night– no glitz, no glam; it was all about the music, all about the vocals.

Ocean was seated next to a makeshift campfire and delivered perfect vocals over a strumming acoustic guitar. It was full of emotion and definitely drew the crowd in.

One person who was a fan of the performance was Lady Gaga. Gaga didn’t make it to this year’s show, but she did tweet about Ocean’s performance, saying:

“watch frank ocean steal this whole show. I’m dead.”

It shows such bravery and courage to come on a stage and deliver such an emotional performance, especially after he wrote a post on Tumblr about his bisexuality and love for a man.

Check out the amazing performance of “Thinkin’ Bout You” from the VMAs after the jump!
