It was a night of college students, stars and of course music that made the MTVu Woodie Awards a night to Death Cab for Cutieremember.

The Woodies, which first aired five years ago, is a celebration of music that’s voted by college students. This years awards took place in New York’s Roseland Ballroom (on Nov. 18), where musicians like Matt and Kim, The Dead Weather and Death Cab for Cutie rocked the stage.

Matt and Kim started off the show as they biked to the stage along with some friends, who weren’t only their back-up singers, but also began stripping down as they performed their single, Lesson Learned.

Stars like Zooey Deschanel, Mary-Louise Parker, Leighton Meester, Pete Wentz and Cyndi Lauper also joined in on the fun as they presented the awards to various categories including, Breaking Woodie, Best Performing Woodie, Best Video Woodie and Good Woodie.

Be sure to check out all the fun yourself, by tuning into the Woodie Awards on Dec. 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET on mtvu, MTV and MTV2.

30H!3 Impersonates Lady Gaga at the Woodie Awards


While presenting the Left Field Award at the mtvU Woodies at Roseland Ballroom, Nat and Sean of 30H!3 walked on to the stage wearing Lady Gaga-inspired outfits.

NYGossipGirl had the chance to talk to the group about their recent collaboration with Katy Perry on their hit song, Starstrukk.

“We met her [while she was] performing on a world tour in 2008 and we became good friends.  It was right like when her stuff is going up and then she did a tour in Europe for a bit. And so we have been kind of, you know, good friends and fans of each other’s music and live shows and stuff. I was going to work on something and then we went in the studio to remix our single for [the] radio and she was in town and down to work with us.  It was awesome.  She’s an amazing singer like I don’t know how many, you know? Sometimes it’s hard to tell I’m recording stuff for her with live voices.   She’s like a real trained singer,” said Nat.

Watch them present the Left Field Award below.
