Be Our Guest: Adam DeVine & Hailee Steinfeld Spoof 'Beauty & the Beast' at MTV Movie & TV Awards
Emma Watson was delighted, of course.
The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards started not with a bang but with a large, furry man and an undercover Belle on the night of Sunday, May 7.
Adam DeVine, who hosted the event, rocked a highly convincing Beast costume while audience member and nominee Hailee Steinfeld de-clothed mid-performance to reveal a striking yellow dress — a dress not dissimilar to the one Emma Watson wore in the recent Beauty and the Beast live-action remake.
Steinfeld, 20, and DeVine, 33, made a dapper pair as they performed together on stage. At some point during the spoof, the two were also joined by actors Josh Gad, Rebel Wilson, and Mike Colter.
It all looked a little something like this:
The fabulous Beast is revealed...
...aand enter Rebel Wilson as Mrs. Potts.
At one point, the stage erupted in flames as DeVine swung from a chandelier to meet Steinfeld's Belle in a safer spot.
"That could not have gone better!" the comedian exclaimed as said chandelier crashed onto the ground.
But Watson's reaction was really the performance highlight.
Steinfeld not only attended to partake of the magic above, but was nominated for Best Actor in a Movie for her role in Edge of Seventeen.
The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards airs on MTV 8 p.m. PST.
