A new crop of MTV Movie Awards performances are almost here! Seeing which stars snag a popcorn trophy is just one reason to tune in every year -- but truthfully, what's more exciting, interesting and all around inspiring are the MTV Movie Award performances. It’s the music that keeps us coming back, yearning for more. Who is performing? What will they do? We’re all just music junkies who want a fix.

In the past, the MTV Movie Awards have churned out fantastic performances by some of the best and brightest stars in the music industry. Sure, given the title, the event is about movies. But who doesn’t love taking a break from the banality of watching two actors -- who usually hold an immense amount of apathy on their faces -- reading from a prompter about an award that neither were nominated for? That performance break is where the show really shines. It’s the same reason we watch MTV. We love music!

The musical performances that MTV gives its fans are top notch in the realm of award ceremonies. It is for this reason, as well as more, that we at Popcrush present to you the Top 10 MTV Movie Awards Performances, just in time for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on June 3.
