Those of you fond of criticizing the lack of music on MTV, take note: The network's venerable Unplugged series returns on Sunday with a performance by British indie-poppers Florence and the Machine. It'll be the first of eight shows planned for this year, with The Civil Wars and Dierks Bentley already on tap to record episodes.
Unplugged has been responsible for some terrific, intimate performances from a wide range of performers over the past 20 years, from Nirvana to Shakira. It'll be good to have it back for another round. Craig Hlavaty wrote about some of the show's best moments last year.
It hasn't all been great, though. Credit MTV for taking a few risks, I guess, because Unplugged has a tendency to get weird. Will Sunday's episode veer into the surreal? We'll be watching to find out. In the meantime, enjoy ten of the head-scratchingest moments from the show's brilliant-but-spotty run.
