Melissa McCarthy: Ladies and gentlemen — Imagine Dragons!

Imagine Dragons:
“Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa

I’m waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I’m breathing in the chemicals

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive

I raise my flags, don my clothes
It’s a revolution, I suppose
We’ll paint it red to fit right in
Whoa

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive

All systems go, the sun hasn’t died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside.”

Kendrick Lamar:
“Bury me alive, bury me with pride.
Bury me with berries, that forbidden fruit and cherry wine.
Thank you berry much, but tonight’s my night
and I’m Barry Bonds swinging for the fences, barbaric Kendrick in idle time.
Everything in life’s subject to change, change whip, change grind.
Change clothes, change opinions, right before I change my mind.
I don’t really know yah business, been in there since I was bending Lego blocks.
Now you tell the world about me, dry snitch, tater tots on my shotgun.
Now I gotta pop one at the stars.
Sky’s the limit, I gotta finish as the first rapper on Mars.
Mark my word, I’ma make my mark, even when they start their Martial Law.
Even when these Martians alienate, my mental state is still at heart.
Look in my eyes, tell me I died, tell me I tried, to compromise.
Tell me you love me, tell me that I, don’t really care and can barely decide.
Wishing good luck on my enemies, all of my energy go to the almighty God.
I could drown in a bottle of Hennessy, with no amenities, I’m getting better with time.
Yeah!!”

Imagine Dragons:
“I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive!”
