Best Rendition of a Children's Show Theme Song: Chance the Rapper
Every act at Governors Ball could rely on a contingency of their fans to show up and sing along during their set, but Chicago MC Chance the Rapper packed the entire Gotham Tent with mega-supporters –a crowd comprised predominantly of women in their late-teens and early-20s who even sang along to particularly verbose mixtape cuts like "Paranoia" and "Juice." The energy in the tent was infectious, and Chance kept bursting into impromptu dance breaks so intense that he had to start to removing layers, eventually ending up shirtless.
Halfway through, though, he played one song that the audience didn't recognize immediately. Hearing saccharine lyrics like, "Every day when you're walking down the street/And everybody that you meet/Has an original point of view." The crowd was at first confused but then realized that they were hearing a jazzed-up version of the theme song from the long-running PBS children's show Arthur. When it dawned on them that they had actually known the lyrics to the track for at least a decade, the people in the crowd swayed to that, too. C.D.
