Host Adam Devine (R) and actor Hailee Steinfeld perform onstage during the 2017 MTV Movie And TV Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on May 7, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Host Adam Devine kicked off Sunday's MTV Movie & TV Awards ceremony in Los Angeles with a musical parody paying homage to the 2017 blockbusters Logan and Beauty and the Beast.

"An exciting format change. A brand, new rivalry, film star Lil Rel, now Eleven's here as well, movies and TV," Devine— dressed as Beast—sang and danced around the Shrine Auditorium stage, which was decorated like a fairytale, palace ballroom.

Spotting Hugh Jackman in the audience, Devine remarked: "Hugh Jackman's here! I'm the Beast and you're Wolverine. We're like the same guy, right?"

Devine then coaxed Beauty and the Beast star Josh Gad on stage to sing a tribute to Jackman's latest Wolverine movie Logan to the tune of "Gaston."

When DeVine declared from the stage, "I need a Belle!" actress Hailee Steinfeld sprang from her seat and replied, "I'm in!" doffing her long coat to reveal a yellow gown, much to the delight of Emma Watson, who played the heroine in Beauty and the Beast.

Comic actress Rebel Wilson then joined the ensemble wearing a giant tea kettle costume to portray Mrs. Potts. The number ended with Devine swinging from a crystal chandelier onto a table in the audience.
