June 2009 Edit
During the summer of 2009, MTV.com officially revived the Unplugged franchise with a 6-episode season produced and directed by Matthew C. Mills of Spacestation. It was the first time Unplugged was shot in HD. Artists in this incarnation were Adele, Silversun Pickups, All Time Low, Paramore, Vampire Weekend, and Katy Perry. The shows debuted on unplugged.mtv.com while single song excerpts appear on MTV and Palladia in video rotation. Palladia also aired some of the full shows. The revamped series was stripped of pretense and made more sparse. The result was the Unplugged series' first Emmy win.
Adele: Unplugged premiered on Palladia June 26, 2009.
