Growing up in the 90s, I gotta admit that if I would compare (and they really should be compared), the following performances after 2009 are horseshit. Can’t use apeshit since I have used it in a previous entry already. *evil laugh*
Let’s start with the opening.
I thought they were not in good terms, but to hell with it.
Opening songs/performance – It should be catchy. It’s the icebreaker (feeling music analyst). People should jump out of their seats. People should shit bricks and rainbows. People should be surprised. It should be a matter of life and death performance (that people would talk about for years); just because Taytay and Nicki were not in good terms days before the performance – I think they used this one. But it’s not something that people will talk about for years. It’s not something valuable to the music industry. It should be a celebration of music and not a quick fix. It basically should be like this:
I know, I know. It’s Michael Jackson and Slash but, there would be a better performance that I think would show vindication. The ones I could think of for this year is:
- Taylor Swift singing Bad Blood back to back with Walk the Moon’s Shut Up and Dance
- Walk the Moon’s Shut Up and Dance back to back with The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face
- Walk the Moon’s Shut Up and Dance back to back with OMI’s Cheerleader
- Walk the Moon’s Shut Up and Dance back to back with OMI’s Cheerleader back to back with Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk
See, there are a lot of choices. Why this one?
The audience – It wasn’t as good as before because the kings and queens of music were not present. You would really feel the value of the artists when there are other co-artists willing and wasting time to take a seat upfront of the arena to be excited for this awards show. The whole time that I was watching I kept on saying, “Where’s JT? Usher? Beyonce? Jay-Z? Madonna? Maroon 5? Ed Sheeran? Red Hot?” and many more.
The nominees – I’m sorry but like 50% of the nominees does not ring a bell
The presentors – I’m sorry but like 30% of the presentors does not ring a bell (copy, paste and edit)
The fashion – I’m sorry but like 10% of the outfits does ring a bell for someone who took a medication of Shawshank pills (copy, paste and edit part 2)
Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award – I am not going to disagree with the recipient but he should have rocked it out with a performance other than a very indefinite but longing candidacy speech.
Of course the best performance and speech of this recipient for me is:
He really showed how rightful he is for this award.
Which EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE DONE.
What do you think of the VMAs, I mean Fail-MAs?
