    Wow, I can’t believe that. She was okay and everything, but the last few hosts have been way, way funnier in my opinion. I know she has a huge following but it didn’t work for the VMAs.

    one of the worst shows ever! boring,no real music stars,just trash people and too much hip hop. miss the good old days with madonna,george michael,the stones,bowie,U2,etc.

    at least GAGA rocked and took home 8 out of the 13 awards.she deserves it!

    Britney who ??=over Says:

    I thought she was great and the show was great which speaks for the massive ratings. The power of GAGA. She is the biggest pop star. Whereever she goes ratings follow. Kanye and Taylor brought in lots of ratings too with their whole drama.

    Hey Says:

    @Britney who ??=over: Wow , ur pathetic!

    GAGa=pop princess Says:

    GAGa, Taylor Rihanna, Katy and Kesha are the raining princess of pop. They bring in ratings. They are young , fierce and cool which is why people turn in than you have JT, emniem, kanye , Justin B, of course it is ratings gold.

    rhonda Says:

    the good news: the highest ratings since 2002, the bad news: all those people tuned in to see the worst show ever.

    Chelsea Handler was AWFUL, but everyone else did to, so she shouldn’t feel alone.

    LL was the funniest and the best moment was Cher and she is 64 and didn’t sing!

    The only good part of the show was Florence and the Machine, I’m glad i PVRed it and was able to fast forward over everything except for Florence and the Machine and Paramore.
