    Rihanna was horrible as the opening act and from there on I knew that it would be boring. As the opening act you’re supposed to help set the tone and bring the excitement. She has some of the most pumped up and exciting music yet she can’t convert it in performances for nothing at award shows.
    I knew Kevin would be blah since he isn’t funny to me anyway.

    I hate to get nostalgic, but times like tonight are why I miss artists from the past and why I miss MTV from the past (when they played videos NOT only for an hour in the morning) . I remember when MTV had exciting moments and performances that were talked about the next few days.
