The Rundown

MTV Video Music Awards – Miley Shocked, JT Rocked

20130826-020047.jpg

The biggest highlight of the MTV VMAs came when Justin Timberlake’s former boy-band buddies joined him onstage for an NSync reunion. JT himself had already, up until then, put on a fantastic and passionate performance that made me forget there was a time when, as an actor, he wouldn’t talk about his return to music. But it’s telling that a 90’s flashback became the star attraction. Nostalgia for the good ol’ days?

For the first time the MTV VMAs were held in Brooklyn which meant I got to have my first MTV VMA experience. Being inside the Barclay’s Center also meant I got to see – albeit from a distance – little moments that happen in the ad-breaks, like Lady Gaga, still in her sea-shell bikini getup jump up, hug John Legend and twirl him around, and Will Smith and son Jaden jam along to Justin Timberlake.

As far as the show goes, as mentioned, Timberlake rocked, before that, Miley Cyrus shocked. Twitter has you covered with reaction and GIFs of that. Kanye was short but twisted heart-felt, as were Macklemore + Ryan Lewis, who performed their LGBT-rights anthem Same Love, with Jennifer Hudson joining Mary Lambert on vocals.

But I pined for the rock element of music. The DJ played plenty of Nirvana and Aerosmith during the ad-breaks, but it was missing from the stage show. Never mind that best rock category wasn’t even announced during the show.

The winners then…

Best Pop – Selena Gomez, Come and Get It
