Anyone watching? Justin Bieber is accepting an award and making me very uncomfortable.

Kelly Clarkson performs in 5 minutes! Weeee!

Wow Katy Perry. That was some serious self promotion going on there. A little OTT.

Kelly looked and sounded great.

Love that song from Kelly but I wish she didn't just stand there and sing it. It has something extra on tour when she can move around and get into it more. She is looking so good lately, though.

This is the first time I have ever seen The Wanted perform. They are kind of odd but a few of them are very good looking.

One guy sounds like he has a speech impediment or something when he sings and I think they put autotune on his mic. Is he horrible live or something?

I always wonder if this song has a double meaning. :shuffle:

Why is it I turn on my TV for this and the first thing I see is Chris Brown? :scream:

Adding... How in the FECK did they beat someone like Adele? LMFAO? really? They're terrible!

and now Bieber... lip synching...

Is this a sign of the apocalypse? Maybe that whole Mayan thing about the world ending this year isn't that far off...

I quit watching because apparently the awards go to whomever is there. What's the point? I know Adele did not lose out on these awards.

LMFAO over Adele? :yikes:

On what planet!? I quit watching after they won a second "award."

05-21-2012, 02:44 AM
To be fair, LMFAO has had Party Rock Anthem on the Billboard charts for a VERY long time and it might even set a record for the longest stay if it can hang on. So I can see that single winning its categories. But Taylor Swift winning over Adele? Taylor is no longer the chart dominator she used to be.

PRA is certainly catchy and I'll give it that. But the idea that they could win over someone like Adele just seems so intrinsically wrong!

But these awards are decided (supposedly) by the numbers. No votes. They use Billboard chart positions over the last year (March 2011 to Feb 2012 I think) and some other things like social media. I think they stick to it except in the case of absences by the winners and then they give it to whomever is next in line or they find a way to manipulate the numbers.

Oh crap.. Whitney tribute might make me all teary and emotional...

ETA - Blah, Pat Houston got her way up on the stage...

Any awards show that has 'talent' like LMFAO beating Adele for any awards is SO not worth my time. Glad I'm not watching although I'm bummed to have missed Kelly Clarkson's performance.

What is all the crotch grabbing about? It seems like most of the men do this, while they are performing.
