    Only because I wanted to watch Once Upon a Time and didn't realize it had been preempted.

    Does anyone actually sing anymore or is it all (literally in this case) smoke and mirrors?

    I don't think so, which is sad or makes me old.

    Bieber is attempting to sing but it sounds like a cat is being tortured by being taken by the tail and swung around... :scream:

    I only want to see Maroon 5 who already won for Moves Like Jagger. I'm flipping back and forth between CBS waiting for TAR to see if I catch them.

    I am so upset that Kelly Clarkson is performing Mr. Know It all instead of her soon to be SMASH single What Doesn't Kill You but this wouldn't be a Kelly Clarkson album era without some REALLY stupid decisions. The performance should be neat, they are doing something different, but the song has all but run its course on radio as it is.

    Don't get me wrong I love the entire new album and What Doesn't Kill You is a great song, but I think Mr. Know It All has a bit of a more radio friendly edge to it and that's probably why the decision tonight, it will probably appeal to the masses more.

    Thanks for giving me the the heads up about Kelly. I only had to watch a bit of Chris Brown's bad dancing (I thought he was supposed to be talented) before her number. She looked and sounded great! Does anyone else try to see if they know any of the dancers from SYTYCD. They often are hired for these shows.

    :yikes: at Jennifer Lopez's outfit and her insistence on performing on her hands and knees during parts of this song. :scream:

    I admit I don't care for her in general and I also hate flesh colored outfits. She really didn't stand a chance with me! :slinkaway

    It's a matter of opinion. She's not my favorite by a longshot but she's alright for what it is.

    And now OneRepublic is making my ears bleed...

    Marc Anthony looks like a troll but his voice makes me tingle in unnamed places.

    Reba tweeted, "Jennifer, Jennifer, Jennifer . . ." about half an hour ago. Anyone know what that might have been about? :)

    Two Observations about Adam Levine tonight.

    1) That man is sex on a stick
    2) The man is terrible live (at least tonight)

    Reba's hardly the morals police! I just wondered which Jennifer she was talking about and why. (I haven't been watching, I just happened to see her tweet scroll by.)

    Jennifer Lopez did a very risque dance performance before, lots of ripping of clothes being ripped off, crawling on the stage, sexually suggestive dancing...

    I love great live vocals and I love the song "Good Life," but I would rather watch JLo lip-sync and dance the hell out of her performance than listen to Ryan Tedder struggle on pretty much the entire song. :shuffle:
