The Stellar and the Shocking Performances of the 2013 VMAS

vmas_fianl VMAS')"> So last night the much antic­i­pated Video Music Awards on MTV pre­miered with a stel­lar  open­ing per­for­mance from Lady Gaga. She first appeared in this weird futur­is­tic nun out­fit and con­tin­ued to have three sep­a­rate cos­tume changes dur­ing one num­ber. I liked the song and per­for­mance but find Lady Gaga to be grasp­ing at straws to stay rel­e­vant and unique. I still do not think she is as good as Madonna but still enter­tain­ing none the less.

The most talked about per­for­mance of the night had to have been Miley Cyrus’s per­for­mance to her hit song ” We can’t stop”. I per­son­ally love Miley and her style and was look­ing for­ward to this song and per­for­mance. Well I am sure you heard about it but just in case you live under a rock here is the break down of last night’s per­for­mance. Miley comes out of a huge Gummy bear wear­ing the strangest teddy bear jump suit leo­tard com­plete with two mini balls on her head. She pokes her head out of the bear and sticks her tongue out grossly over and over again as if she is a lizard. She dances, sings with an group of dancers dressed as giant gummy bears and then it gets really strange.

Dur­ing the per­for­mance she con­tin­ues to dance provoca­tively while grab­bing her pri­vates over and over again. The cam­era pans to show the shocked and dis­gusted faces of celebri­ties in the audi­ence. The whole time I am watch­ing this per­for­mance I just feel com­pletely embar­rassed and sad for her. As if this is not bad enough Robin Thicke then joins the stage for a duet of his song “blurred lines”. Miley peels off her teddy bear out­fit to reveal a nude bikini that melts into her bone thin body. She then pro­ceeds to point and grab at Robin’s pri­vates with a large foam fin­ger.  As if the point­ing to his pri­vates is not bad enough she then bends over and does the jer­sey turn­pike all over Robin Thicke. I felt like I was at a cheap strip show and not watch­ing a super­star perform.

The strangest part was at the end when the cam­eras pan to Miley’s mother who stands up and gives her a stand­ing ova­tion! This reminded me so much of Dina Lohan and Lind­sey Lohan, seri­ously what is she on? BTW inter­est­ing note her fiancee was nowhere at the show. Would you be embar­rassed? What do you think is up with Miley? I am very sad for her and hope that she learns that this is not the way to suc­ceed in this business.

Justin Tim­ber­lake and Nsync per­form the much antic­i­pated reunion but a major dis­s­ap­point­ment. I love Justin Tim­ber­lake but felt his 15 minute per­for­mance was a bit long and the reunion was less than half of one song. Justin could have sang a com­bi­na­tion of his old hits and then some of his new songs but could have more than just one song with his old band mates. I felt a lit­tle bad for them to have only got­ten half of a song then ush­ered away so Justin could con­tinue to per­form. I under­stand it was Justin’s night since he was up for a very big award but still I felt that NSync played such a huge part of his career it should have been high­lighted more. What do you think? Did you think the reunion was good or was it a disappointment?

The best part of the whole show was the final per­for­mance by Katy Perry. This was an awe­some per­for­mance of her new song ” Roar”. I have to say Katy Perry never dis­ap­points me and this was by far the best moment for me. Over­all the show was a typ­i­cal award show but the shock­ing and sad per­for­mance by Miley Cyrus was by far the most last­ing impres­sion. What was your opin­ion on her per­for­mance? What was your favorite moment at this year’s VMAS?
