MTV Video Awards
Am watching it right now. I was glad that Franz Ferdinand won the Breakthrough Video. And I was disappointed with the bands that they chose to perform except for Jet and the Polyphonic Spree, although it lacked some energy. I wondered why The Polyphonic Spree wore different colored robes. I think they shoud have sticked to their usual white robes and sang Light and Day. The performance I liked the most was Alicia Keys with Stevie Wonder (I used to call her a woman Stevie) with Lenny Kravitz singin' Higher Ground (a Red Hot Chili Peppers song and a Stevie classic). I also loved it when Stevie Wonder was playing his harmonica when Alicia was singin' her song. Funny how before, bands used to get the pyrotechnics. Now the hip-hop groups are getting it while the bands get the strobes instead. Haha! I was disappointed at a lot of winners. And of course, Usher won a couple. He is hot, I must say. Some hits and a lot of misses. Overall, the awards sucked! It was hecka weak!
