The ceremony this year was a bit of a hit and miss but a couple of household name divas came to the rescue and saved the day for MTV and its audience. Still, the show had more misses than hits and here’s the tea on everything.
The numbers of viewers were lower than last year, MTV said that it was because more people watched on-line rather than on television.
Expectations were high for this year’s show but unfortunately they didn’t delivered. The lack of energy was palpable, some presenters looked forced and the jokes attempts failed miserably.
The Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award was given to Rihanna, her performance was done in 4 sets throughout the night, she performed a medley of some of her biggest hits like “What’s My Name”, “Diamonds” and the recent “Work”.
She had a big production, some hot and fierce outfits.
She went all out with the sexiness and attitude, from the Barbados ghetto inspired, to a pink fluffy dream, to a very sexy and fierce sort of superhero.
She gave sass, great vocals and great choreography. She ended with a lovely performance backed by an orchestra.
Handsome rapper Drake was the one to introduce and give Rihanna her award, he couldn’t have gushed more over her, it was sweet, borderline awkward. She certainly looked very embarrassed.
Their chemistry felt obvious and that fuelled the media even more about their alleged relationship.
Rihanna and Drake should just tell the world that they are in love and put all the rumours to rest.
Ariana Grande was joined on stage by the queen of rap Nicki Minaj to perform Ariana’s “Side To Side” and what started good ended up icy to say the least. Both divas normally serve sparkles and fire but this time something went wrong as their interaction looked icy.
They looked amazing, the song is good but it’s a shame that on this performance thing went south, not even having all those hunks around helped the situation.
And they weren’t the only ones to disappoint, Nick Jona’s performance of “Bacon” was terrible, super cheesy and strange.
More to come…
