The 2007 MTV Music Video Awards got off to an award start and never seemed to recover. The much hyped Britney Spears opener was a disaster. Britney Spears’ dance moves were lethargic and not very interesting. She didn’t even try to lip sync and was very boring. It was funny hearing Sarah Silverman proceed to play the hell out of her afterwards. Sarah had a funny comment with, “I think it’s cute he is still alive(50 Cent),” But after that she lost me, talking about diarrhea, wtf? Chris Brown didn’t do a good job at lip syncing either but his dance moves made up for it. He delivered one of the better performances of the night. Rihanna was looking thicker during her quick performance of Umbrella(Where was Jay-Z).
MTV’s new concept of having performances take place in party rooms may of looked great on paper but was a mess on television. The big drawn out performances on center stage is what people want to see, not performances in small rooms with a sometimes dead crowd. The energy and camera angles just weren’t there. Kanye’s room did look popping though.
Alicia Keys did her thing and was looking on point. 50 Cent & Kanye West presenting an award together was a dud, they should of let them makes some jokes or something. I see people making a big deal over 50 & Beyonce not kissing, it’s not that serious. You guys noticed how bouncy Beyonce was on her way to the stage? Timbaland’s mix to end the show was ok but didn’t seem like a closer. Not really sure why MTV put him last, he was just trying to give his artist some shine. Overall MTV tried some new things but I don’t think they were executed well. The show had more than enough star power but didn’t
-Dr.Dre has turned into the incredible hulk
-Wtf was Lil Mama wearing?
-LOL@ Tommy Lee & Kid Rock fighting and everyone pointing out Rockers fight too, not only rappers.
It appears Kanye West was tight about not opening the show. Kanye West said this about Britney:”I can’t believe she would perform,” She hasn’t had a hit record in years.” Kanye went on to say this about not opening the show, “Maybe my money’s not right. Maybe my skin’s not right.”
Kanye West went on to say he will never return to MTV after the award show. This was due to him leaving the night with 0 awards. He states: That’s two years in a row, man … give a black man a chance.”
