MMVA: Much Music Video Awards

Spread the love

You may or may not know that the Much Music Video Awards were tonight. I decided to watch it as nothing else was on. Honestly, I love music but have never felt the need to watch much programming ABOUT music, let alone award shows. I don’t watch the Oscars or Tonys or Golden Globes or anything either. It’s just not for me.

Actually, the thing I never got about award ceremonies was the 2 hour or more show BEFORE hand that shows all the stars showing up to the ceremony. I just didn’t get what was interesting about people getting out of limos. However again, because there was nothing better to do, I watched the pre-show. I must say I was wrong. I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to see a pre-show again but I enjoyed seeing what the artists looked like. Some I knew because of other shows or their music videos but especially for the groups, you don’t really get a good look at them. They are usually moving too fast and it’s darker. At the pre-show, I got to see them standing fairly still in broad daylight. It was a nice change. I actually learned a few things. Like Joss Stone is a girl and Alexisonfire are guys and Perez Hilton is actually a guy, not a nickname for Paris Hilton (go ahead, laugh at me, I can take it.)

The part I liked best about the award show was the live performances. I’m not too big on live shows usually because they often sound nothing like they do on CD where they have the benefit of special sound effects to make them sound better. For example I was disappointed when Fergie sang Fergilicious. It didn’t sound good at all. Then there was The Used and Alexisonfire, who were pretty much just screaming. I’m sure it sound the same on CD. I couldn’t believe it when at the end of the performance by the Used, they started saying the F-word over and over and the whole audience had their middle fingers up and shouting it back. That’s just what I would want my teenager listening too oh yeah! NOT!

If anybody is reading this [ :) ], I’d like to know if you watched it or not. What did you think?
