MTV did not disappoint with last night’s Video Music Awards a.k.a. The VMAs. There were great performances by future mama, Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kanye and Chris Brown. Of course, our girl Lady Gaga kept it kooky by staying in character as her alter ego, Jo Calderone. It was great to see Britney Spears receive a VMA honor. She’s been through a lot over the past few years. She deserves to be recognized as a talented, dynamic performer and a trendsetter. Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj kept everyone entertained with their big, bright fashions. The dedication to Amy Winehouse was cool, but sad, at the same time. Her video with the legendary singer, Tony Bennett, shows she could have evolved into a great jazz singer. It was one of the best music awards shows I’ve seen in a long time. Maybe this will raise the bar and give other awards programs the motivation to be more creative with the shows they present to honor music artists.
