VMA 2010 Round Up


Last night was one of the biggest nights for the music industry. I'm sure that all of you watched the MTV VMA's. If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know I was tweeting my thoughts live, but of course, I promised a full article. First, I want to say that I was somewhat disappointed by the performances. Of course, there is always that one performance that stands up from the rest. This year, I definitely believe that Florence + Machine gave the performance of her life! I was amazed by the range and quality of her voice. While most artist needed aid, or auto-tuning to sing, she let her voice soar above all the other performances, which is why I want to give her a special shout-out and also congratulate her on her the award for best Art Direction. Some other notable moments of the night were Lady Gaga announcing her new record "Born This Way" along with winning Video of the Year, and Justin Bieber winning Best New Artist.
Now, to address the next issue at hand. I've been receiving tons of tweets asking whether or not I thought Justin Bieber lip synced his performance or not. I watched it over a few times and came to this conclusion. That first run from "U Smile" was definitely his own voice, but after that the performance was pre-recorded. It's not that Bieber just played the studio recording of his song, but he definitely recorded it earlier, and then played it back with his mic on low. There's no way that someone could sing like that, and dance how Bieber was dancing at the same time. Sorry to disappoint you guys! But before you guys say I'm just hating on Justin Bieber I want to say that he deserved that award for "Best New Artist." People may not like him or his type of music, but I remember seeing Justin Bieber years ago when I was browsing You Tube artist, and he does have a good voice. You can't take away the fact that the kid has talent. So congratulations to him as well! Also, congratulations to all the other winners! I hope you enjoyed the VMA's and hopefully I'll be there next year!
