View Full Version : Billboard Music Awards = Pretty bad production value.

1. They read the "losers" in accending order and the "winner" last, as opposed to reading all the contenders and then the winner. This results in the winner often looking confused since they haven't heard their name read, even though I'm sure they already know they're nominated.

2. Nichole Ritchie said "fuck" and "shit" and it didn't get beeped out.

3. When Ryan Seacrest went to do an intro, the spotlight went out. Solution? He held a flashlight into his own face and awkwardly read a monitor upside down. Badly.

That's all for now, I've got 35 more minutes.

p.s. Shania, please start wearing sexy outfits again, instead of 1980's style "Parachute Pants". Thank you.

We rolled the Tivo back after this happened. It was hilarious, because She said a "shit" that *did* get muted, then there was a split second cut to the "title screen" (for lack of a better term...It had the title of the awards show and a picture of the statue), then it went back to Paris and Nicole, and then she dropped the S and the F bomb that was plain as day, neither one was beeped or muted.

I imagine someone's gettin' fired for that one.

Does Shania Twain wear sexy outfits? I mean, SHE'S sexy, but all the outfits I see her in look like they were bought at the Clown Surplus Store.
