Lame, lame, lame.
First item: the bit with the Kerry daughters and Bush twins? Painful to watch. The booing was wierd when the Kerrys walked out. Did you notice the brunette look behind her to see if it was in fact her and her sister that were being booed.
Second item: Jon Stewart sucked. Ironic that they pre-recorded a bit to hype the only supposed unpredetermined award.
Third item: Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder and Lenny Kravitz performing Highest Ground. Only highlight of the night. I couldn’t help but think there were a 1,00 or so kids around the country thinking, “Hey cool. They’re covering the Chili Peppers!” Sway’s comment afterward about “History being made on stage here tonight” was a bit overdone, though, as I seem to recall Stevie showing up to perform with Will Smith a few years ago.
Fourth item: Is MTV going to make Andre 3000 close every award show with Hey Ya until he dies? And having young people walk into voting booths on stage? Oy.
Fifth item: Anyone want to make bets on who was in the Sasquatch costume? I say Will Ferrell. But then again, I say Will Ferrell for everything.
