Well not exactly. There is lots of news coming out recently for all the singing competition shows. Some judges have finally been picked on one show and on another some have been replaced.
Over on American Idol, the judges have been finalized. And the judges for season 12 are: the already announced Mariah Carey, the downgraded then upgraded Randy Jackson, the crazy insane Nicki Minaj, and the country crooner Keith Urban.
The BET Awards aired their annual show last night and they should have just called the show “The Carters and Kimye” because that is all the camera cut to for most of the show. The show ran 3 1/2 hours and that is minus the pre-show. Lets’s start with the pre-show. It ran for 2 hours and was just a hot bed of ignorance and
Machine Gun Kelly performing. He’s …. enthusiastic and sadly he’s was one of the better performances on the pre-show.
Rocsi and Terrence. Ughh Why? She looks like a bedazzled hot mess. They said they are leaving 106 & Park. I need that show to end now. Terrence quitting I understand, Rocsi no. Just because you upgraded to Eddie Murphy as a boyfriend doesn’t mean you need to quit your day job because lets be real you really have no job prospects. It seems like the male former hosts of 106 &Park always end up doing bigger and better things than the show but the women always falter. I mean who has seen Julissa or Free in anything since they left the show.
Not one to watch many music videos but there are a few that I recently watched that I wanted to comment on.
John Mayer – “Shadow Days”
“Shadow Days” is the first single from Mayer’s new album, Born and Raised, out May 22nd. I love Mayer’s music. He’s just so great. I like this song and the video is minimalist at best which I also like. Sometimes you don’t need a lot to tell a story with visually about the song. I’m sad though because this will probably be it for the promotion of this album as he has had to cancel his tour because of some problems with his vocal cords.
Rihanna – “Where Have You Been”
This song is one of my favs from Rihanna’s Talk That Talk album and I didn’t know it was going to be a single but it makes sense. This video is just giving me EVERYTHING right now. I love it. She’s actually dancing in it for more than a couple of seconds and its not dutty wining. There is actual true choreography. Granted it is fairly simple but this Rihanna, do yall remember the “Pon De Replay” video? Ok so lets applaud some effort lol. Although that is like getting a medal for last place but whatever. I have to get her on her little belly dancer hip movement though. Hahah she tried but it was so stiff. Regardless this is going on repeat along with the “We Found Love” video.
Definitely slim pickings when it came to fashion at the Grammy Awards tonight. Here are the best and worst looks of the night.
Love her. I like the dress but the hair is awful. Like I said slim pickings.
This woman and do no wrong to me. Love her, love her. She looks great. Simple. Elegance
Kelly looks wonderful. Great dress and makeup. The back of her dress which can’t be seen in this pic makes her but look amazing. The dress just fit her really well.
I usually hate what she wears but she looked great here. Loved the cut outs on the side and yes she only put her hair up but its something different than her usual straight hair that is down.
She was my best dressed of the night. Some might not agree but she just owned that carpet when she walked on. Its a simple black Armani dress that she helped design with him. Love the shoes. Her makeup looks good too. The only thing I’m not a huge fan of is the hair. She looks a little like Tina Turner/Angela Basset from What’s Love Got To Do With It?
I just can’t with this outfit. Really? I love Robyn but man she needs to hire a stylist.
This dress would have been fine if she had something underneath. I don’t even understand what she was thinking with this. It makes no sense.
Nicki tried to show up Lady Gaga from last year’s show. She showed up with some guy dressed as a pope. I guess this wasn’t Nicki it was “Roman,” one of her other personalities.
The American Music Awards aired last night on ABC and it was a performance heavy show with few awards given. This is what all award shows should do. give out a few awards but let it be mostly performances and montages for the rest of the show to keep the fast pace going. Nicki Minaj opened the show with David Guetta singing their song, “Turn Me On.” Nicki did a lot of singing. There is like one line of rapping in this song and its terrible. Why is Nicki singing? Her voice was ok I guess for a rapper but I need these rappers to stop singing if they ey are not singers. She then transition into her hit song “Super Bass.”
That performance was a little better but nothing to scream about. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez apparently are huge favs of hers and have become besties. The camera kept panning to them rapping and jamming. Ugh. Her performance outfit was ok too. I don’t understand the speakers (I think they are speakers) on the outfit but whatever.
Some awards were presented. Taylor Swift won favorite country female artist. I call B.S on that one. Miranda Lambert has been slaying all flipping year. She should have taken that award. I hate that the AMAs have now become like the VMAs in that they are voted on by 13 year olds.
I can’t stand this girl and I don’t know why. I think it might be just all her cutesy stuff. I just don’t think she’s sincere at all. She had a cute dress. Very typical of the way she dresses but man that hair is awful. You have hair and makeup artists please get them to do something to your hair. Continue reading American Music Awards→
