8:06 Finally, "sexyback". But there are supposed to be like 20 girls up there doing some kick ass dancing routine. Not him working the stage like Bono.
8:08 Jack Black in a moonman suit!
8:09 Jack Black in an Elvis Suit!
8:11 Montell Williams? Was that really him? He was on camera for 1/2 a second.
8:12 Woah! The Raconteurs with LOU REED. He's so cool . . . Tonight the Raconteurs are the "house band". who knows what that means. . .
8:14 Charlie Bird is really enjoying this show. He laughs when people laugh, is thrilled with everyone applauding and bouncing to the music.
8:15 Isn't Lil Kim out of Jail? She's on stage in an orange jumpsuit and police escourt. Oh, they stripped her of the suit and she's announcing an award.
8:17 Best Male Video goes to James Blunt, Beautiful.
8:21 First commercial break. Disappointed with the opening overall. Expected so much more from Jack Black.
8:27 Black Eyed Peas win best hip hop video for My Humps. are they really hip hop? Oh god, they just plugged their website and Idlewile for Andre 3000 who presented the award.
8:29 The Rock announces a performance by SHAKIRA! Of course Wyclef is there too. oh man, she's wearing really cool traditinal sari-type belly dancing outfits. Charlie Bird is JAMMING and SINGING his squawking lungs out. DAMN, that girl can shake her ass! She looks like she is having so much fun . . . good for her :) I love the india thing they are doing. That was contagious, had to get up and dance for a bit. I think I wouldn't mind being her for a bit.
8:35 Jackass. Hey do they really do that stuff? Oh my god. There's blood!
8:36 Raconteurs again, sans Lou Reed.
8:41 My guy LL Cool J up there with 50 Cent. LL is a little blingy tonight - no the jewels, but the hoodie. The are announcing best female video. I don't know if it's a mistake or on purpose, but the backstage audio is playing over them. like "jennifer lopez to stage left" the same time they are talking.
8:44 Kelly Clarkson wins for Best Female Video for Because of You. She's not there to accept :( I like here. She would have been cute accepting the award.
8:45 Farell and Ludacris perform Shake Your Moneymaker. Cool opening. Girls dancing, fire shooting all over the place, and they walk out of a safe with huge gold bricks. But I'm not into this song so I can take a quick packing break. . . .
8:55 AWESOME Bob Dylan iPod commercial. Must be a song off his new album.
8:57 Jack Black in gold lamee! Tenacious D guy in crazy moonman suit.
8:59 Ick, Jessica Simpson. Wearin an short, short dress. Big surprise. She looks cute with her short hair though. Can she be any more annoying though? Oh god, she just said she's just a white girl who can't dance but can only "push her tush" and did some crazy booty shake. Then she fucked up reading the promt.
9:01 What???? Shakira DID NOT WIN BEST DANCE VIDEO? Come on! Hips Don't Lie totally makes you want to shake it. Pussycat Dolls won for Buttons. Puke. And they are all out on stage in various shades of Gold Lame. I guess it must be back. Uh, they're crapping how heavy the moon man award is. Now they are showing Shakira looking sad. This is just wrong. That definately has to be worst acceptance speech of the night. They are so annoying.
9:10 The commercials are as good as during the superbowl! I may be liking them better than the show so far - except for Shakira's performance.
9:13 Whe do they call Jack White, the snowboarded, the Chairman of the Board? Uh Oh, Jackass is on again. ooohh nooo. this guy stick out his tongue and lets a live lobster pinch it with it's claws. he's drooling all over the place. gross. they keep doing jackass stunts to get people to vote for the viewers choice awards.
9:15 Paris Hilton in some type of sassy 50's prom girl outfit with boots. She announces the All American Rejects performing Move Along. They are pretty good live.
9:19 oh my god, nicole ritchie's arms . . . she is so skinny. gross.
9:21 Pink wins Best Pop Video for Stupid Girl. That is a funny video. But another one Shakira lost. Pink is cool, she's so nonchelant. She totally reminds me of my cousin!
9:24 Charlie decides it snuggle time. He wants to snuggle and play!
9:29 Snoop Dog in the house. Walking on stage drinking a glass of juice . . . uh huh. LOL, he just called himself the dogfather. He's announcing Best Rap Video. Says he needs to smoke something but can't on tv so he's gonna drink something instead. a drink sounds good right now . . . wonder if i have any wine in the fridge. Chamillionaire won. Don't know if i saw that video or not. But i like him. He gave a nice speech.
9:34 Way cool! The whole place lights up with red police sirens on the screen. Beyonce came flying down from the ceiling in a trenchcoat. Some chick with a huge afro is playing some mean electric guitar. Then it gets ruined with a regular beyonce song. I'm afraid for her to take off the trench coat and see that kind of trashy outfit she has on. Uh oh, we're getting a peack of black leather hotpants and some kick ass boots. Performance = good. Song = bad. Uh oh, spoke too soon. Some military police people grabbed her and they are acting out some type of interrogation scene or something like that. But wait, things are improving . . .Why does it always look cool when 15 black girls stand in a group formation and are all wearing the same outfit do a bunch of dramitic dance moves together. Makes up for the lousy song - some fun choreography with just sound effects and no singing. The coat just came off and the outfit is pretty horrible but you know what, she's up on stage and performing here so it's okay. If she were just wearing it out on the street, no.
9:44 they announced that Shakira won best choreography in a video for Hips Don't Lie. Missy Elliott won for Best Special Effects in a Video for Run This. That is an awesome video. Guess those were presented before they aired the show. Too bad, I'd like to see Shakira give an acceptance speech. Maybe she'll win viewer's choice.
9:45 Puffy looking sharp. Had to throw in a plug for an album. The diamond in his ring is bigger than my thumbnail.
9:47 Hell Ya! Lean wit it. T.I. in an awesome performance with a word "King" in huge letter behind him. Sounds like a sing along. Oh, they have a ton of kids up on stage singing with them!
9:51 Taylor and Tristen decide it's play time! They are running all over the place.
9:52 Since when is Jared Leto so androgynous? I used to love him on that show with Claire Daines. He and the girl from Evanescence announce nominees for Best Group Video. The All American Rejcts win. They look SO HAPPY. Their moon man fell apart too.
10:02 They is actually an award for Ringtone of the year. In one way, cool because they are acknowledging new technology. In the other way . . . what the hell? Fort Minor wins for Where'd You Go. This totally reminds me of Chris missing CT.
10:05 Fall Out Boy is announcing . . . wait, is he wearin a cape? they are all in like 19th century sherlock holmes clothes or something like that. They announce Panic at the Disco who of course performs I write sins and not tragedies. This is a really cool set. They are in these goth kind of clothes. There are a ton of LCD screens with plack and white tere branches. Lead guy has on a huge tophat with red diamonds on it which matches his velvet vest. Girls come out all earling these 19th century ball gown and are dancing around. Kind of reminds me of that Pat Benetar video - love is a battle field. Okay, this is a great performance I expect on the VMAs. Really creative and entertaining. The band sounds good live too. I'm sure this one will pop up on you tube. Girls are showing their garter belts and confetti is dropping down from the cieling. how fun!
10:09 uh oh, fergie is up. charlie must like her because he's talking to her! she's announcing best new artist. the girl from the little mis sunshine movie came out and is trying to dance. i guess it's cute cuz she's a kid. she said she's excited cuz she just got to dance at the vmas - oh that is cute. She can't say the name of the song . . . Avenged Sevenfold wins for Bat Country.
10:21 oh god, prego britney and k fed. they don't even appear. it's some stupid prerecorded thing. Beyonce and Snoop Dog win it for Check on it. Wow, Beyonce looks good now. Actually classy in a glamorous dress. I think that's when sh e looks best cuz she's so beautiful.
10:24 Kanye West. He's so cool, just walking out on stage. He's presenting the video vanguard award. He's saying it is for the greatest "filmmaker" of all time and he claims that videos are actually films. It's for Hype Williams. I've never heard of him before but I guess the video makers aren't really as well known as the artists. looks like he did alot of rap and hip hop stuff. they're showing biggie, tupak, jay z, puff, and a ton of people i don't know at all. but the videos are all cool. mariah, gwen, j lo got flashed up there too. Cool! African dancers wearing DAY GLO WAR PAINT. How fun. What's uip with gold lamee? buster rhymes wearing a gold lame turban. this is a really cool presentation. they cut lots of videos. various missy videos on now.
10:29 MISSY ELLIOTT! she's continuing the presentation for Hype Williams with a kick ass live performance. She's in a black sumo suit and riding in a tiny kid electronic car.
10:31 Hype Williams takes the stage. Wow, he has alot of respect from all the performers there. That is nonice to see. The stage is packed and it looks like everyone is giving him a standing ovation.
10:35 Sarah Silverman reams Paris Hilton.
10:42 Christina Aguilera all marilyn monroe like singing. gorgeous red dress. uh oh, guess charlie bird likes her voice too.
10:47 Lou Reed and Pink. They are cool. but pink starts singing some "dear mr. president" song . . . what's that? Ha ha, Lou Reed asks MTv to play more rock and roll. People stand and cheer. They are presenting Best Rock Video. Love Lou Reed's tshirt. AFI wins for Miss Murder. They're totally jazzed that they are up on stage with lou reed and won. Wow, the lead singer has on a nice set of fake eyelashes and some snazzy blue eyeshadow.
10:51 The Raconteurs with Billy Williams, one of the guys with the long beards from ZZ Top.
10:59 Black Eyed Peas announce award for Best Hip Hop Fusion Video. Kyle from Tenacious D is up there with the Black Eyed Peas. He says he's in the peas now. Trying to be funny. Okay, but to see Jack Black running around the suit in a gold lame suit is hysterical. the rest of it i don't get. Tenacious D perform some type of goofy song but theyr'e good. Jack Black cracks me up when he sings.
11:02 I thought this show was going to done by 11pm. I'm going to be up forever!
11:04 The cast of jackass announce viewers choice award. i think this is the best award of the night because us little folks actually vote. i didn't this year. i should have. i'd have voted for shakira. she better win. . . guess we'll see in a few seconds. what's up with the crazy midget? Argh. Fall Out Boys win for Dance, Dance. That's annoying, Shakira should have won something she got to make an acceptance speech for. Jackass doesn't think they are on tv anymore since the show ran long, but they are . . . LOL! THe Midget is carrying one of the fall out boys around on his shoulders.
11:06 Queen Latifa. Wow. She looks GREAT! She's talking about some environmental stuff. What is Al Gore doing there? They just announced him - and he's getting A TON of applause. Oh god, he just made a "sexy back" joke. They've been doing that all night. He's talking about Global Warming. I think it's good that they talk about these environmental things on a show like the VMAs because it brings awareness to the younger kids who would be watching it. But they could do it in a more fun way. He's hyping think.mtv.com to help out with global warming.
11:17 Unless JLo is undergoing chemo treatments, why the hell is she wearing that scarf on her head? she has gorgeous hair. She's promotoing the new MTv Tres latino station and is announcing the winner of Video of the Year.
11:19 okay. if shakira didn't win, which she should have, then the chili peppers should have. dani california is an awesome video, they rock and the video plays homage to lots of great musicians. but no, panic at the disco wins. guess it's an emo world today.
11:21 Axl Rose? Hm, this seems random. He's presenting THE KILLERS!!!! Love them. Great choice as the last performer to close the show. The song starts off slow and then the whold place turns RED with some swirling lights. They are singing their new song, When You Were Young. I love the lead singer. I like watching him perform. Not sure why, he's kind of robotic but he totallly draws me in.
11:28 in conclusion, i'm trying to decide if it was a big waste of my time to watch, and sit here and blog it all too. jack black was disappointing. a few good performances but nothing really that blew me away like past years. but i feel up on pop culture since i'm sure there'll be highlight all over the place the next few days.
