MTV VMAs 2010

On Sunday September 12, 2010 MTV aired the Video Music Awards. Chelsea Handler hosted the 26th annual VMAs in Los Angels, California. The evening began when stars flooded the white carpet, some looking their best, and some not so much. Guests included major celebrities like Lady Gaga, Drake, Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Justin Beiber, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Eminem, Trey Songz, Katy Perry, and the casts of The Jersey Shore and Glee. The night was full of awards and Lady Gaga. Fans went gaga for Lady Gaga awarding her eight VMAs, the most of the night. Eminem was awarded two awards for Best Male Video and Best Hip-Hop Video.

The award breakdown goes something like this:
Video of the Year: Lady Gaga- Bad Romance
Best Male Video: Eminem- Not Afraid
Best Female Video: Lady Gaga- Bad Romance
Best New Artist: Justin Beiber
Best Hip-Hop Video: Eminem- Not Afraid
Best Pop Video: Lady Gaga-Bad Romance
Rest Rock Video: 30 Seconds To Mars- Kings and Queens
Best Collaboration: Lady Gaga ft. Beyonce- Telephone
Best Choreography: Lady Gaga- Bad Romance
Best Editing: Lady Gaga- Bad Romance
Best Art Direction: Florence + The Machine- Dog Days Are Over
Best Direction: Lady Gaga- Bad Romance
Best Cinematography: Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys- Empire State of Mind
Best Special Effects: Muse- Uprising
Breakthrough Video: The Black Keys- Tighten Up
Guests were entertained by performances from Eminem and Rihanna, Usher, Justin Beiber, Florance + The Machine, N.E.R.D. and Ciara, Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Linkin Park, B.O.B, Bruno Mars, and Hayley Williams, Drake, Mary J Blige, and Swizz Beatz. Cher made a surprise appearance on stage to give out an award to Lady Gaga in a meat costume. Meat costume? Yes, I said meat. Justin Beiber showed off his drumming skills while Taylor Swift unleashed a new song on her upcoming new album “Speak Now”. GASP, Kanye West and Taylor Swift were in the same room? Luckily, Kanye was able to stay seated during Taylor’s performance, this time.

Although awards were given and performances rocked the room, critics might say that the night lacked drama. It didn’t have a “moment”. I guess there is always hope for next year.

The best part of the night could probably not be put into one moment. Maybe it was the three different, uniquely interesting, outfits that Lady Gaga appeared on stage in.

The best performance of the night was Eminem singing his hit song Not Afraid and then being joined by Rihanna to sing Love the Way You Lie. Chelsea Handler’s host job was not getting rave reviews, some saying that a few of her jokes got old and were offensive.

What was your favorite part of the night? Who do you think gave the best performance? Who was the best dressed of the night? The worst? Do you think someone else deserved to receive an award? Are there any awards that you think should be created? Who should be next year’s host?

With love,
