    Rihanna was OK. Why she performed “Cockiness” I’ll never know. As usual tho “We Found Love” was LIFE

    P!nk’s backgrounds were way too high, she doesn’t need all that s***

    • kiss my a** September 6, 2012

      When i Heard Cockiness i was like that f*** why she choose this s***
      and we found love she was missing some notes she sounded like a goat yet people was getting all hyped I cant and couldn’t and i refused it was straight fuckey

    • ARFA September 6, 2012

      I LIKED BOTH P!NK AND RIHANNA !!

  2. Crow LeNz September 6, 2012

    Rihanna was horrible she sounded all pitchy and missin some notes
    Pink did good i liked her performance

    • Truth September 7, 2012

      Pink is ALWAYS on point

  3. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 6, 2012

    Why Rihanna, why?? This was your chance to steal the show!!! Why did you blow it?

    • FAF September 6, 2012

      DEAD

  4. JER September 6, 2012

    LMFAO they almost had to escort Rihta Ora off the stage

    “Ma’am, ma’am the audience isn’t allowed to be up here”

    ‘OH no I’m a presenter’

    “MA’AM PLEASE HAVE A SEAT”

    • Benron (King Of The Navy) September 6, 2012

      She looked so odd. I could feel the “who is she” looks everyone was giving from all across America.

      • JER September 6, 2012

        lol i honestly felt bad for her. My sister said “wow she put that wig on fast” thinking it was Rihanna post-performance. I had to let her in lol

      • GURL September 6, 2012

        @JER DEAD, say it ain’t so

      • Benron (King Of The Navy) September 6, 2012

        Lol, not surprising, but she must of been from far away, Rih is far prettier!

      • kelly September 6, 2012

        Did u see Rita Ora try to fight Demi lovato for the attention? Everyone was look at her like, who is this ugly ass? LOL at her thirsty desperation – she changed to present an award. Who does that? The dress look like a cheap Lady gaga knock off, all those feathers and s***.

        In fact, Rita look as basic and ugly as Demi lovato, they looked like sisters. Rih killed it. As usual.

    • kelly September 6, 2012

      I know, they had to drag Rita off the stage. Let see if RIP enters the charts of the back of this. It is shocking this flop gets to present an award at the MTV.

      • Rihanna Navy September 6, 2012

        kill yo self

      • kelly September 6, 2012

        Rihanna,

        You kill yourself. I am enjoying yourself. Your life should end as you have proven to be miserable. The good thing about you killing yourself, is that you do to read my comments. So get to it.

    • kelly September 6, 2012

      In think Rita changed to the white, because she knows Rih wears white alot on and she got feedback that she was the tackiest and sleaziest on the night. All girls – even Rih went classy and she looked dumb with her boobs out. That is why she changed. Either way, she was the worst dressed on the night

  5. NAYAH82 September 6, 2012

    Love Rih’s performance…S*** as b****!! Did anyone checked on Drakesha to see if she was ok?

    • NAYAH82 September 6, 2012

      “ass”

      • NAYAH82 September 6, 2012

        “check” can’t even spell, from dancing and typing at the same time. lol

    • shaun Riley September 6, 2012

      YOu aresoooo f***** funny DRakesha Ahahaaa!!!

  6. Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

    Oh my ears, and oh my eyes. Rihanna b**** i pretty sure there are several seats available

  7. FRESH September 6, 2012

    RIHANNA SALYYYYYYYED

    BEST !!!!!!
    THE SYNTHS THE MOVE STAGE PRESENCE CONTACT WITH AUDIENCE ENTRANCE THEATRICS CLOSING

    IT WAS FLAWLESSS

  8. Benron (King Of The Navy) September 6, 2012

    Rihanna I love you but you need to swim back to the U.k to get the weed you smoked to make you sound so good with coldplay, and drink some water on the way!

    GREAT DANCING BY THE WAY! I loved the choreo, (except her runnin in the crowd!)

    • boycott this blog September 6, 2012

      why the f*** you nasty people hate this girl so much

    • king bey September 6, 2012

      I think riri shuld focus on dancing more like britney n janet voice wise they werent great but performing was really good

      • shaun Riley September 6, 2012

        Agree!

  9. truth.com September 6, 2012

    Go PINK!!!! Rih never was an singer, but it was just OK!!!

  10. Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

    Oh the queen of all queens is on Miss Frank Ocean. With that raggedy ass band on his head.

    • toohotfortv September 6, 2012

      take a note from your screen name _____________. thank you

      • ANTHONY September 6, 2012

        Lmao!

      • Truth September 7, 2012

        OMGOMGOMFUCKNGAAAAWD U SLAY THE F*** OUTTA DAT GIRL LMMFAOLOLOL!!!! #READ

      • Truth September 7, 2012

        That read was EPIC chile

    • kiss my a** September 6, 2012

      Lmao Stop it LOL!!!

  11. JER September 6, 2012

    WTF is this Frank Ocean. Honey boo boo you are not Prince or Robin Thicke. What a typical R&B snooze. Your introduction fo the mainstream should have been hott, not boring commercial break.

    • lol September 7, 2012

      Frank killed it

  12. Benron (King Of The Navy) September 6, 2012

    Im being harsh, but she will kill a DVD for someone else but not realease her own. She will come on stage sounding like she needs a glass of water fast! She needs to get her priorites straight! I was expected an Ama performance but this was… weird. It had good dancing but I can’t excuse her singing and sonding hoarse, constricted and in pain.

    Also! What exactly does her vocal coach do? Because she odes have one and she sounds the same every day, some days better or worse. Does he just smile and nod all day, sigh, yes men can suck my d***.

    • NAYAH82 September 6, 2012

      He vocal coach needs to be fire! I love Rih…even though her voice wasn’t so great, but at least the dancing and stage was pretty good.

      • Benron (King Of The Navy) September 6, 2012

        I know! He has her going out there sounding like this day after day and then makes it up by lettign her sound good every tenthy time! Her choreographer however…

        That called being in check!

    • WaitUrTurn88 September 6, 2012

      THE CROWD LOVED IT!! …I DIDNT THINK IT WAS BAD AT ALL…SHE WAS OUT OF BREATH AND PPL IN THE CROWD WAS GRABBING HER AND SHE STILL HELD HER OWN….BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT FOR ME SO FAR AND NOT JUST SAYING THAT CAUSE I AM PART OF THE NAVY…..BUT HEY WE ALL GOT OUR OPINIONS

      • NAYAH82 September 6, 2012

        I was hype about her performance. She looked so pretty! 🙂

  13. WaitUrTurn88 September 6, 2012

    OMG U SEE RIHANNA DANCING , SHE WAS GETTING DOWN WITH HER BAD SELF!!……THEN SHE JUST WALKED IN THE AUDIENCE AND SANG HER HURT OUT…BEAUTIFUL!!!

    • Benron (King Of The Navy) September 6, 2012

      She was dancing her heart out with ASAP! LOVE IT!

    • virtuoso intellect September 7, 2012

      u r so stupid. u call that stiff mess dancing?

      btw typing the caps wont make the performance seem less boring that it is

  14. Suicide Blonde September 6, 2012

    Rihanna’s was good, i liked her attitude on stage but why she performs We Found Love and not Where Have You Been, i love to see Rihanna voguing her v*****.

    C’mon Vogue…..

    http://i.imgur.com/JdMym.gif

      • danny b September 7, 2012

        Where’s Taylor’s performance??????? She actually made me buy her single after the show with her showing of Never Getting Back Together.. 🙂

      • danny b September 7, 2012

        Because We Found Love was nominated throughout the night. The same reason Beyonce performed Single Ladies in 09 when at the time it was almost a year old. Artists tend to perform the song that is nominated, doesnt take a rocket science to think that… sorry bout it.

    • prettigurlrockD September 7, 2012

      She performed those songs way too much. I’m glad she switched to something more hiphop.

  15. boycott this blog September 6, 2012

    you people on here live to hate the more you hate rihanna she makes more money

    • whyohwhy September 6, 2012

      No she is not! Rihanna’s day is over no body on her but you and it’s not hate it’s fact. Rihannat was up there looking cute nothing more and she did it for Chris Brown. The worst performance so far of the nigth was hers and wait till tomorrow when the reviews comes out and they ask was she not suppose to sing along with that? Holding a mike and moving is not talent!!! But y’all dont know nothing about that kind of stuff… Terrible!!!

    • RichnBlack11(BEYONCE KEEP EM MAD) September 6, 2012

      chile we stating FACTS, no hate

  16. RichnBlack11(BEYONCE KEEP EM MAD) September 6, 2012

    A damn MESS

  17. Ayo September 6, 2012

    WTH is all I have to say about Rihanna’s performance

  18. Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

    Drake boo boo umm I’m need you to give Nicki back her shirt. WtF the whole young money crew up on the stage for?

  19. whyohwhy September 6, 2012

    Rihanna was terrible! She moved and could not sing along with it, stop giving her credit for doing nothing!!! If that’s all you want from your artist you so call stan for than you need help! Pink should have open the show cause that’s what it should have sounded been like…

    • Gilberto September 6, 2012

      Do you really think rihtards know the meaning of “good vocals”, “stage presence”, “good choreography”. Hell no! They see us, the BeyHive, using them and they repeat it like f****** monkeys. They don’t know nothing about music, talent and history. That’s why they’re known as rihtards! R****** could p*** on herself on the stage and they’d call it epic. LOL.

      • kiss my a** September 6, 2012

        Yessssssss you gave facts True they really do have low standards they are not in any position to criticize others specially when it come to talent i lol at them everyday all day

      • Benron (King Of The Navy) September 6, 2012

        Nobody likes they Beyhive. Nobody imitates the beyhive. Nobody befreidn the Beyhive. We mock you on twitter, laugh at the face that ur alll flamboyant queens and now basic descriptions of performances are us imitating you HAHHA were not ur fve were original!

  20. FAF September 6, 2012

    ONE DIRECTION>>>>> RIHANNA PERFORMANCE
    yassss PINK!! SHOW THEM HOW TO GIVE AN ENERGETIC PERFORMANCE W/O SOUNDING LIKE S***!!! 🙂

  21. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare September 6, 2012

    I liked Rihanna’s “Cockiness” performance! * looks around–just me? *

    However, WFL…..no.

  22. Rita Ora looks like the joker September 6, 2012

    Darn! I cannot see the videos.

  23. FAF September 6, 2012

    DEADDDDD!~!!! YASS NICKI SLAY RIHOENA AND KATY PERRY & BEYAWNCE!!! MTV AWARD WIN!!!!

    • Truth September 7, 2012

      Go suck d*** b****

  24. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 6, 2012

    P!nk did a great job! She had a lot of energy, she definitely raised the bar. She had the crowd going too! Despite the great performance, I’m STILL not here for the song though. 😀 😀 Anyway, congrats to her. She did great 😎

  25. WaitUrTurn88 September 6, 2012

    THEY SNUB RIHANNA OUT OF TWO AWARDS….IF SHE DONT WIN VIDEO OF THE YEAR I AM GONNA FREAK…… F#CK MTV, THIS IS BULLSHI#!!

    • Gilberto September 6, 2012

      I don’t blame MTV. Who is deciding the winners are the “people” (aka stans).

      • JER September 6, 2012

        yeah I’m sorry but Rihanna served the best video of her career and one of the best pop videos in years. “Starships” is some Murder Inc 2002

  26. JER September 6, 2012

    I’m sorry but having One Direction perform followed immediately by The Wanted presenting… is that a read? I can’t tell. The fact that they weren’t asked to perform while One Direction was is shade IMO.

  27. Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

    2 chainzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz true

  28. Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

    Bad production though TRuuuuuuuuuuu (2 chainz)

  29. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 6, 2012

    Bandwagoners can dislike my comments as much as they want to, but the truth is that Frank Ocean’s vocals were forced and pitchy and that his stage presence was lacking. Sorry…

    • Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

      TRUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

      • lol September 7, 2012

        People have bad taste…he hit his notes ,voice sounded strong didn’t waver,squeal,stutter,or crack

        he had the most talked about performance of the night slaying your favs like i said he would

    • virtuoso intellect September 7, 2012

      u been so condescending towards Frank, i dont trust ur comment

  30. Suicide Blonde September 6, 2012

    OMG!..those kids One Gaytion are terrible, if i have at least one dislike i’m going to see what I was afraid of that on this site there are basic b****** who loves these basic artirts.

    • JER September 6, 2012

      those skinny white boys were cute as hell tho. Had me robbin the grave goot lawt they better not ever put that mess on TV again

      • Suicide Blonde September 6, 2012

        Oh God!..you are one of those b******.

      • JER September 6, 2012

        eat it up

  31. Stav September 6, 2012

    As usual, Rihanna was terrible and proved that the only reason she is on stage is because she gives good head backstage.

  32. KingBey September 6, 2012

    There Was Nothing Bad About It, It Just Bored Me A Little.
    She Has Definatly Improved Since ’05 Tho.
    P.S. I Liked Cockiness Way Better Than We Found Love Performance.

  33. RichnBlack11(BEYONCE KEEP EM MAD) September 6, 2012

    this whole show is a damn mess……WHERE IS BEYONCE WHEN YOU NEED HER.

    • JER September 6, 2012

      She’s at home having all the seats b****

      • RichnBlack11(BEYONCE KEEP EM MAD) September 6, 2012

        Aww don’t get mad cus r**** sucks

      • JER September 6, 2012

        #webadumad

  34. Suicide Blonde September 6, 2012

    OMG!…this guy Frank is not material for me, i thought he was a phenomenon since you all were crazy about him, he’s a vocalist, he’s very talented, what the f***, he fails to impress me, sorry and i don’t like a man singing like a woman.

    • Stav September 6, 2012

      Suicide Blonde, no one care what you like. You don’t even belong here. You’re like that pesky dork that is always bothering the cool kids. No one likes you.

    • kiss my a** September 6, 2012

      He be singing about sucking d***

      • toohotfortv September 6, 2012

        but you steady asking someone to kiss your ass… what’s the difference?

    • lol September 7, 2012

      Frank has more bass in his voice than most male singers ,he sings mostly in falsetto this one song–f*** it b**** stick to watching p***

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) September 7, 2012

      “sings like a woman” ??? Were u talking about Prince???

  35. RichnBlack11(BEYONCE KEEP EM MAD) September 6, 2012

    • Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

  36. RDK September 6, 2012

    I see you you Nicki,and congratz on winning best female video award,you just made history for a female rapper to win in that category.

    • FAF September 6, 2012

      yessss B****

    • Ayo September 7, 2012

      Sorry a real rapper acheived this already in 1999, a Miss Lauryn Hill. Oops

      • hood_star_06 September 7, 2012

        speak on it ayo!

  37. XoMoDe September 6, 2012

    Frank has no business even being there. Save him for LOGO.

    • toohotfortv September 6, 2012

      You are super pressed, huh? now tell me, how are you familiar with the LOGO station?

    • FAF September 6, 2012

      F*** WHY YOU HATING??? WOULD U LIKE IT IF IT WAS TECHNO??

      • JER September 6, 2012

        I know I would like it if it was good

  38. chillout September 6, 2012

    Rihanna dance performance on stage she’s not a dancer but she pulled it off good job. Pink be jammin gotta give it to her the ladies were really good.

  39. ANTHONY September 6, 2012

    I want to know how the DUde feel about Frank Ocean song cause i know it about him…I know he knows the song is about him. Frank Ocean said homie broke up with him and Frank was thinking about forever. When i hear this song it make me think of my ex Peanutt.

  40. kelly September 6, 2012

    If Rihanna was not there, this awards would tank. Who do they have? Rita Ora? Demi lovato? One direction? The wanted? Who are these m************? Do any of them sell records IN AMERICA?

    Anyway…. Rih killed it. She dance s*** like Janet J and Britney. Asap rocky killed and WFL killed. Most star worth performance of the night. If Rih was not there, who would of watched it?

    • Biting Truth September 6, 2012

      LOL x10

      You delusional twit, you.

    • kimberly September 7, 2012

      vma’s ratings drop by 50%. It has been sky high for past years when she was not there.. Remember? she has not been the highlight of the VMA’s for years and they were doing fantastic.

  41. JER September 6, 2012

    OMG ALICIA KEYS GRRRRRRRRRRRLLL

    NO NO NOOO!!!!!!!!!

    The day Rihanna served better vocals.

    LOWER THAT DAMN KEY!!!!

    I am dying.

    That was nails on a chalkboard while someone drowns a damn cat!!!!!!!!

    I AM EMBARRASSED for you Alicia because that was NOT fire

    • THE GAME September 6, 2012

      Jealous hater!

      • JER September 6, 2012

        B**** that performance was a flop and a damn shame. I’ve never heard Alicia motherfucking Keys sound like she’s chewing on gravel and that was not hot at all. Don’t even try. If you thought her vocals slayed then you need to have all the seats

      • Honestly Speaking September 6, 2012

        Co-sign! Just because she’s “Alicia Keys” doesn’t mean that people are going to support mediocre music with an even worse live arrangement of the song. She needs to try again.

    • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare September 6, 2012

      LOWER THAT DAMN KEY!!!!
      ___________

      lol, yes!!!!

    • kimberly September 7, 2012

      jer and you are a rihanna fan???making that comment???? I can’t and I will not!!

  42. Ain’t Playing Witchu September 6, 2012

    Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj, and Gabby Douglass just slayed everyone’s whole entire life.

    Damn…3 successful black women. That was FIRE.

  43. Boss September 6, 2012

    Damn. Alicia’s Vocals< Nicki's Verse tho

  44. FAF September 6, 2012

    DO YOU SEE ALICIA & NICKI GIVING A PERFORMANCE OF SOUL STIRRING MUSIC, F***??? GABBY DOUGLASS GOLD MEDALIST!!!! WHO CAN TOP THAT???? NOT VAPID LYRICS AND GYRATING FULL OF EXPLETIVES AND ASKING HOW YOUR P**** TASTE!!!! REAL MUSIC

    >>>>

  45. Honestly Speaking September 6, 2012

    Alica has officially lost her voice. She sounded tired and strained. I cannot believe someone told her that that performance was hot and actually let her go out there and embarrass herself like that. Her new single is more like “Girl Going Down” than “Girl On Fire”. Next.

    • Honestly Speaking September 6, 2012

      Alicia

      • Biting Truth September 6, 2012

        Shut the f*** up, you stupid b****. No one who is an admitted fan of a talentless tart like Rihanna has room to critique another singer — especially one with talent; which, again, is something that your favorite lacks.

      • Honestly Speaking September 6, 2012

        I’m tired of you people spamming my comments every time I post. Rihanna is not a reflection of my overall musical taste and I’m a fan of her music because it’s actually quality Pop music. Get some class and a life. That performance was not good and you will deal with it, b****.

      • JER September 6, 2012

        YOU BETTER GO IN because that performance was by far the worst of the night. And that says a lot

  46. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 6, 2012

    Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz were a waste of space. I still don’t know why they were there to begin with 😕

  47. Ain’t Playing Witchu September 6, 2012

    Thank goodness Rihanna won something, that would have been too wrong for MTV to keep using girl like that.

  48. RichnBlack11(BEYONCE KEEP EM MAD) September 6, 2012

    this show sucks just when y’all thought it was safe

    goes to show they needed BEYONCE

    I don’t give a phuck who thumbs down its the truth

    #phuckyoFAV AND YOU

  49. WaitUrTurn88 September 6, 2012

  51. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare September 6, 2012

    I LOVED Frank’s performance–period.

  52. FAF September 6, 2012

    YESSSS JOB WELL DONE MTV NOT LETTING THAT H** GET TOO MANY AWARDS 🙂

  53. WaitUrTurn88 September 6, 2012

    2 VIDEOS OF THE YEAR MOONMANS ….UMBRELLA AND WE FOUND LOVE!!!!!!

  54. JAKE September 6, 2012

    SO SHE WON “VIDEO OF THE YEAR”??????? EH.

    WELL, ALL OF MY FAVES HAVE WON – INCLUDING KING BEY – SO IT’S ALL GOOD.

    CONGRATS RIRI!!!!!!!

    I COULD ONLY WISH THAT YOU WERE “WINNING” IN YOUR PERFORMANCE BECAUSE IT WAS ABSOLUTE S***!!!!!!!

  55. sherrel September 6, 2012

    VMA’S was wack!!! Really come on people!!! They got to do better!!! Thats was short no excitement at all!! Rihanna pretty girl but wack singer,,, the worst singer!! Stick to dressing like a model. Talor Swift performance ws better than that.

  56. Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

    WTF was that????????????? That s*** went off as fast as it came on WTF!!!!!!!!

    • Honey CHILD please September 6, 2012

      S*** WAS WACK!!!!!

  57. Chachanana12 September 6, 2012

    Omg @benron u used to go hard 4 Rihanna n b well delusional but now giving pink beyonce n Chris credit wow. N shading Rihanna. Yasss l Iove it ! Rihanna performance. Oh it just came back on……..no. The dancing ain’t bad I’m mad her background dancers putting way more hips n stuff in it. Her dancing with ASAP was probably her best. But my favorite was probably Alicia with nicki n gabby them 2 made it.

  58. CzarM September 6, 2012

    I’m glad I didn’t bother to watch. Just about everyone there is wack.

  59. Troy September 6, 2012

    I think people are way to hard on Rihanna and just wanna hate I thought it was a really good peformance she does not have the best live Vocal but she killed the choegraphy and put on a good show and peformance well done to her

    • Vandrea September 6, 2012

      Wow. Takes so little to impress some people. Her dancing was not at all good. Her performance, overall, was her typical brand of lackluster.

  60. sherrel September 6, 2012

    Love Keven Heart!! Jokes was funny!!

  61. aishaaguilerakeys September 6, 2012

    I only watched the AK performance, and I cried. So proud of my girl !

    Riih was stiff and moving a lil too slow for me. I was ready for her to pick up the pace but she never did. I liked the cockiness performance but we found love was just HORRIBLE! Frank ocean sounded a hot mess. One direction was singing too low and they were singing a knock off version of one of the nsync songs. IMO. pink’s voice was horrible and she can actually sing, the only person who excited me was 2chainz performance. And Chris brown was lookin at pink like “B**** you stole my move” when she flew across the stage. This vma’s was just a big ass NO! And I also couldn’t listen to Kevin harts jokes because he was REACHING like hell. But when he came out with the midgets that was hilarious.

      Oh, almost forgot, Rita looked good.

    • mobwife September 7, 2012

      LOL not a “big ass NO”….LOL 🙂

      pAnk and her douchb= bag husband claimed CB stole her performance on some old awrd show so I guess she was trying to repay him. pAnk is a horrible performer so I can only imagine what her performance was like! ewww in advance.

  63. Beyonce’s Weave (& Her “HIVE” of Head-Lice) September 6, 2012

    Rihanna = Best performance of the night. She slayed.

    I actually preferred Rihanna’s vocals tonight over her body movements. Even though Rihanna tried playing it smart by doing a lot more simple gesturing, her moves were so … #Awkward! That island girl is soooo stiff. It’s not s*** at all! Alicia was ok! I don’t know why everyone wanted to beat up on her, but she was reaching for those notes though … I’m not sure if she got a hold of all of them. Still, I’ve seem alot worse this week though! Overall, the night was just very blah…

      I don’t know what to think about that comment…lmao. If you preferred her vocals and her vocals were nonexistent then her dancing was sure crap. best shade ever!

  65. Troy September 6, 2012

    Alicia Keys peformance was the best imo I loved she sounded amazing and Nicki’s rapped slayed as well

  68. TJ September 6, 2012

  69. JAMILAA September 6, 2012

    • lolo September 7, 2012

      No that is not true Lauryn Hill won in 1999, people need to do research before posting

  70. Suicide Blonde September 6, 2012

    Green Day_____the best performance of the night.

  71. That B*tch (would you like a rihfund with that)? September 6, 2012

    Taylor Swift’s skinny ass commanded the stage better than Rihject.
    Pink and Frank killed it imo.

  72. Monstarebel September 6, 2012

    Rihanna was ok the vocals were iffy but the dancing was on f****** point!! yaaas BITCHSLAY!

    AND MY BOO NICKI LOOKED CUTE! ALICIA I COULDA PASSED ON THAT S***

  73. @cbDani September 6, 2012

    lil wayne was trash!!!!

  74. prettigurlrockD September 6, 2012

    Rihanna wasn’t that bad until the note at the end of WFL…wtf. Well, not surprising. Alicia sounded strained and like something wrong with her throat. Not a good performance on her behalf either. I’m glad I didn’t waste time watching this award show and was watching the convention. #Obama’12

  75. Anne September 7, 2012

    Finally watched some of the performances. I thought Frank Ocean’s performance was pretty good, Rihanna danced ok but her vocals were horrible and scarce, she was not out of breath she just couldn’t hit any notes. Alicia managed to sound okay.

  76. scars September 7, 2012

    alicia & 1D slays the night

  77. the real xoxo September 7, 2012

    this isnt an awards show,
    its a PR circus.

  78. kimberly September 7, 2012

    I will continue to be shocked by rihanna fans commenting about other artist perfromances. Rihanna no words. This girl proves everyday how she is just the makeup, the fashionable clothes and assisting producers. Producers and songwriters but she can never deliver what they give her. Tran wreck !!!!and to use rihanna and slay in the same sentence is a shame.
    Alicia keys was great. I enjoyed her performance, especially gabby sher made me smile even harder. One direction has one tone and one alone. don’t care about them.
    Overall the VMA’s was the worst award show so far. damn shame.

    sidenote. rihanna begged for votes so much for the VMA’s and she only got ONE. where the navy at. She should be ashamed. She never wins big. 3 VMA’s off 6 f****** albums. BIGGEST SHAME

    • Attention seeking h** September 7, 2012

      thank you!!!!!!!! exactly shes nothing but a cute face that’s all

  79. Anita September 7, 2012

    Alicia gave substance to an otherwise senseless show. She is so much better and totally on another level of performing and entertaining. I know some people can’t appreciate that because they’re more into other aspects of being entertained. I am so glad Alicia was there to actually bring it back to the music and not the flaunting of bodies and suggestive lyrics as so many of those artists choose to do.

  80. Attention seeking h** September 7, 2012

    I’m so here for all Rihanna shade! Love this site!

  81. Todd September 7, 2012

    Good job, Alicia!

  82. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! September 7, 2012

    They saved the best to last with having Taylor swift closing the show. She was easily the best of the night!?

    Queen Taylors- we’re never getting back together is amazing!!!

  83. terrible show….stop the lies September 7, 2012

    Side eyes and snickers at the navy.
    The only thing she slayed in was fashion.
    That is it. Standard fare horrible Rihanna performance. The navy and the delusions.
    If she was such a big star why were ratings cut by almost half this time around?
    No performance was good last night im glad I watched the DNC and the awards later.
    It was tacky almost like a childish ebt award.
    Stop with the lies pink and Alicia were terrible too and they are worlds more talented than than the rest…was just a terrible show

    • prettigurlrockD September 7, 2012

      Thank you. Alicia was not good. It was just gabby and nicki that made the performance distracting from good vocals. That’s the T.

    • mobwife September 7, 2012

      LOL I’m only happy that Breezy won two awards for TUTM. I have yet to acutally see the show and MTV has pulled every video performance off-line!

  84. Nazeem September 7, 2012

    For me, Alicia performed well but that was not her best performance.Nicki Minaj saved her and her song.Rihanna,for me quite a great act to open the show.FYI,i’m a BeyHive.She opened the night in her own style.Although her performance was not as good,but she slayed the night as the opening act.This year VMA was not as good as last year,with performances like Adele,Lady Gaga and Queen Bey especially.And i think Nicki was not a good choice to win the award.

  85. mobwife September 7, 2012

    Damn so MTV pulled all the live perfromances? I’m really beginning to hate MTV! LOL

    • danny b September 7, 2012

      theyre on MTV.com thats why… only a few keys away >_>

  86. StarBey September 8, 2012

    Those performances were all a damn MESS!! Beyonce, gaga ,Britney etc was missing but congrats to the winners and OF COURSE Congrats to Beyonce for winning her 12 VMA award 🙂

  87. Tbozfan10 September 8, 2012

    I like Rihanna but come on, her dancing was so off i kept thinking of Britney Spears’ opening number from the ’07 VMA’s. It wasn’t as bad but still it kept reaminding me of that.

  88. xandyshopp November 18, 2012

    why were all the video deleted i was looking forward to it. xandyshopp1 google me

Alicia Keys has skewed fairly conservative in the style stakes. However, the piano-playing performer is switching things up in an edgy way. Taking to social media, the 15-time Grammy winner unveiled electric orange braids. More snap await below…

It’s been a while since Nicki Minaj treated fans to a music video befitting of her Queen of Rap title. Fortunately, it now appears that the Hip-Hop titan is taking her visual game to the next level by creating what is set to be one of the year’s hottest moments with help… Read More
