    Bruno had a little Bobby Brown with a dash of Michael. I see you Bruno. Continue to deliver great performances and it will definitely help with the album sales.

    • ? November 20, 2016

      Push through Bruno

    • Sebastian November 20, 2016

      more like blatantly copying their styles

  2. GurlWepa1989 November 20, 2016

    He’s an amazing talent. Love my island boy.

  3. Remey November 20, 2016

    Is it just me or did Bruno seemed to lack energy? He did a great job but for some reason I was expecting the energy he delivered at the super bowl. It just felt stiff….I’m not shading (especially since he’s a fav of mine). Nevertheless…Kudos!!!!

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 20, 2016

      I could see that, but my problem was there was no set whatsoever. He was up there looking like a barely signed artist with his 6 backup dancers

  4. #TeamTinashe Stan November 20, 2016

    Look….. Ariana’s my girl but I am not here for this FORCED choreography by her back up dancers

    • joselinefan_xo November 20, 2016

      Ari sounded better than the VMA performance. Nicki girrl u sounded outta breath. Thx for showing remy ma love tho i see u slaying her 40 inch bundles look. Cute boots too!?

  5. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? November 20, 2016

    Zayn Won ??

  6. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? November 20, 2016

    Nicki and Ariana performance was horrible.

    • daclassyman November 20, 2016

      When Nicki opened her legs and proceded to master her bait. I CHOKED

  7. Suicide Blonde November 20, 2016

    I’m curious as to how any Rihanna fan can critique anyone’s performance ? Do they not understand that she’s the worst performer in history.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 20, 2016

      Why do you feel the incessant need to troll under someone else’s name? #LOOSEERR

      • Suicide Blonde November 20, 2016

        First of all, I can’t seem to log in, second of all, you’re a Rihanna fan, so anything that has to do with talent, you should refrain from commenting on.

    • IStan4Rihanna. November 20, 2016

      Who are you to determine what people should or shouldn’t comment on?


      Please go and find yourself a hobby as opposed to spending your free time trolling a blog-site under another user’s alias; it’s always unhappy, pathetic, moronic, imbeciles such as yourself that I find completely comical – what an interesting and successful life you must clearly lead.

      • Suicide Blonde November 20, 2016

        You can say whatever you want, the fact of the matter is, your fav is talentless, and since you stan for that, your opinion on actual talent, is void.

      • IStan4Rihanna. November 20, 2016

        “Void” to whom exactly, yourself?


        Hopefully, all isn’t lost with you and you eventually get the help you fervently need to supress your desperate want for attention.


        Enjoy the rest of your night, Sweetheart. ?.

      • Suicide Blonde November 20, 2016

        You can be upset all you want, it still doesn’t take away the fact that you fav is talentless. Goodnight ??

      • IStan4Rihanna. November 21, 2016

        I take it back. I know Rihanna is not a great performer at all, but she is my idol so I cant seem to stop talking about her. I have her posters, albums, everything you could think of, so I get extra passionate talking about her. I get so mad when Beyonce comes on and steals Rihanna’s thunder, just because she can dance and is pretty. Grrrrr

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 20, 2016


      • Suicide Blonde November 21, 2016

        I will admit I am an angry person by nature, and I enjoy arguing online because people in real life dont seem to notice me. I like Rihanna, but it makes me mad she is so famous and so pretty, so I tend to like to talk bad about her at any chance I get. I should be famous, but I cant seem to lose the extra weight no matter how hard I try.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 20, 2016

      Not in history tho..that’s pushing it. But i don’t rate her as a performer at all.

  8. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? November 20, 2016

    John Legend is a true talent.

    • Fancy BISH November 20, 2016


  9. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 20, 2016

    This entire awards show is just a complete FAIL. I’m really about to go to bed now since the boring white people are coming on now

    • Suicide Blonde November 20, 2016

      ? and i’m the racist one.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 21, 2016

        I just get so angry that white people get everything! JK, I actually just post stuff like that to get out my aggression in a safe spot, behind my computer screen, where no one can see the real me. Isnt that what we all do?

    • Remey November 20, 2016

      It has been so boring. That’s why I was upset with Bruno and the opening. Sheesh…can I get Drake, Rihanna, Mary, Bey, Britney or someone to perform…these performances have been basic….and these hosts make me cringe when jokes don’t go over well.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 20, 2016

        You’re absolutely right. There is NO star power whatsoever. There’s just a bunch of bubbling under white kids looking to hopefully make 100K on black friday

  10. IStan4Rihanna. November 20, 2016

    This awards show is absolutely tragic.


    I am glad that both Rihanna and Beyonce’ have paid it complete dust!



    • Suicide Blonde November 20, 2016

      They won’t be missed.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 20, 2016

      I’m so f*cking p*ssed at Rihanna. She had one job. ONE. All she needed to do was pause her scene in Bates Motel, get on a jet to LA, wear some lil ole cute outfit and drop the video for Love On the Brain…b*** noooo. She has to be sooo ANTI.

      • IStan4Rihanna. November 20, 2016

        Sweetheart, that’s the beauty of Rihanna; I hate her so much at times that I can’t help but love her. ?.


        You’re absolutely right however. Tonight would have been the perfect chance to release the video for “Love On The Brain” (of course, it would have helped with the songs current lacklustre streams) but, at the same time, the songs overall response on radio is phenomenonal. It received a 1M+ update on Pop radio alone today where it is currently in the top 20 and top 50 on overall – the “big radio freeze” as it is called will begin in another two weeks and ends in January, if the song continues to climb from then onward then all is well though she would have to release the video well within the next 5 – 7 weeks.


        All in all, there is not a single active artist in this music industry that is so content with self-sabotage as Rihanna is to herself and yet she’s still so immensely successful and has still become the second biggest female hit maker of all-time. Our ‘Caribbean Queen’ is simply a genius to be honest. ?.

      • IStan4Rihanna. November 21, 2016

        Weird question, but does anyone else enjoy the smell of their own farts? I was just thinking about Rihanna and what I would do if I met her, and farted. I realized I LOVE the smell of my own toots. Anyone else?

  11. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? November 20, 2016

    Love Twenty One Pilots.

    • Fancy BISH November 20, 2016

      Really? Different strokes for different folks *Phaedra voice* lol

      • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? November 20, 2016

        They’re socially awkward, but make great rock music imo.

  12. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? November 20, 2016

    Drake is so fake ???

  13. Chillitsjustpizza November 20, 2016

    Bruno is bae asf.

  14. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? November 20, 2016

    Lady GaGa has a beautiful voice.

    • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? says November 21, 2016

      Weird question for anyone out there, but do you think its fair that a woman at Walmart told me the scooters were for handicapped people and not just people that are fat and lazy (apparently me)? Like who is she, right? If I want to breeze through the aisles on a scooter, who has any right to say anything about it? Waitin on the first to collect them checks.

  15. Remey November 20, 2016

    Gaga is giving me LeAnn Rimes meets Fantasia with these shoes off during her performance….

  16. Rihboy November 20, 2016

    I enjoyed Gaga! Arianna always sound like she out of breath! I mean it’s like she builds up and then falls flat! Lackluster mess. And nicki could have kept that little routine ?. Everything else is blah! These shows aren’t anything without the 4 elites present! I don’t know none of these new people.

    • Kiii November 20, 2016

      That’s because her vocal technique is bad and she has no breath support. She can barely even get through a whole song. And A lot of her notes were just completely flat

  17. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? November 20, 2016

    Overall this award show has been very underwhelming.

  18. daclassyman November 20, 2016

    This awards show is not entertaining at all.

    The D*** Clark Rock N Eve has better acts … LMAO

  19. Kiii November 20, 2016

    All I gotta say is yikes

  20. Junior in Jamaica November 21, 2016

    Gaga sat and sang her heart out.

  21. Mase November 21, 2016

    Gaga slayed

  22. Danzou November 21, 2016

    Y’all can’t tell me 5H ain’t give y’all what y’all came for

    • Kiii November 21, 2016

      You’re right, we expected mediocrity and that’s exactly what they gave us…

  23. Meme November 21, 2016

    I enjoyed every single one of these performances. How can ppl say this was boring. Gaga = amazing, John = amazing and emotional, Bruno = did his damn thing, 21 pilots = was so hype, Ariana and nicki = was cool, Abel = was cool, DJ Khalid and them = was cool.

    Like did we watch the same awards? Every show doesn’t need a Beyoncé performance to be entertaining

  24. Theman November 21, 2016

    Lady Gaga, Bruno, John L, Sting & Greenday were amazing!! Real tale to!

  25. Grapejuice fan November 21, 2016

    It was ok this year,Fifth Harmony did so good ?
