What's Going On...Sept 10...VMA Style

The 2007 MTV Video Music Awards had no host for the first time ever and last night some of the most entertaining things took place. Were you at home watching?

The VMAs aired last night on MTV in Las Vegas at 6 p.m. (Pacific Time). There were several celebrities present including Diddy, Alicia Keys, T.I., Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Jay-Z, super-producer Timberland, and Britney Spears. The list goes on.

The talk of the night and forever more will be Britney Spears' opening performance for her new single "Gimme More," featuring a sample from T.I.'s song, "Bring 'Em Out." Spears appeared to be unsure of herself, tired, and relaxed as if she was not making a come back to the pop scene. She lip-synced the entire song and did mediocre dance routines that made you wonder if she was the same Britney who danced her heart out on the VMA stage once before with a python around her neck. The crowd watched anxiously waiting for more, but Britney gave them less than what they were used to. Just watch the audience's reaction, especially 50 Cent's who seemed to look confused. Diddy did not look pleased at all in the audience.



Even though most would expect a thriller of a performance, from Spears, at least Chris Brown did an excellent job with his performance of his hit "Wall to Wall," including snippets of his new single with T-Pain and a Micheal Jackson themed breakdown dance. Brown danced and sang the entire time. When he was finished, he received handshakes from Nelly and those sitting at Nelly's table that Brown finished his routine on.



The entire night was filled with hotel parties in Palms Casino Resort. Kanye West performed most of the night with a crowded room dancing to his music. One of the highlights of the evening was when MTV showed West and T-Pain performing his new single titled "Good Life." People were outside dancing on the see through balcony with West and T-Pain.



Did anyone notice that while Beyonce received an award for her and Shakira's single "Beautiful Liar," she kissed West and not 50 Cent, who came on the stage together? 50 looked at the camera and raised an eyebrow and Beyonce walked by to receive her award.

Word of Kid Rock and Tommy Lee, Pam Anderson's former husband, fist fighting backstage hit the stage once Jamie Foxx announced it as he was presenting an award with Jennifer Garner. No word on any injuries yet or who won.

Producer Timberland did a great job of MCing and DJing on his beat maker as he brought out Nelly Fertado, Justin Timberlake, and Keri Hilson.

Missed everything? Don't worry MTV said they will air it again, but it will be different because it will not be exactly the same they say. It will be remixed. Stay tuned.
