Will The VMAs’ “Surprise” Finale Be All That Surprising?

Aug 22nd, 2008 // 18 Comments

axlbritney.jpgSeat-filling site 1iota.com is looking for Jonas Brothers fans to stuff the audience ranks for the boys’ Video Music Awards performance, and as if seeing their favorite Jersey-raised brothers isn’t enough of a carrot for these kids, the site hints that people selected to be in the audience will get to see what the site is billing as a “Top-Secret Finale.” (Caps theirs.) But which performer could actually shock the Red Bull-and-IM-frazzled children of today into being, well, surprised? Poll after the jump.

    “Top-Secret Finale.”

    If only it was a performance of this:

    Apparently Ms. Spears is performing at this year’s VMA’s. Word on the street is, some hairstylist from Shear Genius or something leaked the info. Dude was describing to some tv outlet the three looks he’s preparing for Britney and mentioned how one is for her stage performance. Now I ain’t one to gossip, so you ain’t heard this from me. Try googling it.

    Also what about Britney Spears with Eminem rapping on the bridge? You know debuting that exclusive Pieces of Me Remix? That is if that last comment I posted turns out to not come through.

    A Dogbowl/Kramer reunion?

    Gwen Stefani pledging to stop being an attention whore?

    A duet of “Turning Japanese” featuring Peter Noone and Negativland?

    I could do this all day…

    Val Kilmer, call your agent!

    @bbernardini: Gwen Stefani pledging to stop being an attention whore?

    Actually, the “Top-Secret Finale” was supposed to be Gwen giving birth to her 2d child live onstage, with Pharrell mixing her birthing noises together with a frestyle from Soulja Boy into a new track called “Zuma Nesta”, which would be available on iTunes immediately after the show, but Gwen ruined that by giving birth yesterday, leaving VMA producers scrambling for a substitute.

    I dunno, maybe 30 Seconds To Mars featuring Brooke Hogan?

    @Rob Murphy:

    That’s was mad hilarious son!

    The only way that performance could be topped is if Gwen Stefani and Pharrell did all you mapped out so beautifully as Gwen grinded all up on a hologram of Bob Marley singing I shot the sheriff.

    Great job, everyone.

    Top notch, top notch!

    Eminem with Elton John.

    This is silly.
    Everyone in the industry already knows it Tupac. Faith Evans leaked it in the advance of her memoirs.

    The Game. 50 Cent. Dr. Dre. ‘Hate it or love it!’ Reprise 2008. [The jury's still out on whether Olivia will be joining 50 on the hook]

  12. Rob Murphy

    50 Cent, Bow Wow Wow, Christina Aguilera, D4L, Lil’ Kim, Lil’ Wayne, Madonna, Mandy Moore, Rihanna and Snoop Dogg will do a medley of their “candy”-related hits, in the style of American Idol’s group sings. Afterwards, Fergie, wearing Candies shoes and a “dress” made of Tootsie Pop wrappers, will lead a group discussion about whether the “candy = sex” meme in pop music has jumped the shark. The whole event will be secretly funded by the Mars candy company, the owner of Wrigley’s Doublemint gum.

    Double your pleasure, double your fun, indeed!

    If Guns ‘n’ Roses performed, my current inner tween and my past actual tween self would come into contact and create a black hole thus causing me to implode.

    I must go and see just in case…it’d be like Pop Rocks & Coke (whichever kind).

    Michael Jackson. Shhhhh…

    Axl Rose looks so artificial today, is like he’s trying to be Michael Jackson number 2!
    Btw, he has a nice carpet on his head :)

  16. jody

    a daddy yankee/toby keith duet.

  17. ITMS

    Nicole Scherzinger?

  18. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
