Kendrick Lamar! Christina Aguilera & A Great Big World! Jennifer Lopez! Pitbull & Ke$ha! Ariana Grande! TLC! — so as per usual, it to felt more like a madcap variety show than, y’know, the awards show it actually is. Not that anyone’s complaining about that.

  1. Gaga / Kelly as Marilyn Monroe & JFK? Um…????????
    The performance was silly / trite and the choreography was basic at best.
    (Not to mention the whole set-up was pretty tasteless on the anniversary week
    of JFK’s assassination.) Once again, Gaga takes something iconic and
    trivializes it by making it all about her (which seems to be her calling
    card now with all of her artistic “references.”) So sad….she was actually pretty
    interesting when she came out with her first album.
