The 2012 Billboard Awards, Full List Of Winners and Whitney Tribute

LMFAO--Ugh.

The Billboard Awards happened and for three hours nothing really happened. I’ll spare you a rant on the state of music today because whether we like it or not, LMFAO exist and we only have Berry Gordy to blame.

The group along with Adele, who was not there because he had better things to do I’m sure, took home top honors. Trophies also went to Coldplay, Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga. Once again, Taylor Swift put on her best fake shocked face as she received the award for “Woman Of The Year,” an award she knew she was getting. It was presented to her by Zooey Deschanel who didn’t ask the audience if it was raining. Hosted by Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen of Modern Family, not even halfway through the show I wondered why Billboard didn’t just leave well enough alone and let this show stay dead.

There were many performances, some good like Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and Goodie Mob featuring a performer from Cirque Du Soleil‘s Michael Jackson The IMMORTAL World Tour show. Then there were the bad including Swift 2.0 Carly Rae Jepsen, The Wanted and Usher.

These douches.

Bruh, until you can perform to the best of your ability, whatever that is now, I need you to just sit down somewhere and leave it to the kids, like Justin Bieber.

The ever-UN-original Katy Perry

Then Katy Perry ripped off both Pink and the Smashing Pumpkins with her performance of her new single “Wide Awake.” How many effing songs does she have? I also don’t know what Stevie Wonder was dong by having Alicia Keys sing “New York” acapella.

There were a couple of quick tributes to Robin Gibb, Donna Summer and Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, but of course everyone was looking forward to the tribute to Whitney Houston.

Whoopi Goldberg introduced John Legend and Jordin Sparks who paid tribute to the late songstress with her songs “The Greatest Love Of All‘ and “I Will Always Love You.” The latter has been included in every tribute since she died and I was hoping for something else, but Jordin did a pretty good job with it.

Bobbi Kristina

Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina and sister-in-law Pat Houston accepted the “Millennium Award” on her behalf.

Lest we forget to mention, Miley Cyrus wore a white tuxedo.  Minus the pants and shirt. But she did wear what looked to be a boob chain of sorts.

The thing is, Miley actually looks pretty hot…for a 19 year old going on 35, don’t you think?
