Yep. We sat through the entire awards show, but that ain’t no big thang. We always do, because it’s like my job or something. That sure doesn’t mean I don’t have biases or favorites, right? I wouldn’t be the opinionated human sack of gossip you’ve grown to barely tolerate love. Right? RIGHT???

Meh. Pitbull is okay, I guess.

So…here are the winners, and I don’t have too many complaints aside from Pitbull trying his hand at a hosting gig and the  Best New Artist…which clearly should have been awarded to our town’s  Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, forpitysake. YOU know it and I know it; so let’s just move along.

Overall, the shows was okay. I really was hoping for some wins for Bruno Mars, which would’ve given us a hot performance, but alas–Timberlake won those awards.  I did notice the  not-too-subtle public shaming of Robin Thicke. Hmmmmm…Not all the surprising.

Even Miley was decent; although her staging was, well–odd?

WTAF? Oh. Right. “She’s just bein’ Maaaahleee, y’all.”

One more thing: How great did Joan Jett and Dave Grohl look? LOVE THEM!

Overall, what did alla ya’ll think? Anyone with me on the Bruno Mars sitch?  Did ABC think they’d get more viewers/higher ratings with Timberlake winning performing? Just as simple questions; don’t LEAP all over me.
