Last night was the Video Music Awards. I really liked some of the performances… Adele for example, was totally amazing and she showed other artists that there is no need for bling, paillettes, dancers and multicoloured lights when you got a voice. Her performance was breathtaking! Beyoncé also did an amazing job as usual but her song choice was just soso for me! Gaga also sang her latest single ‘You and I’ personifying her alter ego Jo (same character as in her video) and she managed to stay in her character all night with no costume change. Can you believe it?
I was a bit disappointed by the Britney Spears tribute. It was a 3 minutes dance session showing clips of her greatest hits on big screen… I thought other pop stars were going to perform her songs…well that’s what VMA was advertising last week… Oh well, I guess they cut the budget for that.
