Did you watch the show last night? I did. Not really interested in who wins what but by the live performances. It seperates the boys from the men, to quote my dad.

They unfreezed Barry Manilow and Lionel Ritchie for the occasion... I have to say about Barry that I suddenly wanted to die but for Lionel, call me kitsh if you want, I liked it.

Most of the stars present offered a solid performance, but my favorites have been "mister cool" John Mayer (God he's good!), Snoop Dog, Jay Z. and The Dixie Chicks. And what about Jamie Fox... that's was a great moment of television.

How come the New RnB queen Beyoncé can be upstage by a young country singer that I don't even know the name? Not a suprise that young lady later won the award for breakthrough counrty artist for this year.

Comedian Jack Black have a band? The other guy looks like my uncle! Anyway, it was untertaining...

Ok, the OUCH section, now. Pussy cat dolls. I wish they choose to do lip-sync instead of live performance. Ouch, my ears. But once I muted the TV, it was nice!!!

The worst technician award goes to... the guy who mixed the Fallout Boys. Man, the guitar was so harsh it was impossible hear the rest of the band! The tech was sleeping on the switch or what?

We also heard one of the wierdest song ever by Gwen Stephani. Honestly, what was that???

Rascal Flatt? Who the hell are they? They keep winning awards and when I finally had the chance to hear them live, they were playing an old hit from Canadian's singer/songwriter Tom Cochrane... o... k...

Overall, it was a Black Eyed Peas (they rules!), Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Mary J. Blide's night. The big winners, ladies and gentlemen...

I know dirty sanchez... never had the guts to try it! HAHAHA

I liked Snow Patrol too. Never heard of them before but I truly appreciate their song. But... I'm still not sure if it was lip-sync and air playing... every elements were there for that, but I never heard of a BAND who prefer this option than live playing... don't know...

Films and stuff that people submit that are original are OK, but U Tube has current issues with the music industry which may affect their long term future

OK, OK, I believe you. When I lived in the middle east the only way to get music was to download it so I dont feel that guilty..kind off!
