While over all it was your standard award show. what definitely made this special were the tremendous performances, some of which were Madonna and Gorillaz (oh yeah!). Hey what can I say in my eyes, the Gorillaz can do no wrong... Personally, I would love to know how they got Madonna to dance with Murdoch, both in front and behind.. I was curious about how they were gonna pull that off, but hey, they did it.
Also, U2 with Mary J. Blige... now all I have to say about that is DAMN!!!!!!!!! I was cheering along like I was sitting there in the audience watching it live in person.. such people and their ability to lay their heart and soul out there and touch you in that way.. what more can you say.
Kanye West was also rather comical when he won and said he hadn't prepared a speech and in large letters it said Thank You List... Award shows, while interesting and deserved, often tend to be stale, its nice in these that the performances keep that from happening.
