What do you call it when the audience for your awards show skyrockets by 66% from the previous year? At MTV, they’re probably calling it “bonus time”.
Last night’s raucous Video Music Awards, from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, drew 10.1 million viewers. That’s Duck Dynasty numbers folks. It’s also a 66% jump from last year’s telecast, hosted by Kevin Hart. (The Philly comic popped up a few times last night as well, frequently reminding us that he was not, repeat not hosting the show.)
The telecast had controversy – Molly Cyrus’s filthy appearance – and lots and lots of music – Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Drake, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, 2 Chainz, Bruno Mars…the list goes on and on..
Below you can see the full clip of Justin Timberlake’s appearance: a medley of "Take Back The Night," "SexyBack," "Love You Like I Love You," "My Love,”, as well as his reunion with ‘NSYNC.
Oh and JT also walked off with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
But what am I telling you for? Apparently you were watching.
