The IHeart Radio Awards – Review
This particular awards show is for people just like you and me. We get to vote and we get to see who wins. Because this is a newer awards show you would think they would pull out all the stops. An awards show has big performances, a lot of dancing, comic relief and a lot of fashion. So what were we watching last night? At some points I thought we were watching the rehearsal.
The funny Jamie Foxx pretty much bombing on his comedic performance. So much so, he said it to the audience. He kind of made up for it with his performance but I guess I expected something bigger, something with a “wow” factor. I didn’t get that from any part of the awards show. Most performances were dull, the speeches were odd and all the built up hype just let me down.
However, I am very happy that Taylor Swift won for her song “Blank Space” and she also won for the best dance song “Shake it Off”. Congratulations Taylor and keep those hits coming. As long as we are on the topic, her performance with Madonna was pretty cool. Madonna looked hot as ever, in my opinion, and complimented by Taylor Swift made the duo look fierce. Another highlight of the show was by one of my favorite men, Nate Ruess from the group Fun., performing one of the best songs ever. His spirit, soul and all of his emotions come out in him when he sings. His passion is astounding and beautiful. I thank him for such an inspiring performance.
From Justin Timberlake’s half funny, half awkward acceptance speech for winning the Innovator of the Year Award, an awkward Jamie Foxx and a not so fashionable evening excluding Taylor Swift, Madonna and Justin Timberlake in a rockin’ blue suit made my viewing experience a bit disappointing. Yet I still look forward to next years show!
Hopefully next year there will be more umph to the awards show and blow us away.
