  1. barilla says

    >> Justin Bieber took home the Artist of the Year award, but the performances folks are talking about on the web are Psy and MC Hammer, Kelly Clarkson, P!nk, and Ke$ha.

    Lord, murder us all.

  2. AJ says

    ^ EYEROLL Snobs! I have to say P!nk’s performance was absolutely STUNNING. TO do a contemporary dance number WHILE singing is insane. SHe pulled it off, too. And it didn’t hurt that her dance partner is incredibly hot.

  3. Sean says

    Pink’s performance was fantastic. It was seriously cool to watch.

    Kelly Clarkson, as usual, blew everyone else away with her amazing voice and her real talent (yes, she actually sang!).

    The rest (like stupid Nicki Minaj) predictably sucked and just lip synced.

  4. Rich says

    P!nk is so impressive on so many levels. She really is one of the most intelligent performers out there.

  5. Sargon Bighorn says

    I need some book learnin here folks. The PINK dance is really energetic and physical, but I don’t understand the “domestic violence” lite theme. Why is he throwing her around? I mean if this were an anti domestic violence thing she should just belt the guy. She’s built tough.

  6. B says

    Sargon Bighorn, its weird how so many people (on youtube and blogs) only notice Pink being thrown around, even though she’s attacking the guy (offensively, not just defense) equally as much.

    I think the dance is supposed to represent struggle, and passion. Its not meant to be taken literally. For me, the pose at 2:50 represents the equilibrium in their relationship, where together they create something stronger than each individual person.
