MTV VMA reactions: Lady Gaga was 'awful' and 'pretty great'
Here's a sampling of comments about the MTV Video Music Awards from our forums. See more.
dust281: That Gaga performance was awful. The dancing was not needed in that performance at all. It doesn't go with the song. She should have just stayed at the piano and sang. I was excited to see something great but that was quite unfortunate.
Space: I thought Gaga was pretty great, actually.
Benito Delicias: Yet another disaster of a show.
Movieguy89: Standing ovation for Adele. That's how you rock the stage. No need for gimmicks.
dust281: Chris Brown has best performance of the night so far ... by a landslide! Wow!!
Movieguy89: I'm loving Bruno singing "Valerie"
Mercy: The show as usual was TERRIBLE!
Guru: For fan voted VMAs, the winners were not shocking like 2006. Everyone seemed expected. Everyone winner was well spaced out. I wouldn't be surprised if MTV had the upper hand.
Comic Book Guy: I think Lady Gaga pretty much ruined the night. I mean the gender bending thing, and just her existence. Yuck ... Hello Goodbye.
