Great show! But, Where is the essence of it?
4 February 2003 | by Insomniac_moviefanSee all my reviews

This year's VMAs show was better than the past year mainly because there were more live performances, and more presenters. This year Mtv executives spent more time on the nominees and it's reflected on the 21 categories with good quality videos.

The intro of the show was hilarious. Jimmy Fallon parodied Eminem's "Without Me", The White Stripes' "Fell In Love With A Girl", Avril Lavigne's "Complicated", and Enrique Iglesias' "Hero". Jimmy Fallon was a great host overall.

Performances from Shakira, The Vines V.S. The Hives, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, and Puff Daddy with some friends were good. But Eminem's "White America" and "Cleaning Out My Closet" was the best. Guns 'n Roses performance could've been better, but the fact that they performed was amazing.

My complaint is that the winners were decided because of high-sells and controversy. The essence (and spinal cord) of the show is to award THE BEST VIDEOS of the year. Seems like MTV lost the main idea of the show since 1997. The nominees in the BEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR category are great, the best picks since 1996. That's it. 6 powerful and emotionally videos were nominated. Though, I think that N'Sync's "Gone" had nothing to do in this category. It wasn't N'Sync's year! Well, a pop video had to be nominated. Eminem won the best video of the year, and that's because he had the best selling cd of the year. "Fell In Love With A Girl" and "Alive" deserved the award because those are truly great videos.

Eminem and The White Stripes were the big winners of the night, getting 3 awards each. P.O.D. and Missy Elliot were the big losers, before the show both had 6 nominations.

Good job MTV, this year's VMAs were the best since 1996, hope next year will be better.
