The ratings weren't great unfortunately. All award show ratings have been abysmal lately, they'll eventually discontinue.

No they won't, they'll just find other ways to broadcast them. Streaming services, facebook etc.

The ratings for the BBMAs particularly have never been that high anyway.

I remember the mid 00s like 2005/2006, the ratings dropped to just over 6 million when every other award show was getting 10-25 million viewers. Then in 2007-2010 the awards were not held and ever since it came back in 2011 it’s had between 7-11 million viewers,

I think the only legitimate award show people will tune in for these days are The Grammys. I do think they should move the BBMAs to a streaming platform and they should stream it on YouTube, Facebook.

Wasn't expecting anything super different w/ Ari, as she even said so on sms prior. It did what it was supposed to; it was fine. As for energy, she's mentioned some blood health issues; it shows in some performances, but is reasonable considering. It's like complaining about Gomez not busting a move. :bunny:

Get that exposure, Dua! :D However, maybe other songs could be promoted to show more sides, as this one is performed in a way that can seem lacking in energy, esp after a point.

BTS fans are irritating even to kpop fandoms (lots of foolishness, warring, etc) :manson: :scratch:

JLo is JLo and she did her thing :)

Janet...a medley :shook: Image

Our main event: Christina :icant:
The camera could be better and mess @ "demons", now also having to say, "She was nervous", "It's her idol", etc. Ariana was sick (throat & sinus infection) when performing w/ Christina + it's her idol (not MC) + it was last min; that effects vocal, a foot... + FIL actually fts Demi and they've had time to rehearse officially & unofficially (eg. MV). :fan: Point: fanwars are stupid. Mess aside, go easy on Demi! We all have off days. Ntm considering the case. It's not that serious. She caught some things and strived through. Queen comforting her, though :cry:
Christina...I have feels that I can't explain or contain! She's just so into this song and era! :shook: The crowd. This. Just this. I do feel X may have had more planned, but toned down for Demi. However, that's not really an issue. I have no issues with this performance. :love:

Some are overreacting and would make one think everything was much worse. Thank goodness there's more positivity. There are so mamy good vibes this era, let's keep it going! :love:

Ariana posted the performance of her YouTube, so Xtina's team might also do it.

I hope they don’t tbh. But whatevs. Where is X and Max watching the performance? Jordy’s house? Obviously way too small to be X’s mansion.

GREATNESS, HER FULL POTENTIAL. INSPIRATION

Xtina's music with Jordan vs Xtina's music with Ratt - Name one song she made about Ratt?

Since Ratt we got two first singles about random Sex. Lotus 's quality was what it was. She didn't perform YB, her career with Ratt vs her career with Jordan.

Even Liberation is about her being unhappy and wanting to break free.

You reached and missed.

So what does that have to do with her vocal arrangements?You made it sound like your post was ENTIRELY about the vocal arrangements and could not be interpreted any other way.Did Jordan arrange that Beautiful performance?
No.
You made a post that had absolutely nothing to do with her weight about her weight.
I explained Ratt in detail. I compared her music/career, with and without him.
That's called receipts. But since you cant name a song she wrote about Ratt- here you are with the b.s - "Did Jordan arrange the beautiful performance?" - What???

The way you are reaching, I'm surprised you simply haven't Fell on the floor.

Dont forget Liberation, Xtina's album about being liberated is out June 15th

Random BMAs hot take: the KPop thing is cringey and needs to die.
It's not all the same... Also, there needs to be more diversity. The US just started allowing Asian singers a spot :ziggy: even Asian Americans don't get such, regardless of potential.

True, they're usually better performers, trained to perfection. But music wise? Kpop is twice as shitty as western pop
In all music, it depends who you're listening to... it's not all the same or one genre, so that's not really true for either. Newer acts do lack a bit, esp as fans are making it more about groups, looks, biases, & merch (ntm a lot of the newbies coming off as reductive & lacking copies of prior acts), but there are just also very solid acts, tied or even surpassing of some US acts. +Mainstream anywhere isn't a good place to look for anything. Ntm the US & Kpop (it goes both ways) often share writers and producers, so it would mostly be the same "shit", except act bias.

+I've never even listened to the group that performed (idk their names either).

Of course i have to watch it with VPN on.

I love the first 3 minutes of the performance (until the last chorus comes). It's too messy to listen to.

Other than Xtina's performance, Normani slayed the stage imo!
