Worst public performance ever ... and the nominations besides Miley and Britney are ...
Was Miley Cyrus's performance at the VMAs one of the worst ever at such an event? Surely it's got to be on a par with that horrible Britney Spears performance she walked through she was going through her nutcase phase. Any others?
Paula Abdul, Vibeology.
^^They actually cut it after the live broadcast. It never played on the West coast.
Wow! So glad to hear someone else was disgusted with that Miley kid and her stupid antics. And they cut it for the west coast? I can't wait to read about that tomorrow if it is true.
A vote here for Miley.
I didn't actually see the performance, but she just irritates me.
R4, It should have read "FAT-face Kelly Osborne."
Legally, I can't use that adjective in my name; it's been trademarked by Tiffani Thiessen.
miley = trying.too.hard
Who exactly are her fans now? No teen/20something will admit it...
My 17 year old nephew blew the VMAs off a lame. It's embarrassing shit that makes American Idol look like the Royal Concertgebouw.
I can't believe the media has gone ape-shit over her "tweaking" as if that's even a mainstream word.
R4 Osborne and Cyrus are bffs lol no way will Kelly diss her. Just watch-tonight on E! is a special episode of Fashion Police dedicated to the VMAs. Just you watch-when Joan goes in on Miley (and she will), Kelly will either defend her or just sit silently.
While Miley's performance is up there with the worst ever, my vote goes to Vadge and Anthony Kiedis with their "The Lady Is A Tramp" mess on Arsenio Hall's show back in the early 90s. It was at the height of Vadge's arrogance and she and Kiedis totally disrespected both the song and the audience/viewers with this joke:
I would nominate Mariah Carey at the 4th of July. The hayseed act with her smiling and winking at the camera was just too much.
Madonna is such a huge pile of garbage.

That's Tiffani - I at least have some talent - Thiessen
Ashlee Simpson's SNL performance. I was actually embarrassed for her.
Miley is embarrassing .
Vadge wins this one. That performance proved she can't sing and doesn't even care about music. She was just on a high from taking Kiedis' dick. I wonder if his seed was 1 of her abortions.

Were you referring to Paula's Vibeology? Because that travesty most certainly did air on the West Coast.
I think Leslie Uggams' performance of "Hucka Da Bejeepers [Ibiza Mix]" at the 1965 VMAs takes the cake.
I didn't see this but everyone was chattering about Miley's performances this morning and it was described as desperate, embarrassing and that she clearly needs help stat. Also, anger towards her Dad was implied. Was she drugged up or what? I saw a few pics and her tongue was constantly out.

Miley was on a Save The Music show I think, it was last year, and was the worst performer that night too. As a person, I have a positive impression of her, but she keeps bombing as a singer and might want to give it up. Especially if she can act, and can use that as the backup.
Taylor Swift's performance of Silent Night was atrocious
Miley's publicist/agent is brilliant. The VMA's were on and no one knows who won anything...all talk is Miley. She's guaranteed concert sell-outs and huge sales on her recordings. Big ups for her people.
R1 and R2, how could you?
The horror.... THE HORROR
I really don't see what the huge fuss over her performance was about. It was trashy and maybe she crossed the line when she twerked on Robin Thicke's crotch but it's not like she sucked his dick on stage.
Ooh, ooh... Lana Del Ray and SNL.
Do I get a prize?
Lana Del Rey on SNL.
Just watched the UK broadcast of this. What a bunch of puritanical, sex negative fannies you Americans. It was reported last week there is something like 1.3 porn sites per person in the US but you fannies get your undies in a bunch over this?
Firstly, she was brilliant until fat Robin Thicke came on stage but even then she dominated the performance with her cheeky faux-nude costume making fun of Thicke's nude video that you Americans have been watching all summer long anyway. Oh, what, it's only trashy when Miley does it? I don't think so. It was ALWAYS trashy and degrading and I loved the way she threw it back in his face.
For all the ones who have tried, Miley Cyrus is the heir apparent to Madonna. And she can sing. I loved her song. And she's funny sticking her tongue out like that. I don't think it's meant to be taken seriously. She's obviously having a laugh - she's probably still laughing about it.
R32 you clueless Brit, you just don't understand Cyrus. She's not making fun of anything. She's trying to make her new image "bad ass", "naughty"...that is "grownup" to her. You have no taste if you think she is talented, or that her performance was any good.
"Hey, y'all! I gotta cooter, an' I'm gunna show it t'y'all!"
Well she is a badass...and she's funny with it. Americans are so humorless. I think she just confused all of you and that disturbed all of you and you don't like that so you're all going to condemn her now. As if American pop culture otherwise knew no vulgarity.
Didn't care for GaGa's performance but I liked the track.
R32 needs a clue. You're giving Miley way too much credit. She didn't put nearly half that much thought into her performance. It wasn't some brilliant satire; it was about being a shock whore. Yawn.
R10, I need to visit an abortion clinic after watching that clip
Well I guess little whore Miley got the reaction she wanted - they're even talking about the whore on the nightly news (as if we're supposed to give a damn).
R32/R35 Please do us a favor and don't ever come to America, you ugly Brit. And I'm not surprised you're defending this whore - you like all of our trashy celebs.
[quote]Americans are so humorless. I think she just confused all of you and that disturbed all of you and you don't like that so you're all going to condemn her now.
Yes, Miley is the Dorothy Parker of pussy-popping, the Fran Lebowitz of twerking, and the benighted Americans just can't appreciate her wit and sophistication.
Agree with Vibeology, that one was so bad it actually ended her career.
This lesser known one is classic
R35 she's not bad ass at all. You must be an idiot to fall for this new, poser act she's doing. She's a fucking disney kid. This faux-thugette shit is very transparent, contrived and desperate.
[quote]Americans are so humorless
Why are you spelling it the American way, then? Oh, dear.
R26, Nicki Minaj's song "Roman Holiday" sounds more like a Skinny Puppy song than anything else.
"Faux-thugette"? Good gawd and, erm, how many white rappers were there on that show? America, still racist as ever, but whitey wouldn't have no culture if it weren't for the blacks.
Another bland, whitebread "performer" co-opting black culture.
Oh come on r10, that was fun. Not much musically, but that's hardly the point. This was when the hag was still playful. Love her insulting Sharon Stone's fake tits.
She did do a faithful rendition of Fever though which I'm sure you'll love. :D
Miley, Robin, JT - all white people trying to act black. Amazing how much attention white people get for imitating black culture yet many talented people who are actually black get ignored.
That's America for you.
Miley's most recent track and possible future single, "Nutti Tastes Nutti Good", found buried on a mixtape from Buena Vista Entertainment last week, suggests a naughty new direction for the chalk-tongued twerker. "Nutti", featuring a hook sung by Pit Bull and Chezney Tesch (the R&B-crooning nephew of John Tesh), serves as Cyrus' declaration of her love of scat.
"Where do I begin/Got a shit-eating grin" goes the sing-song chorus, which is vaguely reminiscent of kids' classic, "It's A Small World". The droning, mechanistic treat also features a litany of digestive shout-outs: "Born for corn! Chunks of lard make it hard!" screeches Cyrus, as she celebrates a newfound feminist ideology with a mouthful of her self-produced, rebellious new snack.
"She's guaranteed concert sell-outs and huge sales on her recordings."
Please, she hasn't been able to sell out a concert since her Hannah Montana days. People will forget about her in 3 days.

Over my cold, dead, cameltoed cooter they will, R49.
[quote][R32] you clueless Brit, you just don't understand Cyrus. She's not making fun of anything.
No R33, you are the clueless twit. Miley's performance was an absurdist farce. Women do this all the time in music videos, including Thicke's. Her performance was completely tongue-in-cheek and, in its way, taking to task all these male artists objectifying women in their videos. The over-reaction and pearl clutching makes her performance that much better. She's making fun of it all, but everyone is too "outraged" to see that they're the butt of the joke. The irony would be hilarious if it weren't so predictable.
Thanks, Professor Paglia at R51.
Okay, R52 made me laugh. :)
R36, no one in his right mind still says quips like, "Get a clue", anymore. Are you 60 years old?
All of you are just jealous old hags that have to post crazed and deranged posts about whether or not they are good! They're fine, and they're very talented artists, okay! Just drop it already!
Conversely r51, she could just be a dumb cunt with no talent.
Miley Cyrus did the most cringe inducing, hot mess of a "performance" ever!!! I laughed so hard my sides still ache today. She looked, and acted like a retarded hooker! It's is pretty bad when other celebs cannot contain their bewildered, and grossed out expressions! I love the expressions from One Direction, Will Smith & family, Drake, and especially Rhianna's unimpressed ""Bitch please look, LOL. That was a kiss goodbye to your career performance if there ever was one.
Britney gets a pass from me since she was going through some serious mental issues at that time, as a matter of fact, last nights terrible performances made me miss her. Britney can be amazing when she tries.
Paula Abdul's performance was a career killer, but still no where near as bad as Miley.
The Black Eyed Peas were pretty terrible.
Eminem & Elton John's duet was awful & cringe inducing.
Hey gayz. I have two songs on ITunes top five. Go buy them.
R57 is a jealous old hag with a big ugly pussy mouth!
R-59= Miley, with her thrush infested tongue hanging out of the side of her mouth like a retarded loon, picking the crabs off her STD infested cooch. The ugly, nasty, talentless, pathetic wannabee, skank.
R60, go crawl back under your hole and finger yourself to another Miley song, you pathetic wierdo! You have a crush on her!
Let me guess, at a tender age she left regular school and had "tutors" on set. Thusly, we have the mental giant we see before us.
Little Miley wouldn't know irony if it licked her cameltoe.
Stop talking about her in such graphic terms! She's good for what she is, and who could blame her for wanting to take a total break from her good girl image? All of you just want something to bitch about, and someone to scream at on a Monday night!
Miley was acting out her sexual psychoses and a lot of rage. She needs help. That shit last night was real messed up. She was being outrageous because she has real deep anger issues. Umm, yeah. So I vote for Miley. The absolute worst. Until the next time.
This greedy cunt really should have left the singing alone.
Who knew that Destiny Hope Cyrus had rabid fans here on the DL?
Oh wait, they're just drive-bys.
R-61, are you a bit confused dear?
R65: No effing way... LOLing!!! Damn.
R67, there should be no space or hyphen between the "R" and the post number.
Like this - R61 - I can click on it and that post will pop up for easy reference.
Like this - R-61 - it doesn't work.
And yes, that little girl at R61 does seem confused or perhaps she's simply incapable of adequately expressing her thoughts (such as they are).
We must try to remember, these kids are not used to speaking with adults unless they're in chat rooms with pedophiles.
R69 is a raging alcholic and a damn bitch! Go finger your hole, girlfriend! ANd R67...hahaha, didn't know how to properly label the posts! Hahahah!
R51 you're giving her too much credit and don't know what you're talking about. For the last year, Cyrus has been walking around trying this new phase. She wanted to be another white girl making "stereotypical black music" and ended up embarrassing herself. She thought she was cool as hell up on the stage doing her poor twerking imitations and gyrations. Anyone who thinks this performance was her poking fun at female objectification and male sexual dominance is an idiot.
That Lopez clip on Letterman - oh my god. I didn't know she was that bad, I just thought she was a run of the mill weak singer.
I wonder if Dave's people hated her diva antics and fucked with the sound so that her voice would come through instead of being obscured.
