MTV EMAs 2013: Eminem performance definitely wasn't lip-syncing

Say what you will about Eminem's "Saturday Night Live" performance, the rapper showed up ready to impress at the 2013 MTV European Music Awards. Viewers definitely won't be able to play the lip-sync card on his dual performances of "Berzerk" and "Rap God."Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, seemed energized for his performance, no doubt helped by the fact that he was performing to a packed arena and not a small studio audience. While Mathers' rep said he wasn't lip-syncing on "SNL," but was just layering his voice with backing tracks, it wasn't much of an issue during the EMAs, as his voice came through loud and clear.After the performance, Eminem accepted the Global Icon award from Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), and the two put on a rather unfunny comedy act, with Marshall channeling Steve Carell's character in "Anchorman" with a simple, "I love award." He then admitted that he doesn't know who Afrojack is, like... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/mtv-emas-2013-eminem-performance-definitely-wasnt-lip-synching.html

MTV EMAs: The Killers sound kinda like a Bruce Springsteen tribute band

The Killers were dubbed "one of the biggest bands of the decade" at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards, where they performed a medley of their latest single, "Shot at the Dark," and their first hit, "Mr. Brightside." While that claim can certainly be put up for debate, one indisputable fact is that the band has been around for ten years. They're celebrating a decade of existence with a greatest hits collection called "Direct Hits," which includes "Shot at the Dark" and another new song, "Just Another Girl." Another fact: the band has always claimed Bruce Springsteen as an influence, but "Shot at the Night" sounds like a newly recorded cover of a Boss B-side from his "Born to Run" era. The Killers started out with an '80s-influenced sound with the new wavey "Somebody Told Me," but at this point in their career, the Springsteen sound is so overt that they could totally pass for... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/mtv-emas-2013-can-we-all-agree-the-killers-now-basically-a-bruce-springsteen-tribute-band.html

Austin Mahone beats Ariana Grande at MTV EMAs 2013 for Artist on the Rise

It was neck-and-neck all week -- Austin Mahone and Ariana Grande were facing off for Artist on the Rise for the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards and nearly every other hour, the lead changed. As of earlier today, Grande had about a 1000-vote lead on Mahone. But Mahone's fans pulled it out for the 17-year-old YouTube sensation from Texas. Upon learning of his win, live from the MTV stage in New York City, Austin had this to say to his fans:Thank you, thank you. I just want to say to all my fans thank you for voting for me. I wouldn't have won this award with you. I love you guys and appreciate you from the bottom of my heart.This comes on the heels of Austin's win for Artist to Watch at the MTV VMAs back in August. Looks like we've found the heir to the Bieber throne, huh?Mahone then took to the stage to... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/austin-mahone-beats-ariana-grande-at-mtv-emas-2013-for-artist-on-the-rise.html

MTV EMAs 2013: Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' without Miley Cyrus is much more boring

Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke took the world by storm (and horrified it) with their medley performance of "We Can't Stop"/"Blurred Lines"/"Give It 2 U" at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, but at least the performance was entertaining to watch.When Thicke took to the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards on Nov. 10, his rendition of the same song was lethargic and boring as he was surrounded by mostly nude backup dancers and had Iggy Azalea take to the stage to sing with him. Thicke clearly learned his lesson about twerking with female singers at the VMAs, because he stayed far away from Azalea while performing "Blurred Lines" and then headed to a piano to sing "You're My Baby." It's unclear why exactly he was sweating so much during this performance, but at least people shouldn't find fault with him being inappropriate this time around. As for Cyrus, her performance of "We Can't Stop" was... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/mtv-emas-2013-robin-thickes-blurred-lines-without-miley-cyrus-is-much-more-boring.html

MTV EMAs 2013: Miley Cyrus twerks on a little person to 'We Can't Stop' - watch

The actual 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards that were held in Amsterdam kicked off in a big way after MTV aired some live performances from New York City at the top of the broadcast -- with Miley Cyrus and a cast of crazy space characters.Miley, flanked by a a little person in a black leather bodysuit, took to the stage to perform "We Can't Stop" -- at least the beginning of it. Does it count as twerking if you're grinding on a little person's bosom?Cyrus then threw the intro to the host with, "Give it up for your intergalactic host of this year's EMAs, Redfoo!" and Redfoo, of LMFAO, started the show. What did you think of Cyrus and Redfoo kicking things off? We'll post video as soon as we have it.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/mtv-emas-2013-miley-cyrus-twerks-on-a-little-person-to-we-cant-stop---watch.html

MTV EMA 2013: Katy Perry is a human maypole, disco ball, 'Prism'

At the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards, Katy Perry performed "Unconditionally" while suspended high above the stage. She began the song looking like a human maypole. After that, the singer flew into the air, resembling a disco ball. It was only at the end that the "Prism" motif -- derived from Perry's album title -- was more obvious than these other themes.You can't fault Perry's showmanship. This was easily the most colorful performance of the night. It may have even been one of the most beautiful, and it was hard to look away. It's just that the meaning behind Katy Perry's show didn't always come through.With the maypole-style beginning, one might have wondered how exactly Perry stayed perched at the top of a tall and thin pole. Dancers circled her below, each wrapping a brightly colored drapery around Katy. The motif changed a bit partway through the song. Leaving her maypole perch, Perry literally... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/mtv-ema-2013-katy-perry-is-a-human-maypole-disco-ball-prism.html

Kings of Leon perform 'Beautiful War' on MTV EMA 2013 like grownups

Kings of Leon brought the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards into the grownup zone Sunday (Nov. 10), taking "don't make a scene, dear" literally with their performance of "Beautiful War" off the band's new album, "Mechanical Bull."There was no twerking; there were no pole dancers and no naked painted ladies, and no one descending from the sky dressed in mirrored prisms and wrapped in a maypole. There were just beautiful lyrics, expertly-crafted musicianship and a tiny bit of pyrotechnics -- because after all, it's still an MTV awards show.Performers like Austin Mahone -- who helped open the show from a live New York stage, rife with elaborate choreography and half-hearted lip syncing -- should take note. Sometimes it's just about the music. And that's OK. Thanks, Kings.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/kings-of-leon-perform-beautiful-war-on-mtv-ema-2013-like-grownups.html

Miley Cyrus 'Wrecking Ball' MTV EMAs 2013 wardrobe malfunction distracts from great performance

At what point is Miley Cyrus just going to come to an awards show naked? She's done pretty much everything butat MTV awards shows this year, and it backfired when she took to the stage at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards to perform "Wrecking Ball."Or rather, we should say it "front fired." Cyrus' lady parts were very clearly visible through her skin tight one piece outfit, and the white, somewhat see-through material revealed she had a bit of a camel toe.Whoops? At least Cyrus didn't twerk or grab little people's behinds during this performance, which actually was quite lovely. She sang directly to the camera at multiple points while a video of her crying played in the background, clearly trying to recapture the vibe of her Terry Richardson-directed music video.Hey, she got the naked part right. ... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/miley-cyrus-wrecking-ball-mtv-emas-2013-wardrobe-malfunction-distracts-from-great-performance.html
