Video Music Awards Round-Up0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:22 pm

The 2011 Video Music Awards (VMAs) hosted by MTV on August 28th were a momentous occasion in the 2011 music calendar, and there were definitely some surprises…

 
Firstly, a massive 12.4 million Americans tuned in to the live show, the highest recorded audience in the history of the awards. This is unsurprising, when popular artists were receiving handfuls of nominations. Katy Perry received 10, whilst Adele andKanye West took 7 each. Katy however only won 3, one being the prestigious Video of the Year award, along with Adele who won Best Art Direction and Best Editing. Tyler, the Creator however, shocked everyone in the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles as well as the viewing audience at home as he won the infamous Best New Artist, beating Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa and Foster the People.

Lady Gaga, known best for her outlandish outfits and crazed costumes appeared on stage dressed as a convincing man, another of her alter egos names Jo Calderone singing You and I. Beyoncé Knowles, more known by her mononym Beyoncé, then performed the eighth track from her hit album 4, Love on Top. She appeared in a sparkly pink tuxedo jacket with matching trousers, which she unbuttoned at the end of the song to reveal a baby bump, confirming rumours that she and husband Jay-Z are expecting a child. This shocking act prompted Twitter users to post franticly, breaking records as 8,848 Tweets were recorded every second, smashing the previous record of 7,196 when Japan beat the USA in the Womens‘ World Cup in July. Other notable amounts were on January 1st 2011 in Tokyo, as the new year arrived, nearly 7,000 were posted per second, and just over 5,000 after the death of Osama Bin Laden in May.

Chris Brown also performed 4 of his songs: Yeah 3x; Protect Ya Neck; Smells Like Teen Spirit; Beautiful People. During the fourth and final song Beautiful People, he appeared to fly over the audience to the stage in the center of the crowd and back again. This was later revealed to be a stage cable which he and dancers used to impress the crowds. There were also tribute to Britney Spears and the late Amy Winehouse. Dancers training in around Los Angeles ran from all directions and broke into spontaneous dancing to a medley of her biggest hits, such a “…Baby One More Time” and “Till The World Ends”. Russell Brand, a close friend of Amy Winehouse’s came on stage and read a personal account of what she was like as a person “First time I met her, she was kind of like a daft, dopey person, just wandering around a little bit crazy, like a lot of people who are drawn to big cities with a peculiar, unknowable talent.” Bruno Mars also performed one of her most memorable songs Valerie.

What do you think? Are you happy for Beyoncé and Jay-Z? Was Jo Calderone as bizzare as Yuyi the Mermaid? Was Chris Brown trying a bit too hard to do something different? Leave your thoughts below!
