Sounds more like the teen choice awards

The Canadian Invasion Begins!

Does this mean I have to stop making fun of The Biebs?

Solus said...

Lists like this are why I never listen to the radio....

dee123 said...

Pink's performance was great. Everything else stunk to high heaven.

rejectedcarebear said...

I'm mad that my favorite show Once Upon a Time wasn't on because of these 'awards' but I did see Boardwalk Empire- no spoilers but that episode disturbed my soul and I didn't sleep much.

FSP said...

This list of winners is exactly why I no longer listen to the radio.

Seachica said...

My iq just fell 10 points reading that list

KellyLynn said...

Are you sure these aren't called the Generic Music Awards?

PuggleWug said...

I listen to the college radio or CD's and have no idea who some of those people are. I feel old. I am surprised Linkin Park is still around.

Christopher Cruz said...

Ew.

AKM said...

Thank God for my indie radio station, otherwise I'd be stuck with this crap.

curlyhairslacker said...

@rej-now I cant wait to watch Boardwalk tonight! Sorry you didn't sleep well, though. :(

Thank God for Pandora listening at work!

WHAT ALBUM DID BEYONCE PUT OUT THAT SHE GOT AN AWARD. TO MY KNOWLEDGE SHE HASN'T DONE ANY MUSIC SINCE BEFORE SHE WAS PREGNANT, OVER A YEAR AGO???Sorry for caps

LottaColada said...

@CamColty that's exactly what I was thinking as I was reading all the names. Although I am a bit shocked that Tay Swift didn't win country album.

@sweerstarshine you're right about that!

Jules_345 said...

I had been so happy reading this blog and believing that Bieber was 'on his way out'...now, not so much.

And generic is right...yawn at the whole thing.

SusanB said...

@rejectedcarebear - I watched Boardwalk Empire too!!! Yeah - I had a nightmare about it last night. No spoilers but.....I never saw that coming.

rejectedcarebear said...

@curly- don't watch before bed!

@susan- I had a bad feeling in the begining of the episode that it might happen but I was not happy when it did.

Alicia said...

I'm a boardwalkie too .. And yes that episode was disturbing!! Gyp is CRAY .. Hate him but love his character.

Gah on this music list .. It all read like this

Crap
Who?
Crap
Crap
Crap

Etc...

auntliddy said...

Of course not!! Milli vanilli won awards too !! Lol

auntliddy said...

Wow- u shld hv been following the van alden story arc! Now that was dhocking!

timebob said...

so all the tweens got together one last time and voted for Bieber. I still think he is on his way out.

SusanB said...

I'll say this - if they ruin this relationship for poor Richard - I'll stop watching Boardwalk. I mean it.

timebob said...

and o/t to the Boardwalk chat I can never look at a crate the same way again.

rejectedcarebear said...

Oh agreed Susan. If anything happens to Richard or his lady, I'm breaking up with Boardwalk!

JJ said...

@rejectedcarebear, boardwalk empire was good last night but I agree it was disturbing. Kept me up much too late. I need to watch it again.

Van Alden - bummer.

JJ said...

@timebob. That crate is going to stay with me for a long time

JoElla said...

I have boardwalk on my nexflix que.. Hard to watch with hubby's weird work hours. We are planning to watch it someday...

For the show.. well I like Maroon 5 and have barely forgiven Linkin Park for those damn Transformer songs..

When is that Nicki chick going to go away?! Now please.

Bey won an award?! For what?!

Kinda bummed I missed Pink. Love her.

David Guetta? Is he that kid that won Idol a few years ago?!

chachi said...

The 'Canadian' Music Awards! :)

jax said...

why is it always the hot ones on BE???? WHY???

Lola said...

I hate half (or more) of these "winners".

timebob said...

Just keep in mind the AMA was Dick Clark's answer to the Grammy's when he lost the contract to produce them. It's just a popularity contest among the tweens, it means nothing musically.

Mooshki said...

Enty, I think you made a mistake - this has got to be the Teen Choice Awards, right? Ugh.

CanadianMiss said...

@dia It's a Canadian act of war, shape up or we'll keep bombing you with pop singers! :-)

BFSkinnerchick said...

Ugh, this list depresses me. I agree with those who said it looked more like Teen Choice Awards. Mainstream drivel. This is the downfall of American "culture." Give me Sirius XMU!!

Agent**It said...

SusanB, re Boardwalk, same reaction, nightmares and all.

dia papaya said...

LOL CanadianMiss! Are you really bombing us or just lobbing them over the fence like trash?

Poor Biebs - his own country doesn't even want him!

curlyhairslacker said...

OT: just watched Boardwalk-NOOOOOOO! :(((((

Hell, I'll never look at a pic of someone on the beach buried in the sand the same-what a scene! yeesh.
