It’s the night of the MTV Video Music Awards! With so much new music dropping and drama between all the musicians’, one can’t help but wonder if tonight’s show will go smoothly or be a complete trainwreck.
To be honest, I didn’t even know the VMAs were this week until yesterday. Other than Demi Lovato & Fifth Harmony, I had no idea who else was performing or who was set to host/present. And those are the only two performances I watched. #SorryNotSorry.
So naturally, this post will be short and sweet. I just wanted to communicate the feels I got from Fifth Harmony’s performance.
First let me start by saying congratulations to the girls for winning Best Pop Video for “Down”. As a foursome with new music, this was their first award and as a harmonizer I was very proud.
And then came their performance. I laughed in the beginning. I shouldn’t have, but I did. The performance started out with the four of them on stage joined by another hooded member in the center. As soon as “Angel” started, that hooded person was knocked off the stage by the beat. People want to keep talking about the elephant in the room, but obviously they’re tired of it. And people need to get over it. This was their way to end the topic. Camila is doing fine by herself and Fifth Harmony is still holding it down together.
Normani and Lauren slayed their verses in “Angel” before they fell back to join the fallen member and the lights cut off.
The performance continued on with their first single off the latest album, “Down”. The four appeared in separate boxes and kicked their way out before breaking it down with the chorus.
When Normani started the second verse and dropped into the splits, I was Bebe Rehxa and Hailee Steinfeld as seen in the following:
Then Ally went on with her verse before they all passed their mics off to the dancers to start a dance breakdown. Honestly, the dance was not clean at all. But i’m not a fan because of their dancing, I’m a fan of their voices and their personalities.
After the dance breakdown, Gucci came on stage with his own little back up dancer.
The end was epic as they sang the last chorus. Water started pouring down on them and on the last beat, they dropped the mic. Literally and figuratively.
Check out their performance:
Now I’m off to watch Game of Thrones. Have a great week everybody!
