If you ever want to feel old, go to a radio station concert meant for tweens. If you ever want to feel young, buy a beer at MSG -- they still card, even at my advanced age.
Bless their hearts.
I was there with one of my best buds, we can have fun anyplace. The evening was a smorgasbord of celebrities (Katie Holmes, Anna Kendrick, Ryan Seacrest), random rockstars (Enrique Iglesias, Fall Out Boy, Selena Gomez, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis), and desperate attention seekers (Lindsay Lohan).
Plus, the tix were free. What's not to love?
Here are the highlights:
This guy loves life. And why shouldn't he? Looking all dapper in a black suit and dress shirt that didn't show any of the sweat that was beading up on his bald head, he hosted a hottie hoedown with dancing girls in denim cutoffs and cowboy boots. His set was a total party -- def my fave act of the night.
Best Song: Timber
I was psyched to hear Blurred Lines. And it was good! Then I realized I don't care about any of his other songs (except When I Get You Alone). It was nice that he played the piano. And he actually sang. And I appreciated that he dressed up in a leopard jacket. But one fact remained: I don't care about any of his other songs.
Best Song: what do you think?
I knew I was out of my element when Jordin Sparks called all the "Mahomeys in the house." I'm sorry... the WHO? A man-child bounced out with an iridescent silver suit and Bieber's hairdo. Then he began to sing. And by sing, I mean forget to move his mouth because he was too busy looking like a dancing teenage Tin Man. And so, we started taking selfies to pass the time until the next act came on.
Best Song: Nothing. Nada. Zip. Stinky poo-poo.
Lead singer, Hayley Williams, just seems awesome. But during Misery Business, she plucked a fan from the audience (Brian), brought him up onstage, and handed him the mic to sing the chorus. She totally made his life -- and a great moment in the show.
Best Song: Still Into You
Apparently this doe-eyed Disney princess has been dubbed "Little Mariah." But the Supreme Queen of All Christmas Songs must be weeping over the aggravated assault committed against Wham! Ariana gave Last Christmas a whiny beat-down. Geez, what did George Michael ever do to YOU?
Best Song: I have no clue what any of her songs are called.
The star of the show was Miley "Hanna Montana Is Dead" Cyrus. Good thing she went last. Let's start with the outfit: I'm pretty sure Mrs Claus bedazzled Jane Fonda's aerobics suit from 1982 and Miley bought it in a yard sale. Then she spent her time onstage grinding on a drunk hobo Santa, a sexy little person, and a drag queen dressed like a Christmas tree. She's a mess. But boy, can that girl sing!
Best Song: Wrecking Ball
