I suffered through teh MTV VIdeo Music Awards not to hear the music (oh lord, no), but to see the presenters. As I Tweeted earlier, the VMAs would be a pretty cool show if only there was no music.
Anyhow, an hour into the show, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Cam Gigandet, and Taylor Lautner, stars of Summit Entertainment’s highly anticipated Twilight, came out to introduce the live performance for best rock nominee Paramore.
The intro was incredibly brief and all the actors got to say their lines, except Pattinson, who was obviously supposed to do the actually announcement, but he only got to say “Please welcome…” before VMA host Russell Brand cut him off and started blabbing. Pattinson tried to talk into his mike two or so more times, but couldn’t get a word in and in the end, it was Brand who said the band’s name, which led into the performance.
Ok, fine, it’s a live broadcast so shit happens, but what’s insulting is how MTV has been promoting the hell of out the fact that the Twilight stars would be at the VMAs and then you barely see them and they get cut off, too.
What makes me laugh is that BEFORE the show aired, MTV Movies Blog posted an entry asking Twilight fans to post their reaction to the VMA presentation, thinking, I’m sure, that everyone would be so happy. But after that foul up, the comments are coming in from many a pissed-off fan.
So, screw MTV’s page, leave a comment here below to let us here at Geeks of Doom know what you think of the botched-up Twilight presentation.
Just found the footage of the Twilight segment at YouTube, so watch it here below while it’s still online.
