Kanye came off very professional, like the perfectionist he is. Its too bad that haircut makes him look like an automatic loser.
Jay came off very natural. I think he wins this one by default. Not to mention his verse during Coldplay's "Lost" caught the crowd off-guard.
Wayne came off a little nervous and looked like he was maybe trying a bit too hard. Like sitting on the stairs for no real reason. Doubt that was in the original choreography.
And T.I. tried to get hype but came off as trying to steal the thunder, not to mention he didn't hit his lines to their full potential. He also seemed a bit nervous.
M.I.A. was just happy to be on stage with them, they drowned out her parts with the recorded hook.
I thought T.I.'s "Dead and Gone" performance gave him a lot more justice than this, but he still fell short of expectations on that, too. I guess you can blame it on his unnecessarily fast tempo and desire to rhyme big words together.
Wayne's "Tie My Hands" was great, but Thicke didn't hit the notes that made the studio version a masterpiece.
I beg 2 differ, other than Jay's "Jock'n My Fresh" & "Hova" parts everything else just went wit da program.
Wayne's performance was da most animated & had da most participation from da rest of da guys on da stage. Plus da way da n!gg@ 'swagged'
(no pun intended) across da stage b4 his verse showed a lot of personality & stage presence. :dancingcool:
