Red Carpet at 2013 MTV VMA

Probably the 2013 edition of the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) will go down in history for three things: the reunion of Justin Timberlake with ‘N Synch, the performance of Miley Cyrus and the names excluded from the awards ceremony. Starting from the last point, which is perhaps the most “in theme” with the event that annually awards the best music videos, it can be said that Justin Timberlake was the star of night. The prize list has seen Mr. Suit & Tie win the Best Direction (David Fincher just to Suit & Tie), Best Editing (with Mirrors), the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, and of course, the prize of prizes: Video Of The Year, won with Mirrors .

Remained dry mouth, the rulers in music of the year going on, Robin Thicke, but especially the duo Daft Punkduo that has not seen even a small recognition award. And the two Frenchmen were involved in a little surprise, presenting them -when everyone took it for non-participants in the evening- to deliver the Best Female Video to Taylor Swift.

Speaking of performance I highlight precisely the performance of ‘N SYNC with Justin Timberlake for a nostalgia that has revived the two hit Girlfriend and Bye Bye Bye and the choreography of Miley Cyrus that, in the titanic effort of wanting at all costs to forget Hanna Montana, is approaching supersonic speed to the ultimate limits of good taste (see the duet with Robin Thicke).

Last, but not least-in fact performed for first-Lady Gaga. The live performance of Applause was marked by the transformation: was marked by transformation: number of changes of outfit-resembling the music video, for five energetic minutes. Perhaps the only really convincing moment of an evening, closed by Katy Perry, that now it is increasingly replicating itself.
