VMA Side Story

The VMAs are on September 13th, and to help promote them, a "VMA Side Story" promo has been launched, featuring Taylor Swift, Cobra Starship/Leighton Meester, Ne-Yo, Katy Perry, and Russell Brand. The promo has each of the stars singing a bit of Tonight (or the quintet, to be more specific) with changed lyrics and different settings than the play/film. It's kind of a mess, but it's sort of cool I guess.

Ne-Yo's choreography is laughable, Katy Perry's voice leaves much to be desired, Russell Brand should never try singing again, EVER, but the Cobra Starship/Taylor Swift portion of the promo isn't all bad. Taylor's voice is more pure and stage-like than the rest, and Cobra Starship does a pretty good job with what they have. And Leighton Meester has one line...could it be that she's not that great of a singer?

What are your (you few readers...) thoughts? Please comment!

  1. I don't care if she can't sing, she's hot...God I sound so shallow. No, I think she can sing...but maybe she doesn't have that big a range.
