A typically energetic performance from Pitbull–you couldn’t have an award show these days without inviting Mr. 305, and we pity the poor coordinator who even tries–and Christina, looking better than she has on stage in some time. Not a ton to differentiate it from Pitbull’s other dozens of award-show performances of “I Know You Want Me,” “Give Me Everything,” “International Love” and countless others over recent years, but the crowd certainly seemed to be feeling it–there probably won’t be another performance all night that has more audience members goofily singing along into the camera, anyway.
Oh yeah, there was one super-cool thing–Pit and Christina acknowledged the inspiration behind the irrepressible “Feel This Moment” hook by actually dusting off Morten Harket, late of synth-pop group A-ha, to sing once through the chorus of “Take on Me,” which had people in the audience going nearly as wild. (If there’s not a gif of LMFAO’s rapturous reaction by night’s end, we’ll be very disappointed in the internet.) See you again in another 28 years, Morten.
