Most of the time, I do not bother with music award shows. Regardless of who determines the recipient of the award, it never seems as though award shows really celebrate the musicians or music. In addition, the "live performances" are often dry and unoriginal. As a result, I really do not find awards shows very entertaining and settle down with some studying or some Netflix instead. But, occasionally, my roommates, friends, or family coerce me into a viewing. This year, I was forced to watch the 2015 American Music Awards. Inspired by that experience, here are my favorite parts of award shows.
1. Nicki Minaj's reactions
2. Nicki Minaj's tweets about the awards and/or the award shows
3. Nicki Minaj calling people out
4. Nicki Minaj's AMAZING acceptance speeches
5. Nicki Minaj's incredible performances
6. Nicki Minaj's fashion choices
8. Nicki Minaj's ass(ets)
9. Nicki Minaj's costumes
10. Time after time, Nicki Minaj always brings something interesting to the show
There is not much else to look forward to in these award shows.
Through the cheesy introductions, awkward jokes, and weird audience dancing, Nicki remains a beacon of quality entertainment. Nicki is not only a master at her craft, she constantly proves herself to be a role model for young, aspiring musicians everywhere.
A tip to award organizers everywhere: just invite Nicki. It is all you need to ensure your award show will be entertaining. It might mean your shows do not go as planned, but it does mean that you will have a good time.
