Justin Timberlake Rippers the Los Angeles Music Awards
The Billboard Music Awards is an annually occurring contest that is selected by a panel of music insiders, industry insiders and music lovers. The Awards are held monthly at the Sony Pictures Network’s American Music Awards in Los Angeles, California. The Awards honor achievement in various categories, including album of the year, song of the month, the band of the year, songwriter of the year, artist of the year and multiple sclerosis national senior citizen of the year. Previous Winners have included artists like Britney Spears, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Usher, Mariah Carey, Marlou Lou Knowles, Akon, Britney Spears, Elton John, Luther Vandross, Outkast, J.J. Simpson, Madonna, Akon, LCD Soundsystems, Chris Martin, U2, Fiona Apple, Nirvana, Smirnoff Ice, Motley Crue, Justin Timberlake and many others.
The first ever Billboard Music Awards was held in October 2021 and featured music awards in over one hundred categories. The Awards are chosen by a panel of music media insiders, music industry news, music store owners, radio station managers, music videos executives, music buyers, music writers and others. The winners of the Music Awards have made an enormous impact on the music industry and on music fans everywhere.
Since the inception of the Awards, there has been constant criticism directed at the Awards process and the way in which they are chosen. Many feel that the process of choosing the winners is rather “rigorous” and the process of voting is not transparent enough for the general public to have confidence in the music awards. Critics also believe that the Winners are selected with too much disregard for the preferences of the audience.
Unfortunately for all concerned, the Critics are right on both accounts. The Music Awards is a complete farce. They are not representative of the music industry as a whole, they are not representative of music fans as a whole, they are a complete and utter commercial failure. For decades now, the Music Awards has proven to be nothing more than a huge commercial flop dressed up in the once noble tradition of Hollywood award shows.
The problem with the Music Awards goes way beyond just the fact that they don’t give the public any say in who wins them. The problem goes deeper than that. The Awards, by their very nature, are a complete farce. They are so completely ineffective in their self-serious nature that they make the Grammies look like a real award show. If you take away the Best Rock score, the only thing that truly matters is who was nominated, not who is performing. Sure, Justin Timberlake is a great performer, but there are a lot more talented performers out there.
So, while we’re on the topic, how can we pin the blame on Justin Timberlake for the entire downfall of the Music Awards? Well, aside from the fact that he won four of the previous five Grammies, he also took over the MTV awards with his insane live performances, which made him a crossover star in addition to being a well sought after pop vocalist. This is why I can’t pin the blame on Justin Timberlake, but rather I must acknowledge that the Grammies are a complete and utter joke.
