There was some stiff…ahh who are we kidding? There was some odd competition in the Top Rap Artist category at the Billboard Music Awards tonight. Nicki Minaj, Drake, Flo Rida, Pitbull, and Psy (?) went head to head for the honor during the 2013 ceremony, but when all was said and done the choice was pretty obvious….
Nicki Minaj took the gold!
We’re still trying to figure out how Gagnam Style Psy was even a nominee, but until we have an answer, let’s just focus on the present. Was Nicki your choice for top rap artist?
Everyone is taking a look back at the year that was, including YouTube, which made a mash up/remix of the top 11 videos from around the globe for the year. Of course, Psy’s “Gangnam Style” is the crux of the video as it’s not only the most watched of the year, but the most watched ever, overtaking Justin Bieber during the Thanksgiving holiday. It has more than 976 million views as of lunchtime today.
Twitter also released its top lists of things that happened on that social network, including top tweets (We heart the Obamas) and the “gold medal” events that had us talking (take a guess). Check that out here.
There wasn’t an abundance of color at last night’s American Music Awards. But there was a moment where Psy, the South Korean creator of the internationally popular song and dance “Gangnam Style” performed the song that made him famous. In the midst of the high energy performance Psy introduced a special guest, the one and only MC Hammer. Check out the performance below.
The audience was certainly feeling it. Looking at this video, it’s hard to believe that Hammer is 50 years old. He hasn’t missed a step.
