The idea for the 'Madonna Through the Years' tribute was taken from a Los Angeles stage show already several years in production titled The Blonde Exhibition. Producer Dan Gore started the theatre show in the early 1990s, hiring several look and sound-alike Madonna performers to re-create the artist's performance career on stage. His last show was a year before the MTV Video Music Awards broadcast at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. See more »
Whether you love it, or you hate it, the music of 1999 revolutionized the scene and brought the entertainment industry to it's knees. Not since the 1980's has such a powerful explosion of variety and radio hits flooded the mainstream.
Hosted by Chris Rock, the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards served as the "Super Bowl" for MTV highlighting the year's best achievements. With a near-unending list of new artists, the greatest of the year gathered at the Metropoliton Opera House in New York City. Despite some rain, September 9th (9/9/99) was a day I will always remember. With; Kid Rock, Korn, Backstreet Boys, Nsync, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, TLC, Limp Bizkit, and a slew of others the show served as a personal reflection on "my" personal year of music. Though as expected many of the artists have since faded away, there is no denying the impact that they had on; MTV, the record industry, and myself. Not since has MTV had such a powerful year of new music and artists with such an intensity as my favorite era, 1999.
