Fallon is just OK and the awards ceremony isn't anything special; but the Guns are back!
27 November 2005 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

I don't like Jimmy Fallon so it is hard for me to "review" this program properly. Last time I submitted a review it mysteriously disappeared a few months later so I better be careful what I say this time.

Overall I don't feel this awards show is particularly good. I'm not into MTV to begin with and seeing Eminem and Ja Rule and co. perform doesn't do anything for me. The highlights here were Bruce Springsteen and, of course, what everyone remembers it for today - the comeback of Guns N' Roses. (Well, surprise appearance, anyway.) They kept hying the "surprise" the whole way through the show and they kept playing GN'R music so it was fairly obvious I suppose that GN'R were going to be there. When Axl and his new band come out at first and he starts growling into the microphone it really is blood-chilling...but then he starts singing and it goes downhill pretty fast.

I actually thought it was a good performance in terms of energy but I admit his vocals weren't up to par. We'll have to wait and see what comes of GN'R - it's been three years since the '02 VMAs and we never got a "round two." If you like the artists involved with this, give it a shot. The only reason I'd ever watch it again is for the GN'R performance.
