What do U think?

love all them
I think russell brand is the best thing about it. Nothing special really…
OMFG. I love Russell Brand - LOVED it!
meh… i dunno kinda boring..
Leighton Meester was the most fun to watch at, and she's there for like 2 seconds…
Now that was fuckin FANTASTIC!!!!!! I'm gonna go watch it again-bye!
How can MTV still have this award show and keep a straight face.
2 snaps up and a circle of glitter, I liked it
Could they have picked worse singers? They all sound abysmal. There must me more talented nominees that they could have chosen. WOW!
odd….russell was quite good though…
russell is lame, and katy sounded really bad.
I was definitely surprised by Russell's singing ability. Maybe he should play Frank in the Rocky Horror Picture Show remake.
Russell Brand, Posh Beckham and Sasha Baron Cohen should be placed on the next flight to London and have their passports revoked, Obnoxious Overexposed Brit Crap Trio.
dear lord, Katy Perry can't carry a note! keep it n' the studio.
I think this was amazing. Anyone who sings or aspires to be a singer can tell this was amazing broadway!!! Russell Brand cracks me up everytime!!! I love how they put different genres of music together. Very awesome!!
ummm, lame & gay
That was awesome
russell brand is fantastic, glad he's hosting again
russell is good! taylor swift SUCKS! oh man.
I've never seen anything so terrible in my life!!!! LORD HAVE MERCY!! West side story is a wonderful movie /play and these people aren't up to the standards of even copying it.
im a katy perry sound but this was truely awful, didnt suit her at all
cobra part was good specially leighton, ne-yo part horrible fast foward that part katy perry God if you cant sing dont sing that bitch is talentless russel part was SUPER LAME and taylor was kinda sweet
I thought that was fantastic!!!!!!! Who could resist Russell's wish to impregnate Gaga?? loves.
i loved it!
LOVED IT! Katy Perry was a bit meh though. Russell particularly rocked it!
the song is terrible…and russel brand is annoying didnt he host last years? can they not find anyone else to host?
The concept had potential - it was a cute idea, but when these singers are placed outside of their own genre, they really can't carry a tune. They all have very weak voices compared to the powerhouse vocals needed for this kind of music. Decent attempt though.
I'm wondering if even half of the VMA's audience know about the classic musical West Side Story…Katy Perry's warbling nearly put me off watching the rest but I wanted to see what Russell was going to do - good thing I did because that turned out to be the best part.
I'm soorprised Russell Brand can carry a tune after all the drogas he's done. Taylor Swift sang it best. Katy Perry was adorable. NeYo's R&B so did not blend well in this white-washed musical. Pero, overall it was awesome!
why is Russell Brand the only one here who can sing?
russell sucks and has no business hosting. he is a loser. a total has been.
I'm a West Side Story geek and I loved it. They are showing much love to musical theater and its a good thing. You know what would be extra yummy is if the show has some of Broadways most respected talent come out and sing. I would love to see Broadway's Peters, Josefina Scaglione, bring it. Oh, I can go on and on………
And LIZA, I would die…THAT would be awesome if her and Lady Gaga would do a duet….Pass it along Perez, Pass it along…..
katy and taylor sounded so awful… but russel brand… hahaha! I love his part!!! lmao
sorry but that was awful…
what? No Heidi Montag?
Russell Brand is so funny here, but he sure can't sing. (In fact, strange how NO one sounded too great .. most of them are award-winninger singers!!)
I've watched MTV's music awards every year. Let's hope they step it up a little bit .. their awards shows have become more and more generic, long & boring.

I love love love it! This is the best advertising scheme MTv has come up with in a long time.
VMA SHOULD STAND FOR "VAPID MUSICAL ARTISTS".
Russell Brand fucking sucks
katy n taylor SUKKKKEEEEEDDDDD!!!!! russel was pretty fuuny thou bt all together nt so great
The only one who sounded good was Taylor and that's saying something. It sounded really flat and their voices didn't blend properly..
Katy Perry didn't sound very good
ridiculous that they chose Taylor Swift. She's overrated.
wow they should so do a celebrity musical.
Terrible, all of them, absolutely horrible. Off key, talentless and just too bad to even warrant the amount of money spent on this ad. Surely this is not the real talent that is out there?! WTF?!
The whole thing was super cheezy god, rofl but Taylor even though her voice sounds alright, totally pulled it off! She shines in this :]
Uh Gay… Leighten Meester sucks!
wow katy perry cant sing
Katie can sing better than that, and Taylor can't sing but damn can she write a good song.
I just hope the show does not suck like the last 8 or 7 years….they've been painful to watch!!!!
OMG i love it. Russel Brand is so funny.
Really? What an insult to Musical Theatre. Bernstein and Sondheim must be cleaning their ears out from hearing this filth. If they wanted to do an homage to a musical, the least they could do is find artists that could sing more than a mere studio-generated sound. Pfft. This is what entertainment is turning into.
Re: superstarblue89 – I thought the same! I just liked the begining with the Gossip girl girl Katy part was awful, not her type of song! and Ne-yo's part was blah
the last part was pretty good with taylor and then everyone
This video is truly a Gem!! It's fantastic I love it!!
Specially, because the west side story id based on Puerto Ricans hahaha.
Great video. I'll never forget abt it, and I'll laugh when I see it 10 or 20 years from now
i didnt think taylor swift was any good in this.. but i love russell brand
Who cares anymore?
I love Taylor Swift so much its redonk.. But she really dropped the ball on this one. Could they not have auto-tuned that funk or something? Damn thats bad!
ahaha lmao west side story.. i still havent seen that movie…
and lmao that vid was crazy!
That was so stupid hahaha. especially katy perry's part.
why did they have to butcher west side story?
katy perry singing voice really is unbarable
even in comparison to the others in the video, which is saying somthing
shame.. such a pretty face..
russell brand on the other hand, he is a right hoot!
they butchered my musical!!! russell brand was the best part though.
Loved the concept but didn't love all the singing. But VERY well done!!
omg. honestly this makes me really mad. this is such a crappy rendition of the AMAZING west side story. I bet none of these people, nor anyone who watches MTV has even heard of it.
Taylor Swift can't sing, she can write a good song, but her voice is f ucked!
Russel Brand was the ONLY thing entertaining about this stupid video.
Katy Perry, go kill yourself. You suck and can't sing.
Taylor Swift, go find a guy to buy you things and go away… That's really all you're good for. To look cute. Your music is horrendous.
It wasn't very good. Who knew Russell Brand could sing?
ive seen every episode, and really love it its a little addicting. and as of late, its getting better.
i love them all.
this promo videofor the vma's is great….. in theory.
but they werent cohesive.
their songs style clashed with eachother and it did not complement them.
it was terrible until russel brand and taylor swift sang.
it ehh, it was a bit of a hot mess- ish, though
HOW did Taylor Swift and Katy Perry become PROFESSIONAL SINGERS?!??! They obviously have no REAL talent since they can't even sing a song with more than a 3-note range… Wow I am really surprised that they're SOOOO bad. Thank goodness the songs they write are soooo simple with no talent needed to sing… Mostly yelling or 2 of the same notes over & over.
An actual GOOD TALENTED voice has 1.vebrato and 2.range!!!!!!!! Taylor yelled the whole time with no shimmer or vebrato in her voice AT ALL and Katy Perrys voice is unique but NOT GOOD for any type of music that involves talent and more than 3 notes in middle range, only a voice OK for pop songs with notes no longer than 2 beets so no one notices how she can't hold a note cause it sounds so bad! poor girls they are really the most average famous singers in the industry and after a few years when their trendy songs are not on the radio anymore they'll shrivle up into non existence.
the least mtv could do was pick singers with actual talent to sing a song like this…. yikes!!!!!!!
um, katy perry & taylor swift canNOT sing broadway.
i am officially in love with Russell Brand.
I love West Side Story, and I think they did this promo perfect. It gave me shivers. SO EXCITED TO SEE THIS.
LOLz!!!! Too funny!! I esp. enjoyed Taylor Swift and the sexy Russell Brand!!
It is amazing! I love Russell's bit! I'm so glad people are starting to get him more in the US cause I don't know any other reason to watch the VMAs.
and, why are people hating on Rusty's singing? He's not deceiving himself that he's a singer- for someone who's a comedian, not a singer, I think he did a'ight!
How sad is it that Russell Brand was the only one who was able to carry a tune?
Re: melie81 – Anyone who knows West Side Story can respect this and see just how great of a job they did.
Re: Serrenity – No shit !!!…You said that SPOT fuckin ON !!
Taylor Swift & Russel Brand should do a duet!
I think Russel Brand sings better than Katy Perry.
Re: baller988 – Amen! I guess that's what technology, sex appeal and high-priced producers are for.
icky - they were all entirely too far out of their respective genres to sound decent. i normally enjoy taylor swift, but she sounded terrible here. and don't get me started on katy perry. blaaah. you need to have musical theater quality pipes to carry ANY song from west side story!
It's pretty sad when Russell Brand was the best singer in the bunch
it's funny to see how there are no new good singers in mainstream anymore…
Awesome they should do a musical n_n
That was just as boring as West Side Story. Why they couldn't pick some actually good singers is beyond me. Here's to hoping the awards don't suck asmuch this year as they have since the last 90s.
This hurt watching and listening too. The only good part was russels.
And he's not even a singer. I swear my choirleader would have kicked the people out of the choir for crimes against music.
i lyked it.. the songs catchy!…2nite, 2nite
that was awesome they all sounded amazing esp tay n leighton!!!!!!!!!!!!
The SXSW festival has been marred by tragedy this morning.
Just after 12:30 AM, a man drove his car into a crowd of people on Red River Street in Austin, TX. 23 people were injured, and so far two have been reported dead.
The large crowd was gathered in line to see the punk band X as part of South By Southwest festival.
Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said in a press conference held early this morning that the suspect, currently in custody, was being stopped for a DWI and tried to escape.
His car struck several people and vehicles and killed a couple driving a moped.
Chief Acevedo says the suspect will be charged with two counts of capital murder for those deaths.
