The performance sounded good on TV. I know a lot of performances are recorded badly, the recordings of the festivals I went to sounds nothing like the real thing.

CDT: 15/10/2011 London | 26/10/2011 Birmingham

PWT: 10/05/2014 Newcastle: Katy touched my hand | 31/05/2014 London

^That's exactly what I thought when I went to the CDT, her voice was great all night and was better than in recordings

this is called a signature. doesn't seem to do much but I think it secretly has a superpower it uses when I'm not looking. just a feeling.

I can't see Lockhart, is he still dancing with her ?

yes, with a beard
I think he, Leah and Scott just randomly up and left Taylor Swift's tour just to go back to Katy cause Leah wrote all these tweets about making right decisions and stuff a few weeks ago. And I think something might have happened between them and Taylor because she unfollowed all of them on twitter and Lockhart and Scott unfollowed her too.

Well she probably unfollowed them because they broke contract and just left her tour. I don't think anything happened between them, other than the 3 of them decided to go back to Katy in the middle of Taylor's tour.

The way they kept on referring to Roar as the biggest hit of her career.... it's been out for about three seconds and hasn't even been released everywhere yet. It just sounded dumb to say it so soon.

KPs performance was good! Not her best, but I liked it. I feel like the sound wasn't correct in the beginning, then it got normal. I guess their was audio issues? Live wise, KP was my second favorite. I thought Bruno Mars was amazing live. I don't like his music much, but I give the guy props. He sounds amazing live every time. Justin T performance was ok. He hardly sang lol. Im not for all that dancing junk. I want SINGING! Mileys performance im my opinion was not bad. I mean yeah she went a little wild, but she doesn't have to stay stuck in Disney forever. People need to get that. She isn't 10 anymore lol As for Gagas performance, I thought her vocals were rocky at first, then got better. As for the "show" she put on, I was not impressed. That whole getting dressed on stage is a carbon copy of KP and Madonna, so I don't give any points to someone that copys... overall, no one was horrible. Wish I could have gone to see KP live! :pinkbow:

Sorry I'm posting damn near a year later...but I just wanted to share this experience with KPF although it was after I registered. I've been nostalgic today, so don't blame me for stealing thunder from this year's happenings

I got my tickets from 1iota...never knew it would be THAT easy to get into this performance, let alone any VMA show!! I found out and requested on the 14th that month, then got the tickets a week before the show!

I slept at my cousin's house the night before, I left Baltimore at 11:30 the next morning, made it to NYC by train around 2pm, then made it to my hotel at 3pm after waiting for my cousin's friend and catching the subway to get there. The dead time was nothing much, we had lunch at Shake Shack (good burgers & fries by the way), I took pictures in front of Barclays...nothing too special.

We left the hotel and caught a cab at 7:15 that night and 10 minutes and plenty traffic later, we make it to the area, snapped pics of the golden truck and got in line. The line was backed up near the Manhattan Bridge when people started making their way in just 5 minutes after we made. Once I was in with my one-day buddy, we got our wristbands in yet another waiting line, then I went with some others to shoot clips for the "when-we-come-back..." promos during the show (keep in mind, this is tape-delayed, so when this goes down, Miley was probably twerking her butt off >:( ). After we were done, it was getting dark, there was about a half hour until showtime under the bridge, and we were at least 10 good feet from the boxing ring and I was getting a bit...anxious.

Now for the performance itself...when she showed up on stage, the crowd erupted. She performed twice and I took pictures the first time, then the second time, I recorded it on my phone's camera/camcorder; I did try to bounce my eyes back and forth so I can still enjoy everything through my eyes and ears...and I did! Seeing Katy with my own eyes was so surreal...I had to look at her Sanskrit tattoo on her arm to make sure that was real. :lol:  When she was done, we were all chanting "Ka-ty" like we're at a sporting event and it was amazing!! I was excited, thrilled, and feeling so good, especially since I could finally be around some KatyCats...but I didn't talk to any of them though. I really wanted to, but I got shy when I got there.

It's now 10 at night, and as I walk out of the park and out to look for a cab, I see people hanging around by a gate...I could easily tell they were waiting for Katy to show up, take pics, socialize a little, and enjoy her company for just a wee bit longer. We waited almost an hour an a half, and I endured a whole bunch of screaming and clamoring for Katy (they tried everything....even someone yelled out her full gov't name :lol: ) and by the time she came out, JT won Video of the Year, people on TV had already seen Katy ROAR and I'm just thinking of how many people will ask me about meeting in the weeks after. People got pictures, hugs, and talks galore, but when she came to me, I got a little shy and all I could do was just get my picture...probably because I didn't want to anger the guards by getting too friendly or that I got a bit worried of what another guy near me could have said. I calmly said how I came out from Baltimore just to see her, but I think Katy was more into getting her best smile in the pic.

I got back to my hotel around midnight with 20 likes on Instagram and the warmest feeling in my heart since...um...going to prom with a date, I guess? :hehe: It was an unforgettable night...the first live performance I ever attended, and it involved an artist I enjoy! I only have three regrets: not being able to bring someone I know, not talking to Katy, and not getting a little social with a KatyCat before the show. Sorry if I didn't mention the person that came with me very much...she was calmly enjoying the performance. Not bashing her, but she didn't match my excitement, so I felt a little disconnect there. Nonetheless, this was a legendary night on my record book!!!  :dreamboat:


Oh, and don't forget the photos. These are my best shots...didn't get much of me or the other girl or plenty more good pics because my phone camera I had that day is outdated and the rest of the photos I didn't share were blurry.

Last, but not least, our picture. No filter here unlike my avatar pic. Just a little brightness touch-up on a dark, grainy picture. ;D

We could've predicted that Taylor would write a song about it. It was so predictable! She writes about everything...

So you're telling me that this so-called "rivalry" between Katy and Taylor started before my very own eyes??? :o

...and I didn't see it coming
