    people are tired of these rubbish popular singers it reflects in their ratings.

  • EatMorePez

    ABC was certainly not a winner last night.

  • Flame

    Next ABC will tell us they are a winner because they won in the all important demo “Men named Smith living in Denver, Colorado, aged 27.5″ or so…

  • Melanie

    There are just way too many awards shows on now. Too bad that alot of these artists just don’t sing live anymore. Too much lip synching and autotune, not to mention theatrics and gimmicks just to get people to watch. Boy, how I miss the good ole days when you actually had people that sang and played instruments and could put on a great performance without all the flash that dominates these days.
