For starters, if you heard that Jennifer Lopez fell down, well, it's true. During her performance of 'Louboutins,' Lopez was climbing on the backs of her dancers (while wearing Louboutins - ouch!). As she jumped off the back of the last dancer, she landed poorly and fell flat on her rear end. Ever the professional, Lopez jumped up and continued on with the song. Lopez is no dummy, however, and surely realizes this will end up on YouTube. This is one tape she can't get a court order to prevent from going viral!
Another performance that will have people talking tomorrow was from Lady Gaga. Surprised? Doubtful. Lady Gaga knows how to entertain and everyone remembers her crazy yet compelling performance at the VMAs. Once again, Lady Gaga spared no expense with the theatrics. Playing a piano that's on fire? Ok! Breaking glass with a microphone? No problem!
