Piercing Ken Thoughts: So I should admit to you that I didn’t watch a single minute of this broadcast and am only sharing the winners with you as a bit of media public service. I’m too much of “The Metal Guy” to be focused on all the stuff that usually takes this kind of awards over but despite that I was happy to find Lady GaGa winning a few awards. She is a big Metal fan according to reports and I think she is super talented and the same applies for Bruno Mars. I was shocked to find Coldplay winning out over U2 in terms of “Best Tour” for sure but hey what can you do. It’s my hope that you are enjoying this sort of presentation as I plan to keep it going as these rundowns begin circulating. If you want to see some of the previous ones that were documented, please just click HERE to open a new tab with the other shows. I will see you again soon.
