2002 Billboard Awards Recap

2002 Billboard Awards Recap - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

This award show is usually pretty run-of-the-mill. This year, the 2002 Billboard Music Awards inched closer to the MTV awards in the crazy department with the help of a little four letter word from Cher.

The 2002 Billboard Awards are, when it comes to awards shows, somewhere in the middle. They aren't as cool or crazy as the MTV award shows but they aren't as stuffy and boring as the Grammys either. This year, the 2002 Billboard Music Awards inched closer to the MTV awards in the crazy department with a little four letter word from Cher.

Hot Performers:

The show opened with everyone's fave little misfit, Avril Lavigne, singin' her heart out with both Sk8ter Boi and Complicated. Other noteable peeps who strutted their stuff and entertained the crowd were Nelly and his posse (the St. Lunatics) with Hot in Herre and Mr. Timberlake with Cry Me a River. Justin couldn't do his usual pelvic thrusts and fancy foot work due to a broken foot, so he added a strings section and a large choir for extra flash. Looking more and more like Britney Spears everyday, Faith Hill also took to the stage and belted out her hit tune, Cry.

Big Winnners:

R&B landed on top at the 2002 Billboard Music Awards as Nelly and Ashanti cleaned up. Nelly scored six awards - including R&B/Hip-Hop Male Artist of the Year and Hot 100 Singles Male Artist of the Year. Ashanti probably needed an extra limo to haul all her awards home. She scored eight - including new R&B/Hip-Hop Artist of the Year, Top New Pop Artist of the Year, and Female Artist of the Year. Other peeps to snag some titles included two awards for Eminem, two awards for Moby, one for B2K and three for rockers Nickelback.

Classic Moments:

  • Drama queen Cher was given an honorary award and used the "F" word when talking about her critics. Sensors weren't fast enough and people watching the live broadcast got an earful!
  • Michael Jackson was honored with a special award as well for his 1982 album Thriller which spent more weeks at No. 1 (37) than any other album in the history of The Billboard 200. He thanked his fans for their support, but did not dangle any babies, during his acceptance speech from Neverland Ranch.

    Moving Tribute:

    The night ended with a moving, rousing tribute to the murdered rap legend, DJ Jam Master Jay from RUN DMC. Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Ja Rule, Naughty By Nature, Queen Latifah, and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, all sung Walk This Way, RUN DMC's biggest hit.

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

    Finding Nemo, only because Finding Dory took awhile to establish itself.

    Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
