Initially, we were going to use this post to share our favorite performances. We thought there would be more than two, but we landed on just BTS and Chloe x Halle. In all honesty, this year’s award show is weird. The whole year has been weird, but because everything was done mostly remote, it’s hard to keep consistency. Even as much as I love BTS and their new song “Dynamite,” I hated that everything was done a green screen. It made the performance look cheap despite how well they did on vocals and dancing. They deserved so much more! They still took home four awards and to have a performance like this on a more mainstream network is a huge win for army.
Chloe x Halle were part of the pre-show and should have been promoted to the real award show. This was a missed opportunity because their vocals were amazing as usual. Their performance could have easily been swapped with someone that they had on the lineup.
