They were not at the awards. They didn't even televise their category. The most rocking people there were Maroon 5 and One Republic. All the same, congrats on a shiny new award guys! It's pointy so keep it away from the kids.

Didn't even bother to announce they won on air, one of the biggest bands around? Fail.

That awards show was a train wreck. For some reason, they lumped Pop and Rock together.

So, favorite Pop/Rock album nominees were:
Adele - 21
Lady Gaga - Born This Way
Rihanna - Loud

Favorite male artist, Pop/Rock:
Justin Bieber
Bruno Mars
Pitbull



IMO, if you're going to lump rock with pop - just drop it all together.

Yeah, I wasn't a fan of the show probably becuase I don't like most of the music. I can't believe that they didn't televise the Alt Rock category. What.The.Fuck.

And the Biebs scored *zero* fashion points last night. He needs a new stylist.

My thoughts exactly! I wouldnt have watched if I knew they werent televising Alt Rock( was the most painful and at the same time laughable "show") Can they call THAT shit music? I think not! Not in my world---it equals a waste of digital effort...
Thank goodness for the real thing---ie Rock Music!

That explains why they were not on the show. It was advertised they would be there. They were very smart to pull out. That show was beneath their talent. Unfortunately I watched waiting to see them. Way too much Pop music in the world. Not enough Rock. Trust me I live on the East Coast and we have no Rock radio stations anymore. Still can't believe that!

You're right. I just looked through all of the past winners and man they were always crap. Rock music always got shafted and lumped in with Pop acts (Sweet Child O Mine nominated with Never Gonna Give You Up) except when they had Heavy Metal categories in the early 90's. The first few years of the Alternative category also looked pretty good, but then I saw that Creed won twice and Linkin Park won it three times.

yes, it was a painful show. when nickelback came on to present an award, it just added to the terribleness.
